Happy Monday Everyone!!
“Happy Monday”… ha, that might be an oxymoron…
Just in time for Monday, the dark rain clouds have reappeared. Good timing if you ask me!
Last night, I prepared a bowl of overnight oats that I will definitely be making again. I am rarely full after my usual bowl of overnight oats, but the combination of ingredients of these particular oats have left my taste buds and tummy feeling fully satisfied!
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbs chia seeds
- 1 tbs coconut flour
- 1 scoop good chocolate protein powder (I used Vega One Chocolate)
- 3/4 cup of non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened chocolate almond milk)
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1/4 cup raspberries
I always try and keep a bag of frozen bananas in my freezer -SO convenient!
For these oats I used 1/2 of a frozen banana and frozen raspberries:
And microwaved them until they were a beautiful melty fruity mush:
Then I added the rest of the ingredients and mixed thoroughly!!!
After a full nights refrigeration – My oats were ready, delicious, AND voluminous!!
Great way to start off the morning!
Onto my yummy eats from last night:
Yesterday after work, I was tired, hungry, and conveniently happened to walk by a hugeee Whole Foods! The one I go to is about 10 times smaller.
In my grand excitement, I walked in, wandered the aisles for a bit, and decided to get some food from their hot/salad bar.
This was really great, and exactly what I needed.
Along with a few pieces of this dessert:
88 % cocoa – Now that’s speaking my language! One of my new favorite chocolate bars!
The darker the cocoa percentage = more antioxidants = more health benefits = winner winner chocolate dinner!
Do you have a favorite brand/flavor of dark chocolate? I love trying new brands and flavors!
Peace, love, and chocolate –
