food! nom nom nom!

I had recently read about vegan overnight oats.. and was skeptical... yet still intrigued! So last night I made a batch and gobbled them up for breakfast this morning. SO DELISH. A perfect summer breakfast because they are served chilled.

I based my concoction off one from Oh She Glows.

I mixed up some old fashioned oats, vanilla extract, a smashed banana, flax seed, and a drizzle of honey! Put it in the fridge overnight, and top it with whatever you please in the morning! I added a scoop of peanut butter on top of mine, and layered some maple syrup in the middle.

Since I was pre-making breakfast. I decided to go ahead and make part of my lunch/dinner the night before too!

Chickpea Salad
- Can of Chickpeas (drained)
- Chopped carrots
- Chopped purple onion
- Drizzle of EVOO
- Feta Cheese
- Parmesan Cheese
- Season to taste!

Then I marinated some cucumbers overnight in EVOO, Apple Cider Vinegar, finely chopped purple onion, Sugar, Salt, and pepper!

I added a whole-wheat pita tuna melt to the mix and called it a day.
I felt super energized today. Ran around and did some shopping, went to class, and hit the gym.

P.S. both the Overnight Oats and Chickpea salad are super filling! Try them!
