Overnight oats are one of the most nutrition make ahead breakfasts. This beautiful beet version takes only 10 minutes to prep!
Oh hey guys!
Sorry to disappear on you there for awhile. We had the best surprise on March 4th, our little nugget arrived – 19 days early! – and filled our world with so much love and joy (and a lot less sleep) haha.
I am so excited to introduce you guys to our sweet little Wylder Theo Pleskot. He didn’t exactly make his entrance the way we had imagined but we are over the moon to have him here safe and sound. You guys have requested that I share more baby related content as I learn the ropes of this whole motherhood thing. I am so excited to share as I learn and that you guys are interested in this too! So more of that to come! I shared a bit about his birth story here if any of you are interested 🙂
With his early arrival, it meant I didn’t quite get to batching all that content I had planned for you guys. Haha. I thought I was so organized, I had my calendar all laid out with topics and recipes, shooting penciled in to to get some videos up for you guys… but at the end of the day, you can’t always plan for these things! I thought this would really stress me out, but right now, nothing feels more important than spending time as a new family and making sure our little nugget feels loved and gets lots of snuggles (did you know that cuddling your babe actually helps with brain development!?! I’ll take it!)
So please bear with me as the next few months will probably be a bit sporadic here on the blog. I’ve quickly learned that you also can’t really plan your days with a baby. Haha. Some days he is super sleepy and comfortable laying in his little baby nest and other days he wants to be held and carried all day long…these days it seems to be more of the latter.
Ok, but I do have some food for you guys today! I’m really excited to share this recipe with you! I was actually planning to share it a few weeks back but better late than never right? We have been having some gorgeous spring weather in Vancouver! I find as the seasons change and the weather warms up I naturally start craving colder foods – salads, smoothies, and my morning oats suddenly feel a lot more appealing cold.
This simple overnight oats recipe is so fresh and bright. Even though you can find beets at the grocery store year round, their earthy flavor (and of course the gorgeous color – I can never get too much of that fuscia color!) is such a nice balance with the fresh raspberries and kiwis.
For this recipe I used Rogers Food Porridge Oats and Ancient Grains. Oats are definitely one of my favorite ways to start the day. With the combo of both soluble and insoluble fiber they are powerhouses when it comes to balancing your blood sugars, keeping you full and more recent research shows they likely help promote good gut health. Can’t really go wrong!
If you’re looking to get your little ones involved in the kitchen, this is an awesome one to start with! It is surprisingly easy and topping the bowls is always fun.
I hope you guys enjoy this healthy overnight oats recipe! If you try it out, be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see your creations!Print
