Blueberry Coconut Overnight Oats

Hey y’all! 

This semester, my goal is to make more healthy breakfasts and to not just settle for cereal and almond milk. Not only do overnight oats have WAY more nutrients than most cereal, they are packed with protein to keep you full all day (perfect for a long day of classes)! Here I’ll be giving yall one of my  favorite overnight oat recipes These overnight oats are rich, creamy, and filled with fresh fruit. It’s truly like eating dessert for breakfast! And, better yet, there’s no prep time! Just mix them up the night before (this takes 5 minutes) and store them in easy grab-n-go airtight containers for easy breakfasts throughout the week. You can eat these cold & straight from the jar, or heat them up for a nice warm breakfast. Enjoy!

Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Hey y’all!

With spring on the way, fresh food has been sounding so good. I wanted to share with you my absolute favorite smoothie recipe. This smoothie has about 12 grams of protein and is under 300 calories! For all of you who don’t like kale: I promise you can hardly taste it, and kale adds such great nutrients! This smoothie takes only 5 minutes and is a perfect on-the-go breakfast. Smoothies are really hit-or-miss for me; sometimes I like them, sometimes I don’t. Despite that, this smoothie never disappoints! I hope yall love it as much as I do.

This vinaigrette has just the right amount of sweetness to curb the flavor of the vinegar and lemon and takes about 2 minutes to make. You can use this dressing on just about any salad you can imagine, but goes so well with my Kale & Broccoli salad (aka my latest obsession).
