…because soaking the oats, in the simplest terms, makes them more easily digestible by the body. You also don’t require the addition of heat when you make them this way, which helps to maintain all of the essential vitamins and minerals in each individual ingredient that you add.
In addition to this, they’re just so darn easy to make: soak your oats in a non-dairy milk of your choice, add a little sweetener, mashed banana, fresh fruit, chia seeds, chopped nuts, cacao, or whatever goodies you prefer, and leave them in the fridge overnight to soak. They’ll be good to go by morning, and will last a few days in the fridge.
Breakfast of champions!
Coffee, some fruit, overnight banana/maple syrup oats & dairy free scones!
So good, and so good for you!!
Do you guys know why overnight oats are better for you than regular?
Good morning everyone!
I had a really busy night at the station, lots of flooding around the city as we got way too much rain..
Once I got home I got a phone call from the modeling agency.. Believe it or not, but they wanted me to do another job for a catalogue.. Not the bests timing, but who am I to turn down getting paid for standing still ;)
So I got my bag packed and headed out the door… Wish me luck :)
That feeling when you’re covered in sweat after a great gym session and you know there’s a delicious dinner and a glass of red wine waiting for you :)
Shoulders and abs today, and in about 5 min I’m gonna devour some vegan & gluten free pasta Alfredo!
But first a shower :)
Finish the week strong, and start the next one with momentum and not a guilty conscience!
I will do no such thing ;)
Unfortunately I feel as tired as I look :(
Had a super busy day here at the station, but I had a red lentil curry dinner and a great workout, so I can’t complain! :)
Just brushing my teeth and heading to bed…
Good night everyone!
Just 55 days until puck drop now..
Thought I’d honor King Lundy with an arm session and a dorky selfie ;)
Here it is guys, the intro to my/our new Youtube channel.. It´s not quite up and running yet, but I´ll be sure to let you guys know!
Without going into too much detail, it´s gonna be my Canuck (a holistic nutritionist student and chef) and I posting a bunch of videos about workouts at the gym, at home, at the cottage as well as lots of cooking tutorials and recipes..
Our logo will be done in the next couple of days, so we´ll add that as the last frame of the intro.
Enough yapping, I want to hear from you guys!! What do you think about the intro and the upcoming Youtube channel???
You know I´m gonna need ya´ll to subsribe to the channel right? ;)
Anyways, looking forward to hearing what you guys think..
Have a good day/night everyone!
Sorry about the swarm of selfies lately, just wanted to post a little update and I figure that a photo always makes it a bit more interesting!
Anyways, did my first “modeling job” today. How about that, haha.. I’m not getting a big head or anything but a modeling agency paid me to be in a catalogue so that should be classified as a modeling job, right?
Not sure if I’ll get more assignments, but they seemed happy enough so let’s hope so.. I don’t mind getting paid for a couple of hours of sitting still ;)
Also, in a couple of days I’ll be posting the intro to the YouTube-channel I’ve been talking about.. Figured I’ll post it here first to get your feedback, always like to hear what you guys think..
Have a good night everyone, I’m about to enjoy some tacos with avocado aioli ;)
Sorry for the bad photo. Just wanted to say thanks for all the well wishes.. My back is a little bit better today and I managed to do a light workout..
Hoping for a really calm night at the station, exciting stuff happening tomorrow.. But you’ll have to stay tuned for that ;)
