I have a new obsession with overnight oats!!

Today’s breakfast:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana, cut up

I’m in breakfast heaven.

:)

Overnight Oats Recipe #1
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup milk (I used Lactaid non-dairy milk)
1/2 banana
1/2 tbsp chia
1/2 cup blueberry (I used freeze dried because I didn’t have any fresh ones)
cinnamon
It was pretty good! Very banana-y. In the future I would do less banana, or add the banana right as I’m about to eat it. 
Also, all of the freeze dried blueberries floated to the top, which was a good thing for me because their texture was chewy and unappetizing. I just scooped them off the top and didn’t eat them. Next time, I’ll definitely use fresh blueberries (but Trader Joe’s didn’t have any yesterday!)
I didn’t even notice the chia. 
Probably in the future, I’ll use almond milk over cow’s milk, just for the flavor. 
But, no complaints! I’d recommend it :) 
(Tomorrow I’ll try one that has yogurt in it)

Suggestions from followers??

Hey Tumblr loves :) 

My life has gotten considerably busier lately, which means that I haven’t been spending a lot of time preparing meals that are good for me. 

I have a 9 to 5 job, which means that I usually eat breakfast, lunch, and daytime snacks at work.

After work I have various evening commitments and activities, which means I get home late and end up eating toast or something else that is “easy.”

I want to start preparing food over the weekend, so that I can eat it all week.

One meal that I’ve made recently that I LOVED, was mini bell peppers stuffed with quinoa and chicken. I put them in a tupperware and had them for lunch for multiple days. 

I need more ideas for what to cook over the weekend!

What kinds of foods keep well? What kinds of meals re-heat well?

I’m also going to try overnight oats for breakfast - do y’all have any other ideas for breakfasts I can prepare ahead of time? 

Thanks!

I’m going to pretend like I know how to cook and make some quinoa-stuffed mini bell peppers tonight.

Fingers crossed it goes well. 

I’m so stoked. :) 

Quinoa with red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, tomatoes, and garlic.

For dinner I made the stir fry recipe on the back of the Trader Joe’s quinoa box.

IT IS AMAZING

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT

It is so simple and so delicious.

Here it is:

Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry with Quinoa, Peppers and Basil

  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s Organic Quinoa prepared with chicken stock according to package directions
  • 2 cups Trader Joe’s Chicken Broth
  • 1 1/2 pounds Trader Joe’s Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Tenders
  • 4 tablespoons Trader Joe’s Garlic Flavored Olive Oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 20 leaves fresh sweet basil, julienne
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cut chicken into one inch pieces. Heat large nonstick skillet over high heat and add the oil. Add chicken and saute for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Add onions, peppers, and saute for one or two more minutes. Add garlic and saute until peppers become slightly limp, but still bright, about one to two minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from heat. Add basil and quinoa. Toss until basil wilts and garnish with parmesan cheese. Serves four. 

(Or serves one person for multiple days, as in my case!)

:)

Roasting garlic mmmmyuumm

Anybody want to share?

I have brie too :)

This is my new favorite thing of life. 

I just started a MyFitnessPal account

Its function is more of a “food diary” for me, rather than calories counting, because I’ve realized that I have been making some not-so-intuitive food choices lately.

I won’t be posting intakes or net calories, but if anyone is interested in being my friend on the app, message me privately! 

Here’s to healthier, more intuitive eating!

This assumes a normative three-meal-a-day schedule. Really, you should just eat however your body wants you to. It’s called intuitive eating. And if that means “skipping a meal” according to normative standards, then go ahead. But the core message of this picture is true - don’t skip meals because you think that’s getting you in the direction of losing weight. It’s counterproductive because if you deprive yourself now, you’re more likely to binge later.
Feeling the pressure to skip a meal? Eat something small or light instead. Your body will thank you!
