Baked Apple and Banana Oatmeal

Good morning!! It's Saturday yay! Last night I made the best oatmeal and I wanted to tell you how it came to be.

I got home last and was wondering what to eat because I was starving. My fridge died and my landlord stored all of my food in his basement fridge so I kept some fruit in my apartment. I spent like an hour figuring our what to do...should I order takeout, who was going to have raw food, I don't really have any money to order takeout. I scoured over all the vegan restaurants in y neighborhood and found out one place had closed already since it is a cafe and one place lost the lease on their UES place soooo...the other places were too expensive. Then I thought about just eating a big plate of fruit, them I thought about not making anything and just going to bed. Then I thought about my rolled oats and decides to make some oatmeal. I didn't have milk to splash some in to make them creamy but oh well. I boiled 1 cup of oats in filtered water like I normally do and I added some coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon and kept stirring. Then I sliced up an apple and a banana and stirred them in. It was getting bubbly and delicious, like baked oatmeal. I kept the oats on the stove a little longer on low them transferred the yummy goodness to my favorite bowl and ate every single bit of it. One cup of oats is usually too much to finish but I finished it all because I was so hungry!

What a lovely, hearty breakfast for fall when the mornings are super chilly. Today I'm headed to an event in NYC that is all about vegan food,it's called The Seed event. That have vegan cooking demos, speakers and best of all free vegan food tastings! Yum I'll have to tell you all about it in another post. And today I get my new fridge...yay!! So I can make food again.

I booked my first yoga class at the studio I took teacher training at so I'm teaching my first class on August 21st yay!!! I'm nervous it I figure I will teach one of the classes I wrote for my teacher training and just practice the class over and over again until I memorize it. I've been taking some wonderful classes at Sonic Yoga that are helping me break down poses and get a feel for how the teachers teach the class. I'm excited to get right into something that I want to be a huge part of my business.
Enjoy this beautiful weekend!! I can't believe we are seeing back to school ads in stores, it feels like the kids just finishes school for the summer!

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.
