Homemade Cereal


My posts have been few and far between so I plan on writing a lot more! I had a maple cinnamon granola recipe on deck last night but my oven wasn't working so I have to call my landlord today...which is weird because in PA I own my condo and I have a brand new oven. I'm not used to relying on someone else! So I had a plan to photograph the granola this morning and post the recipe but I'll have to do that later today! I made this cereal though and it was so delish so good things really do come to those who wait :)

I'm officially in NYC for a whole week and I'm loving it. My yoga teacher training classes are kicking my butt but I get a break at the beginning of every week so I'm workig on writing, studying, working out and making my meditation corner. I'm back to running!!! I can officially run without pain in my leg and the East End trail run is full of beautiful nyc scenery that I will be taking pics of tonight and posting. It's another dreary day in the Big Apple this morning which calls for breakfast in bed!
This cereal is just a slight deviation from overnight oats but you end up with a completely different consistency. This ends up being a chewy cereal, a lot like how your cereal tastes when you soak it in milk for a while. I haven't bought regular cereal in so long. I grew up eating cheerios and bran flakes and all that fun stuff but not all cereal is made with whole ingredients and of course you have to worry about GMOs


So, here is my fun fantastic cereal recipe. Make this the night before consuming...or at least a few hours before.

1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of non dairy milk
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
2 tbsp of almond butter
1 oz of goji berries
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 chopped dates
Blueberries

Combine the oats, milk and protein powder and stir well. Add the goji berries, cinnamon, walnuts and almond butter and mix into the oats. Lastly, stir in the dates and top with blueberries. You will end up with a chewy, sweet delicious treat for breakfast.
Oh my new obsession: almond butter. Get it at Trader Joe's!

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!


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!


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.
