Are you on the Overnight Oats train? I am! I love cold oats more than their warmed-up counterparts.
That shouldn’t surprise me, since I also prefer to drink iced coffee year-round–unless I have a hankering for a hot latte.
Most recently, I’ve been enjoying my version of Apple Pie Overnight Oats.
It starts with rolled oats, of course, along with almond milk and 2 teaspoons of chia seeds.
But the star of my breakfast is homemade cinnamon applesauce.
I had some aging honeycrisp apples in the fruit bowl, and rather than toss them in the trash, I opted to peel, core and roughly chop them.
They went into to crockpot with 2 teaspoons of water and about a cup of water. After they cooked all day — making the apartment smell fantastic– I mashed the apples with my potato masher.
Why not? The masher doesn’t see much action otherwise.
Voila…homemade applesauce. It’s delicious — and the perfect addition to my overnight oats.
Never looks like much, but take my word for it. Yum!
Scale-wise, things are still bouncing around. Lost 3.1 two Saturdays ago, then regained most of it last Saturday.
I weighed myself this morning and have managed to take some of it back off. Hopefully by this Saturday, I’ll be able to enter the 240s.
I’ve decided September is going to be my month of tracking. I want to track my eats–honestly, rather than tracking breakfast and lunch and then not finishing dinner & snacks.
I can do it, as long as I take it one day at a time.
