Eating On Track This Week - no, not really...

Comments - The election really stressed me out. I am scared for America. But, on the other hand, he has been elected President and I will respect and support that.

So, after about 2 weeks of owning it, I have lost my Misfit Flash Link... I knew it was only a matter of time as it just clips to waistband. But, sadness anyway. Guess I have to go back to my FitBit Charge HR... at least the Misfit Flash Link was only $15.

Overnight Oats have become an obsession, I am always on the lookout for a new recipe. The Mocha ones I made were not the best, may just need to have a tweak or two. But the PB&J ones are my fave, and the new one (see below) is a close second... really need to try the Carrot Cake ones, and the Apple Cinnamon ones, and the Pumpkin Pie ones, and the... you get the point!!



Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats...
(adapted from She Well)

1/3 cup oats (not instant)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp peanut butter powder
1/2 cup almond milk
couple of drops liquid stevia
1/2 banana, diced
mini chocolate chips

Place the oats in a jar, add the chia and hemp seeds and peanut butter powder. Shake to combine. Pour the almond milk in the jar and add a couple of drops of liquid stevia (I use the Vanilla Creme flavored Sweet Leaf). Place banana and chocolate chips on top. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight or for at least a couple of hours. Stir and enjoy, yum!!!!
