  1. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Overnight Oats

    September 13, 2015 by pb&v

    I started writing this post weeks ago and never actually got it posted…. I started classes again a few weeks ago (boy, that 2 week summer vacation flew right by!) and I am now commuting to campus, which is roughly 25-30 minutes away (without traffic). Which means I don’t have time to eat breakfast at home in the mornings, at least not if I want a decent parking spot. I have class until 1:50 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and from 8am – 11:50 on Tuesday. I also work from roughly 12pm-5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I don’t get to go home for lunch either. Thus, I have started actually doing some meal prep for the week on Sunday. I’m pretty bad at planning out meals because I’ll usually plan something and once it comes time to eat it, I’m really not in the mood for it at all. But I’ll try to stick with it this time. (Also let me know if you’re interested in a post about my weekly meal prep??)

    The mornings have been all about overnight oats. I’m a huge fan of oatmeal for breakfast because it’s so versatile. You can change the flavor up so easily, plus it’s super quick and easy to make, especially if you grind up the oats prior to cooking them. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to actually cook oatmeal in the morning anymore, so I’ve switched it over to overnight oats, which I’ve actually been enjoying quite a bit. I thought I would hate eating cold oats, but they’re actually really refreshing on these crazy hot and humid mornings. And if you want a warm breakfast, you can just pop the whole jar in the microwave for a minute or so!
