1. I love the taste of it (even though sometimes it may not be the healthiest thing in the world, i.e. cheese, chocolate...)
2. Maybe I'm not crazy about the flavor but it's healthy, therefore I like it. I guess that has something to do with the subconscious... I feel so good after eating healthy food.
The recipes I'm about to share with you meet not one but both of those requirements: they are tasty and healthy.
Another advantage is that you can use your favorite fruit or nuts and mix them in any way you want. There's no right or wrong. They are very easy to make, all you have to do is start with the base recipe below and then add any ingredients you fancy. I've given you 3 options: apple, pumpkin and berries.
Pumpkin is my favorite because it's like pumpkin pie in a jar!
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup milk (any type: almond, soy...)
1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 fair pinch salt
1 - 3 tsp honey
Add oats, milk, yogurt, salt and honey to a 16 oz. (500ml) jar or bowl (I used jam jars). Then add the rest of the ingredients listed below depending on the flavor you want (don't add toppings until the next day). Stir, cover and refrigerate overnight.
1/2 cup chopped sweet apples
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp chopped pecans, for topping
1/3 cup pumpkin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp dried cranberries, for topping
1 tbsp raw unsalted pumpkin seeds, for topping
1/2 cup fresh berries such as strawberries (chopped), blueberries or raspberries
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
