I used to hate the idea of overnight oats. I thought they’d just be horrible, cold, soggy, mush in the morning. Then, I came up with a recipe I actually adored (see it here), and I was so wrong! They’re now my favourite thing to have for breakfast. I love to make a big batch of oats to last me a few days, and it saves so much effort in the morning which is great because I am NOT a morning person!
I wanted to share my favourite combinations of ingredients to make great overnight oats, but I never follow a recipe, so it’s more of a ‘chuck everything in, hope for the best’ situation. Hope that’s cool with you.
I’ve included approximate measurements next to each ingredient but, like I said, I never measure or use a recipe, so it’s just down to you and how much of each ingredient you think you’ll like.
Remember the time I tried to give up dairy? Well, one of the things I struggled with was thinking of yummy things to eat which didn’t contain cow’s milk. If I didn’t plan ahead, I ended up eating dry toast for lunch.
So, I decided to create a Pinterest board (which you can see & follow here) to help me with my meal planning. As well as that, I thought I’d do a little round-up of some of my favourite dairy-free recipes here on the blog.
In part 1 of this series (read here), I told you I was reducing my dairy intake because I was hoping it would help clear up my skin. In part 2 (read here), I talked about some of the things I ate during the two weeks, and how I kind of struggled for ideas, and I wasn’t happy that I was getting the right nutrition for me.
Now for the crucial bit – the results! Was there any benefit to me giving up my beloved cheese for two weeks?
