This Summer heat requires light meals. I’m leaning towards light breakfasts, light lunches and early dinner that requires no cooking. I am trying so hard to avoid the stove, the oven, and all other things that gives off any form of heat.
I don’t want to move because moving means sweating…………a lot.
My ideal day would consist of me inside the bedroom with the a/c turned on, lying on our bed that’s covered in fresh crisp sheets, and just basically be busy converting oxygen to carbon dioxide. Ahhh, that would be life, that would be the ideal day.
But in the real world, I don’t think I can do that. Turning the a/c in the bedroom for the whole day means having three kids : my daughter Ykaie and my two nieces Cyra and Cyvrine, with me inside the bedroom as well. I’d be blogging — well, semi-blogging — cause we’re going to watch Disney movies, and we’re gonna be playing with their toys. I’d be the customer ordering from their restaurant and they’d serve me pretend donuts and pretend brownies…..and we would not want to go out of the bedroom — EVER!
OF course, we’d go out eventually because we have to eat and like I said a while ago, I’m leaning towards light meals that requires simple or no cooking because of the heat.
This Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats is one of the easiest breakfast you can eat straight from the fridge. It’s no-cook and it’s deeeeeelicious! You just need oatmeal, milk, (any kind of milk you like), sweetener (sugar, honey, or agave), and any kind of fruit for flavor. You just have to mix it up and let it sit overnight in the fridge.The next day you get a nice bowl of flavorful oatmeal — it’s healthy too!
Thanks to my friend Rizza for the blueberries♥! I was just oggling at plump blueberries on facebook and next thing I know this was sent to my doorstep.
