Strawberry Banana Vanilla Overnight Oats

Ugh I'm not running my 10 mile run today because my calf muscle and achilles still hurt...I'm dying! I can't look at anymore running pictures because I'm so sad! It's so frustrating when your body won't heal as quickly as you want it to. I love running. It makes me feel like a superhero, my legs can really tight and I get this crazy energy. So, I know by not running today that I will get better faster so I can start running again but a part of me thinks I should have tried to run. I ran a mile on the treadmill yesterday and it was starting to hurt so I made the decision to give my bib away. Goodluck to all the Broad Street runners, I envy you and you are awesome!

Last night I made few mason jars of overnight oats because I made almond milk and I needed to use up my oat milk. This morning I had strawberry banana oats and they were yum. I also made chocolate peanut butter banana and a vanilla fig jar. I'm on the hunt for new and interesting fruit to try. I'm still gearing up for a fully raw May. I'm going to go full steam ahead with fruit, smoothies, salads and overnight oats this week. I'll be posting recipes! Colorful recipes!

Strawberry banana vanilla oats:
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 1/2 cup of almond milk
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
6 strawberries, pureed
1 banana, sliced

You can use a mason jar or bowl for overnight oat recipes. I love mason jars, they are wondeful to take on the go.
Pour the oats and milk into the jar and mix. Mix in the protein powder. If you're using a mason jar, put the lid on it and shake it up. Put the strawberries in your food processor and process on high until the strawberries are pureed. Add the pureed strawberries to the oats and stir. Lastly, slice up a banana and add to the jar. Put the lid on the jar and refrigerate overnight.
I'll post the other recipes this week. You can add flaxseed meal and chia seeds to this smoothie also.

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!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
