I just made my first jar of overnight oats a few weeks ago, and it was love at first bite. I remember when I was young, my dad made me peaches and cream hot oatmeal. I had one bite and I gagged (sorry, Dad, it wasn’t you, it was that ready-made packet and flavor!). Ever since then, I’ve always felt “meh” about oatmeal, and even though I can stomach it now, it’s not anything really special. I just eat the oatmeal for its soluble fiber. 🙂

So, seeing all these posts about overnight oatmeal, I decided to give it a try. And I’m so glad I did! I added sliced almonds, almond milk, and almond extract in mine, and threw in some frozen wild blueberries, for good measure. I ended up making this six days in a row. Now that it’s getting warm and humid, cold oatmeal sounds perfect!

And my husband even liked it too. He’s logging in crazy running miles (ten miles is just a “jog,” and he seriously ran 23 miles in 9-degree weather) and swimming major laps at the Olympic-sized swimming pool near here, and does it all on a mostly plant-based diet. I’m so proud of him – he’s at the weight he was when I first met him, thirteen years ago, feels great, is flippin’ fast, and on the same journey I am on, eating-wise. And even better than that, my four-year-old LOVES this, and is not even an oatmeal-eater! Friends, overnight oats is where it’s at! Make it tonight to have the easiest breakfast, tomorrow morning!
