Today you can catch me guest blogging about life's timelines over at Girl With The Red Hair as Amber and Eric enjoy their time in Cinque Terre, Italy. It was my absolute favorite town on my Europe trip last May. You can read my recap of The Cinque Terre here. It's one of those places that you can only dream about living...so quaint and picturesque.
I've been experimenting a bit with breakfasts. I recently picked up this Stoneyfield vanilla yogurt, which I can add to smoothies, mix in berries, etc.
This was found inside the lid. I totally agree. It says "Organic brings economic opportunities to many small family farms. Organic agriculture also reduces farmer exposure to persistent pesticides known to cause cancer."
I figured it was the perfect time to try out the overnight oats you hear about over the internets. Essentially, you take dry oats, mix in your yogurt (and chia seeds for me), top with berries, bananas, and whatever else you wish and cover it to sit in the fridge overnight.
The verdict? The vanilla yogurt is good, but the raw cold oats just isn't my style. The texture is off. I'd rather make hot oats w/ banana cooked in any day. Have you tried overnight oats?
