This weekend I’m hopefully saying “Yes to the dress” and in a couple of weeks, Brian and I will be having our engagement shots done! We are so excited! With all of these exciting times ahead, I am trying (of course) to get a little slimmer. Right now , i’m on the eating clean bandwagon. I’m limiting the number of processed foods in my diet. We will see how that goes!

I’ve  admired Lauren Conrad since back in the good ole days of the reality TV show, Laguna Beach. I still like to follow her on pinterest and look at her website.  I think she has great style and I love seeing her different looks.  She also  gives some great fitness and healthy living advice on her website .  I think that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so I’ve been trying to figure out new healthier things to eat! “Overnight Oats” is a concoction LC eats and I tried them out today! They were fantastic. I normally start to get realllly hungry right at about 10 am but this meal kept me fuller for a little bit longer!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2/3 cup milk {or milk of your choice, I used Skim but you can also use almond milk}
  • 1/2 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup vanilla {or plain} Greek yogurt {I used non-fat}
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. The night before you plan to eat your oats, mix together all of the ingredients listed above and seal in an airtight container.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture overnight {they will be ready in about 3 hours, but overnight is best}.
  3. Enjoy when you wake up with a fresh cup of coffee!

I topped my mine with a little bit of brown sugar, strawberries and chia seeds. By the way, if you didn’t know, chia seeds have a lot of health benefits such as helping with weightloss, reducing blood pressure, helps you feel full faster, and has tons of omega-3 ( even more than salmon!)

    That looks delicious! I’ll have to pick up some yogurt and chia seeds after work and start eating this in the mornings. Topping it off with berries would be a good way to get my fruits too.

    Reblogged this on Otherwise Simple and commented:
    Okay okay, I know I have been MIA for the past 2 weeks. I have no real “crazy” explanation other than work and life has been more busy than usual, which leaves me mentally drained and has resulted in my lack of blogging. I promise I’ll be back soon!! In the meantime, I’m highlighting a recent post by a blogger I follow. Overnight Oats! yumm!

    Enjoy! &teri
