Cloudbutter Jar

January 23, 2012

Another day of rain ahead.

Another jar dominated!

I was so tired last night I almost didn’t take the 60 seconds aside to make overnight oats, but as usual, I was very glad I did!!

I mixed together: 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tbsp chia seeds (which didn’t get stirred In well enough and were one big clump on the bottom of my jar!), blueberries and blackberries. Topped with Morning O’s and some Cville Cluster crumbs!

I’ve been *thinking* about making overnight oats every night for the past 5 or 6 nights, but then I don’t…and I regret it in the morning!! Now I’m jealous of yours! :-)

Well, our beautiful snow is being washed away in the downpour of this morning…so sad! I love the idea of breakfast in a jar of sunbutter…my mouth was watering at the photo of the bottom of your jar…yummy! Off to go bowling on my son’s field trip…a great indoor activity on a rainy day. Managed to squeeze in a speedy walk in the rain before I headed out…getting in my 30 minutes of activity a day! lol

I am now tempted to replace the word “body” with engine and “food” with fuel after your last statement! Maybe the male patients would like that version better! Ha

By the time I think about overnight oats lately I’m already upstairs in bed with the covers pulled up. The bed always wins out but then I’m so mad at myself in the morning when I could’ve walked down to breakfast already made!

Totally agree that the few minutes at night prepping breakfast is so much appreciated in the morning!!

Hey I love your blog. Especially your pictures!
Do you have any meal ideas for living in a college dorm?! I strive to eat healthy alll day, but I am getting bored with the granola bars/cereal breakfasts. I have a microwave,fridge,freezer, and sink to work with! I have always wanted to try oatmeal, but IDK how to make it

16 KathEats January 23, 2012 at 2:28 pm

thanks Lizzie!

If you have a fridge, you can make overnight oats! Here’s the how-to page – no cooking involved! http://www.katheats.com/favorite-foods/overnightoats

Coaches Oats work great in the microwave. Just found a big bag at Costco . . .

Overnight oats in an almost empty jar is the best breakfast ever. My last empty was a jar of Biscoff – heavenly. :)

Crunchy SunButter is my favorite!!

20 Cait's Plate January 23, 2012 at 9:29 am

I had the same exact breakfast! (Complete with the Sunbutter jar!). Minus the cheerios though because I had some peanut butter granola (extra clustery) just begging to be used.

DEFINITELY my favorite breakfast ever.

My motivation is at an all time high. Even though there is snow on the ground, bikini season will sneak up on me, and I want to be ready!

24 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 23, 2012 at 9:33 am

Haha I know how you feel, last night I knew I’d have ZERO time this morning to make breakfast (I only had 10 minutes to eat it!) so I forced myself to head back into the kitchen and mix up some overnight oats. Haha it seems like so much effort, but it really takes like 3 minutes!

25 Blessing @ Working Mom Journal January 23, 2012 at 9:40 am

Highly motivated this morning as well. I started my day with a quote by Micheal Jordan – ?”I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.”

Reply

26 Jen January 23, 2012 at 11:19 am

I like that quote. I just wonder if it means to keep putting in the work at my job…or towards what I’d really hope to do. ?

27 Jana @ Newly Wife Healthy Life January 23, 2012 at 9:44 am

I had overnight oats this morning too, and was of course very glad I took the time to make them last night. I have never tried sunbutter, but would like to!

I just started eating PB again after a long hiatus and cannot wait till we finish off the jar to make my first batch of overnight oats :D

I’m so happy I found your blog! I relate to your weight loss story, I love cooking healthy food, I love oatmeal, I love smoothies, and I love my vitamix! Tried some overnight oats (dont know why i never thought if that) and they were soooo yummy! Perfect for me to take to work since I go in at 5am and work 12 hours (I’m an ER nurse). Mixed it up the night before and threw it in my lunch cooler on the way out the door. Gave me energy to get through my shift. Have the day off today and so I’m getting ready to blend up my first dough boy smoothie. Yay!!!

Welcome! And so glad o.oats were a hit!

33 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning January 23, 2012 at 10:53 am

Yeah- I’m so incredibly jealous of that breakfast! It takes me forever to get to the bottom of my sunflower butter jar, because I have a habit of alternating between 10 different jars of various nut butters open at once in my fridge! I have resolved to finish all of them before buying a jar of anything else, but that is a LOT of nut butter…

34 Sneakers2Sandals January 23, 2012 at 11:00 am

I love the anticipation of getting to the bottom of a jar of PB!

35 Jen January 23, 2012 at 11:22 am

Kath have you ever tried making almond milk? I buy so much and it’s expensive. I’m intimidated by home process though and if it’s really that more cost effective?

Reply

36 KathEats January 23, 2012 at 2:29 pm

I haven’t.. I’m not much of a fan of almond milk

I just had justin’s dark chocolate pb oats in a jar. it was so good it made my whole day.

I totally meant to make overnight oats (well, something semi-over night oats-ish) last night, but completely forgot! Tonight I’ll try and remember a little harder ;)

I’ve been meaning to try to find someone that sells milk straight from the cow, which from what I understand is much better than the pasteurized milk that we get at the stores.

I would like to add some real milk to that jar there, it looks awesome.

I read a report about this lady that found a mcdonalds cheese burger under the seat of her car.. Apparently her kids tossed one under the seat. Anyway, the burger didn’t rot or decompose. I found it interesting so I’m running my own experiment of various fast food menu items, starting with mcdonalds. I’m in my second week with a happy meal as well as a Cheese burger meal.

Sorry about the mis-spelling, I meant http://www.FastFoodExperiment.com

It’s to see how long or if the food will actually spoil.

sunflower seed butter is the only nut/seed butter that I have not tried. I am not a huge fan of sunflower seeds, but I still would like to try it!

What is your favorite brand of sunflower seed butter?

51 KathEats January 23, 2012 at 5:39 pm

Trader Joe’s wins, but Sunbutter is really 95% as good if you don’t have a TJ’s

Reply

52 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 23, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Ha! I swear one of the reasons I don’t eat overnight oats that often is because I’m too lazy to make them at night! :P
