Last night I decided to make overnight oats after seeing them on Peanut Butter Fingers, I had been looking for a recipe to use my new Chia seeds, as I know they are a “superfood” but wasn’t sure how to use them.
6oz Yogurt – I used greek style plain
2tbsp Chia Seeds
2/3 cup of oats
1/2 to 1 cup of milk (Depending on what consistency you like) – I used Almond milk
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and place in the fridge until morning for some lovely overnight oats.
I did add some more almond milk to make a slightly less thick consistency, and I added a tbsp of vanilla protein whey powder just before eating to up the protein level
There are so many variations of overnight oats, you can add absolutely anything, examples are:
- Peanut butter
- Fruit – Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
The possibilities are endless 🙂
Today’s workout was the start of week 3 of Livefit, which is the start of the muscle-building part of the 12 week training program, and the training sessions increase to 5 times per week instead of 4 times – yikes! Also the reps have decreased to 10 instead of 12 so to increase the weight’s per exercise.
Leg Extension: 3 sets of 10 reps
Wide Stance Barbell Squat: 3 sets of 10 reps
Walking Barbell Lunge: 3 sets of 10 reps
Single-Leg Barbell Deadlift: 3 sets of 10 reps
