Breakfast like a Queen

My breakfast used to consist of an iced mocha & if I was lucky, a poppyseed muffin. Yah, it was bad. I soon realized that starting my day with milk, sugar, and carbs guaranteed an early afternoon crash & other ugly side effects.

My excuse was that I didn’t have time to prepare a healthy breakfast before work. Well I’m calling BS on myself and any of you who make the same excuse. Overnight oats have changed my mornings and I hope they do the same for you. They are quick, easy, nutritious, and delicious. You know what they say: Eat breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess, and dinner like a pauper.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup regular oats
  • 1 cup almond milk | and more if needed |
  • 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled and smashed
  • 1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Add all of the ingredients listed above to a mason jar and mix it together. I usually prepare my oats before bed. Oats will really soak up the flavors of the fruit and spices you add to them, so have fun with it. Once you’re done adding your ingredients just stick it in the fridge.

You can certainly substitute the almond milk for regular milk.. I just prefer to avoid dairy as much as possible. Sometimes if I only have a banana on hand I’ll add a little bit of vanilla extract to my oats to give them a little oomph. The options are endless.

The next morning I put my oats in a big ole’ bowl and top it with more fresh fruit and some extra almond milk. I’ll add a handful of almonds if I don’t quite feel full and off to work I go. Enjoy your morning beautiful!

Overnight Oats Fact: According to Japanese Scientific Research, full ripe bananas with dark patches on yellow skin produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. The darker patches it has the higher it’s immunity enhancement quality; Hence, the riper the banana the better the anti-cancer quality.

Niner Nation, Spaghetti, & A Recipe

This morning I woke up, opened my blinds & looked outside with my sloth eyeballs. The first thought that came to mind was, ‘I have to run today”. So, I did.

I also stopped and said hello to my favorite neighbors, Bessie and Esther. They are stinky bitches, eat grass, and let people squeeze their tits all day for milk. But I love them. There are 3 cows, 1 bunny, and tons of chickens. I was concerned that I would get chased off the property by the owner in his carhartt overalls with a shotgun, but it was worth the risk. Here are some photos I took while I coughed up a lung.

I came home, drank an ice cold glass of water, and made the most delicious shake ever. It had strawberries, blueberries, rasberries, 2 scoops of plain greek yogurt, flaxseed, almond milk, and orange juice. I got a little excited & made a mess…

After, I showered and went to the grocery store to get what I needed for a delicious homemade spaghetti dinner. Here is the recipe I am following. I prefer the Healthy Harvest pasta over regular pasta, because it is whole grain and I always support healthier options. Dinner turned out delicious, Andy and I are so happy with the way it turned out.

I made some garlic and brie to eat while I watched the game today. Even though my boys lost tonight, I still stand by them. Yes it was rough, and I did have some tears in my eyes when we lost in overtime. BUT, I’m a huge 49ers fan and so proud that we made it this far. Next year baby…


All in all I had a great Sunday. No words can describe the smile on my face when my man showed up 2 hours early from work. We watched the game together and he comforted me after the loss. These are the kind of Sundays I have dreamed of… I hope you had a great Sunday as well. Despite the fact that it’s the day before the most dreaded day of the week it’s still the best in my eyes. Loves, smooches, and football chest bumps until next time. XOXO, Bee
