Super Clean Oatmeal


Since I'm waiting for my Arbonne order which includes chocolate and vanilla protein powder, I decided to give my blender a rest as far as smoothies go. So, oatmeal it is! And man was it delish :)
First, I soaked some oats in water overnight. I do this when I make oat milk so I did it for oatmeal. We are learning in IIN that it's important to rinse your grains before consuming to help your body absorb all the nutrients. This morning I rinsed the oats and scooped 1 cup of oats into boiling water. I made oat milk with the rest of the soaked oats.


I kept stirring the oats as they cooked. I waited until most of the water was absorbed before I poured the oats into my bowl. I added the following to the oats
1 tbsp of agave nectar
1/4 cup of coconut milk
2 tbsp of peanut butter
1 cup of fresh strawberries
1 tbsp of chia seeds
Stir everything into the oatmeal and enjoy.

Some variations: one serving of oats is 1/2 cup of dry oats. You could measure out just one serving. Add almond butter or walnuts, flaxseed meal, goji berries or cacao nibs. There's so many awesome, healthy foods you can add to your oats.
Tomorrow: overnight oats!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
