Props to the person who came up with the idea of overnight oats. An easy and great way to start your day. I had a quick scroll through the few breakfast recipes I have done so far for this blog. I noticed that they are all recipes involving eggs. Now don’t get me wrong, I love eggs for breakfast, I have them all the time. But there is plenty more out there when it comes to having a good breakfast. In case you don’t know, the idea of overnight oats is to prepare an oat mixture in advance so that they are ready for breakfast the next morning.
I didn’t just want to make this recipe so that people could wake up to a good tasting breakfast. I wanted to make a recipe that would give a great kick-start to peoples morning. But I have a question for you guys. So if you’re reading this, I ask that you answer this question in the comments section below if you have the time because I would really like to know about this. Do you know people that don’t usually have breakfast? Are you one of those people? I notice it all the time and I think “how?”. If I don’t have breakfast in the morning I will be super hangry (hungry and angry) throughout the day and I will eat like a horse at lunch. But I just wanted to know if I am the only one who sees this.
A couple of cool little updates before we move on to the recipe. First, some of you may know that I have been working on a collaboration with a group of other bloggers. I challenged them to create a recipe that involves the pulled pork I posted earlier on, and then publish it on their blogs. They have been doing such a fabulous job and I can’t wait to show you guys. So far, five bloggers have uploaded their recipes, and now there is just one (possibly 2 more) blogger left. I think it will be a very valuable post for you guys so stay tuned.
Also, me and my brother have started a new Instagram page together just for general photography. Landscapes, portraits, macro photography you name it. Ever since I started food photography I have expanded that passion and it has been an absolute blast to experiment with different kinds of photos. So feel free to check out our Instagram page @hortensedigital_hd if you are interested in that.
Thanks so much for reading through this post. Love you all and I hope you enjoy the recipe.
