It's not what you think..
Upon request of my dear friend the waldbillig here is how to make overnight oats, I post this to prevent you from having to scroll through many pages of Google in order to find a combo that makes sense, as I did.
Basically in any overnight oats combo you must have three components in equal ratios. For example 1/2 cup oats with 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. Yogurt can also be substituted for a mashed banana. Beyond those three components you are free to add whatever you wish, pop in the fridge overnight and voila, a filling and yummy breakfast.
I made my oats last night in this Skippy jar as to use up the last of the peanut butter. Because I have run out of Greek yogurt (AH) I took an idea from one the blogs I frequent, I can't remember which, and mashed a banana to substitute. I also mixed in the last of the almond milk and a tablespoon of wheat germ. In the morning I tossed in a handful of Kashi Good Friends cereal. It was so so good and I will definitely be trying this again.
Does anyone have any tips for making oats more filling?
I am very excited for my NYC trip tomorrow. I want to be able to enjoy the day without letting my ED get in the way. I hope that when we go out to dinner I will be able to pick something that I actually want rather than what my eating disorder deems okay.
I won't be able to post tomorrow but coming Sunday or Monday I will give a synopsis of my trip!
I won't divulge details of what restaurant I am going to or what area I will be in for safety reasons, but when I get home I won't hesitate to share.
I hope all of you have an amazing weekend!
