Do you overnight oats?

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 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?

Happy Tuesday!

I haven't tried the overnight oats yet! Not gonna lie - I've been tempted b/c during the summer I get *hot* eating warm oatmeal, but I'd probably side with you on this one - texture/etc, just not my style...
I do a modified overnight oats... I put oats & skim milk in a tupperware container overnight and then I pop them in the microwave for 90 seconds... so I still eat them warm. I tried eating them cold but wasn't a fan. So I really don't eat them traditionally but it's a quicker cooking method v. cooking them on the stove.

Your guest post was great! I thought about it all the way into work... and I thought more about what I am going to do about my upcoming 30th. Ok, it's not quite 'upcoming' since it's not until 30, but it's still on the horizon and even though the 30 before 30 list is helping me feel 'in charge' of my destiny, I think I need to do something else. So I am strongly considering doing a bday trip to Paris next Feb or Mar...

Oooh, a bday trip to Paris sounds like a peeerfect way to celebrate life at 30! Go for it!
It's so funny that this is popular now; my mom used to make it in a gigantic bowl for all her little chirren growing up and we thought she was SO old fashioned and weird for it. And yeah. They're disgusting ;-)
I've done the overnight oats a couple of times! It's a different kind of taste but I enjoy them occasionally - and there so convenient!
