I like oatmeal just as much as the next person.
I’ll happily eat them all for breakfast…just not today.
You see, Wisconsin has decided to shun it’s tundra-like reputation and take a turn for the tropical. It’s only day two of the humidity-filled heat wave, and already, I can’t think of anything worse than a Monday morning breakfast of hot oatmeal, hot coffee + a sweltering 95 degree apartment. I mean, do I really want to wake up in a pile of sweat, take a cold shower, start profusely sweating again, bike to work sporting serious pit stains, profusely sweat some more and spend the first 15 minutes of my work day fanning myself down?
I think not.
Instead, I’ll take a massive bowl of Overnight Oats, a venti iced coffee from Starbucks + a to-go stick of deodorant, thankyouverymuch.
Because Overnight Oats are cold, creamy and utterly perfect for the intolerable summer heat.
My favorite basic recipe goes a lil’ something like this…
1/2 cup oats +
1 (6 oz.) container vanilla Greek yogurt +
1/2 cup milk +
1 T chia seeds (or flaxseeds)
…mix + soak overnight then in the morning, top with…
lots of cinnamon
1/2 cup strawberries, bananas or fruit of choice
1 T drizzly peanut butter
Makes one Everythingtarian-sized bowl
Iced coffee + deodorant not included.
