Superfood Overnight Oats

I know, I eat chia seed pudding or overnight oats every morning. Are you bored with these recipes yet? I'm not! I've been stuck using all strawberries because I need to go shopping. I haven't had bananas in a few weeks and I miss them! I also miss dates a bit but I haven't bought them in so long since all I do is eat them....nature's candy! I miss them when I see some amazing raw desserts. I may have to cave and buy a bunch to make a recipe or two.

Back to breakfast! Tonight I made overnight oats for breakfast tomorrow with a few of my favorite superfoods. Chia seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, flaxseed meal and 3 sliced strawberries.

1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 tbsp of chia seeds
1 oz of goji berries
1 oz of cacao nibs
2 tbsp of flaxseed meal
3 fresh organic strawberries
3/4 cups of almond milk
1 scoop of protein powder
2 tbsp of peanut butter
Yes, a ton of ingredients! Combine the milk, oats and protein powder and mix well. Add in the rest of the superfoods and mix. Add the peanut butter and mix well then slice the strawberries on top of everything. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

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.
