I’ve been trying to come up with new food ideas for lunch to take to work each week. I always like to switch it up and have something different. This time (and since we are mid-winter), I decided to pull out my old friend, the crockpot, to make this delicious and tender chicken tikka masala.
It’s another one of my overnight crock pot steel-cut oats series! I always try to switch up my oatmeals each week. There was one week I decided to be creative and use beetroot and blueberries for a delicious pink(ish) oatmeal. This one might take a bit more work to prepare, but it really is worth it!
I do love carrot cake. As I already mentioned in my carrot cake smoothie recipe, it reminds me of my childhood. I’ve been trying to come up with different recipes for my overnight crock pot oats so that I change it up each week for my breakfasts. Continue reading Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake Oats
Remember my recipe of the overnight steel-cut oats cooked in a crock pot? I love oatmeal, but I always find it takes a while to cook it in the morning before heading off to school or work.

Because they keep well in the fridge, you can make a whole week’s batch and store them in individual servings so you can grab and go. Plus you can add extra milk or other toppings if you want!

I have to say that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It really jump starts your metabolism after a night’s rest, and helps provide the energy boost to last you until lunch time and stabilize those simple sugars you’ll ingest in later meals. Have you gotten into the habit of not eating a proper breakfast because you’re in a rush and can’t bother to wake up early or spend time making a healthy breakfast? Do you opt for things like granola bars or a McMuffin to go or just skipping it altogether? I know I’ve had my fair share!
