I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about the importance of being prepared lately. It’s probably because that has been the name of the game for me lately. Right now, in “Big Fish” land, we are in what we call tech rehearsal. These rehearsals are when all of the elements of the show come together. Light, sound, costumes, sets, wigs and special effects all begin to introduce themselves to the show, thus creating the big and final picture. It is incredibly exciting to see all of these gorgeous aspects come to life, but there is a down side. It is really time-consuming. We are at the theatre for 10 out hours out of a 12 hour work day- Monday through Saturday. I’m not complaining… I have an AMAZING job and I feel soooo lucky, but it’s a lot.
My regime as of late has been:
Wake up by 7:45. Take an early work out class. Run any errands that need to be run. Head to the theatre!
I don’t have a ton of time to myself, and therefore, I try to make my food ahead of time!
I am in love with Overnight Oats. I love chewy and sweet they taste. I love that I can eat them out of a mason jar. Mostly, I love that they are sitting in my fridge, just waiting for me to grab and eat them!!!!
I wanted to share one of my favorite overnight oat recipes. It is ridiculously yummy :)
Peaches and Cream Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup Instant rolled oats (I use gluten-free)
- 1/4 cup milk of choice
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 TBS greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp chia seeds
- 2 packets stevia
- 1 whole peach chopped
- 1/2 banana sliced
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- dash of cinnamon
In a bowl, combine oats, milk, water, chia seeds, stevia, vanilla and cinnamon. Microwave for about 2 minutes (keep an eye out that it doesn’t spill over!!)** Transfer the mixture to a mason jar. Add peach, banana, and greek yogurt. Make sure that everything is mixed together. Put it in the fridge over night and THERE YOU GO!!!
**In order to prevent the oatmeal from spilling over the bowl: Simply open the microwave door every 10 seconds (about). If you watch the oatmeal cook, you will see it rising. Whenever it looks like it is getting close to the top, open the door!!!! Repeat this until the oatmeal is cooked :)
I like to enjoy my overnight oats cold, but you can definitely reheat them when you are ready to eat.
