Overnight Oats

Hellooooo. For a while now I've been trying to make an infographic, something which, given my love for MS Paint, has been somewhat challenging. Today though, I decided to take the plunge and give it another shot. Realising that I'd be needing some slightly more... shall we say advanced software, I did a quick Google search, which brought me to Pixlr. When I first opened the app it struck me as something more user friendly than Inkscape but something that doesn't take nearly as long as Photoshop to get the hang of.

The app also has a bunch of video tutorials which were really handy. Back to the infographic. Using Pixlr it really didn't take me that long to make as the app made it really easy. Needless to say, it's definitely something I'll be trying out again!

So here it is, my amateurish infographic with a very poor choice of font colour at the bottom! Feel free to Pin it :)

With my excitement about the infographic I've gotten to the bottom of this post and realised I've forgotten to say anything about the oats! Overnight oats are something I've seen a lot all over Pinterest and Instagram and the idea of just having something to grab and go in the morning really appealed to me (sleep!). I was slightly hesitant about eating raw oats but now, after a few months of overnight oats a multiple times a week I'm hooked! Initially the taste was definitely something which took a bit of getting used to but I can now say, I think I prefer them to traditional porridge.

The great thing about these oats is that if it's a cold morning you can zap them in the microwave for 30 seconds and then they're even more delicious! 

You can also whip up a few jars of overnight oats at the start of the week, then have them throughout. Possibly even make some more for the second half of the week, it's a perfect time saver and way to get those extra five minutes of sleep!

A last quick note, you can use any kind of milk, I normally go for soy. You can also add to the mix you make up the night before. I usually go for chia 

So, if you haven't gathered, I'd highly recommend making yourself some overnight oats, at least try it!

I'd love to know what you think of the infographic and also if you'd like to see more of them?

Thanks for reading,
