I’m trying to variate a little bit with my breakfast lately, and these overnight oats seems to be the hit in America, so I thought why not try it out! Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for everyone who doesn’t have the time to make breakfast in the morning.
It’s pretty simple actually and you can vary as much as you like. You make your oats in the evening, put them in the fridge and in the morning you can eat them or take them to work (or uni in my case). You can put all different kinds of things in it. In this case I made it with oats, yoghurt, chiaseed and blueberries. Quite simple, but you can make it as crazy as you like. With yoghurt it’s quite thick so you can try it with milk or water. Pinterest is a great way to look for variations. Add some fruit in the morning and you’re done!
If there’s something you can wake me up for it’s definitely a good breakfast. And I really like oats. My roommates were laughing about it yesterday as I was having a late night ‘snack’ of oatmeal, which I really enjoyed. They considered a snack to be more in the category of chips and cookies. And however I already ate my oatmeal yesterday evening, this morning I enjoyed it just the same. So I thought I’d share my breakfast with you!
This is my number one favourite oatmeal at the moment: oats in unsweetened soyamilk with blueberries, chocolate and coconut rasp. Super delicious!

Last week was my week without bread and this is the result:
Breakfast day 1: Greek yoghurt with chiaseeds, blackberries, nuts and coconut rasp
Lunch day 2: Spinach, sweet paprika, quinoa, cherry tomatoes, cottage cheese, cumin
Breakfast day 3: Oatmeal made with almond milk, blackberries and raspberries, coconut rasp. Smoothie of banana and summer fruit with chiaseeds
Lunch day 3: same as day 2 but without cottage cheese and with an egg
Breakfast day 4: Oatmeal again, with apple, nuts and cinnamon
Lunch day 4: Rucola with an egg with mushrooms
Breakfast day 5: Greek yoghurt with banana, summer fruit, chia seeds and coconut rasp
But… after day 5 it stopped. I couldn’t complete the whole seven days as I was babysitting my little niece so I slept at my sisters place and when we had lunch I couldn’t resist the bread! Their bread from the bakery is SO good!
Well, besides my early stop I think this week went pretty well. Especially the breakfasts, it was no problem changing my daily breakfast bread into something new. The lunch however was not that easy and I’m still struggling with that. I find it really difficult to find something to bring along with you during lunchtime! This week, I was at home most of the time but it costs me so much time to prepare lunch! I study a lot in the library so I’m looking for a great lunch which I can take with me. Do you have any suggestions? Would love to hear them!
I love weekends. They are filled with parties, great food and the best Sunday breakfasts. We ate pancakes yesterday with blueberries (and sirop and sugar and chocolate), the best way to begin a Sunday. So here are a few photos of our food, just to make this Monday a little bit better.
ps. Today, I bought the canon 28mm f1.8 lens and I am so excited about it! In two weeks I’m going to Paris so I hope to bring it with me and make some nice shots.
