Overnight Oats with Rachel’s Organic | Recipe

September 15, 2016

I never thought I’d be one to jump on the overnight oats trend. But here I am, about a year since it hit Pinterest, chatting overnight oats and my morning routine.

I was asked by Rachel’s Organic to share my morning tips with you all. So first up let’s just start here, I wasn’t a morning person at all until recently and I believe sticking to a few key things in the morning has helped me.

1- Prepare

Whether it’s making breakfast the night before (see my Overnight Oats recipe below) or just planning out your next day, preparation is key. Mr W and I have a joint calendar so we know if we’re both out or one of us is out the next day so meals are easily planned. I pack my bag every evening and sort out the kitchen so it’s easy to make lunch in the morning. I’ve also taken to making overnight oats because I don’t have to worry about much apart from making a morning cuppa when I wake up. Plus they’re super quick to make.

2- Stick to your alarm

Now I know this is getting harder now our mornings are getting darker. But not clicking snooze stops me from a) falling back asleep b) feeling like shit and c) being late for a train to work. Living in the sticks means if I miss my train I’d be very late to work so I have to get up.

3- Shower

Having a hot shower with a refreshing lemony shower gel gets me going in the morning. I tend to shower after waking up as it means I’m more awake for breakfast after. I save baths for relaxing Self Care Sundays instead. 

4- Don’t panic

If you can’t make lunch or run out of time to sort something, don’t panic. Do what you can but don’t stress, stress in the morning isn’t worth it and can set your day up all wrong. Adjust your alarm clock for the next day if you could do with more time to get things done.

Rachel’s Organic have recently released a range of morning yogurt pots with granola. These are useful for breakfasts on the go! They also have a wonderful range of Greek style yogurt- perfect for overnight oats. There’s also a low fat Caramel Latte yogurt (sadly I haven’t been able to find to try yet!) They also suggest using a Nutribullet smoothie maker to make yogurt based smoothies in the morning to help you get up-check out their recipes. This is something I most definitely need to try – my favourite smoothie recipe would definitely be improved with a blob of yogurt!

What’s your morning routine? Do you have any tips for me? Let me know in the comments,

    Lovely breakfast and this is a really nice easy recipe for anyone to start with! After all, it can take time to grate apple or squeeze oranges etc

      It’s such an easy to make brekkie- perfect for a rush. You could definitely tart it up if you did have time though πŸ™‚

    I’ve never tried overnight oats – but your recipes sounds/looks good! I’ve just bought Felicity Cloake’s ‘Perfect Too’ cookbook and her recipe for the perfect porridge involves toasting porridge and soaking in water overnight. My evening routine could get busy :-). x

      Haha it could! I tend to make mine whilst dinner is cooking πŸ™‚

    I love overnight oats and was also a late adopter of it! (Hey, they cool kids always arrive late to the party!)

    I’ve never tried it with muesli, just plain old rolled oats, so I’ll definitely give that a try πŸ™‚ thank you for the tip

    I also love adding some frozen berries to the mix. Blueberries give a lovely burst of fruity juiciness πŸ™‚

      It’s so tasty, there’s still a bit of sugar in it but it’s got protein too πŸ™‚
