This has been a year of learning to eat healthy and making lifestyle changes. As a result of eating better coupled with exercising, I've lost over 40 pounds! One of the changes I've made is incorporating oatmeal more into my diet, as well as many other things! (Lots of plant based foods, more greens and fruit, less sugar and white flour.) While I don't eat a strictly vegetarian or vegan diet, I've been using many more vegatarian recipes. When learnig about Kathy Hester's new book of vegan recipes, OATrageous, I was really excited at having the chance to preview it and share info about it.
Kathy Hester has recipes to show you oats in a whole new light. Think Italian Veggie and Oat Sausage, Veggie Oat Tacos and Oat Pizza Crust Topped with vegan sausage crumbles made from Steel-cut oats. But don’t worry she includes new takes on traditional favorites like Banana Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes and Strawberries and Cream Overnight Refrigerator Oats too. From now on it’s Exciting Oats for Every Meal!
I have to say I wasn't keen on the idea of refrigerator oats at first, but now I'm hooked! I do modify Kathy's recipes in that I do use a dairy based yogurt, usually a fat free greek plain yogurt, but other than that I stick to her recipe. I love her recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats! So yummy! Pictured below, this non-yogurt based recipe, Blackberry Mojito Over-Night Refrigerator Oats is amazing! (I leave out the rum!) The picture alone is beautiful!
