Banana Overnight Oats

A lot of things have been weighing on my mind lately. Whether it’s trying to go back to work with these obnoxiously large additions to my chest, my desire to blog more often, packing, and figuring out my ‘end game’, everything is confusing me. It’s like a bunch of elves are working up all sorts of thoughts and ideas in my head but nothing is ever finished and therefore it’s a mess! My mother’s solution is always to ‘write everything down’ so here I am, writing.

Modeling isn’t exactly a good career to ‘find yourself’ in and therefore when you’re done you end up sitting and thinking, ‘fudge… what do I do now!’ However, it’s not just models. How many people know exactly where they’re going and exactly how they’re going to get there?

I learned an important lesson today which is that your obstacle’s in life change who you are and therefore they change your plan. Why am I constantly trying to fit into the tiny mold of what a model is, a mother is, or a wife is? Why not do things my way and squash the thoughts in my brain that constantly tell me… no, don’t do that, don’t say that, don’t be that.

Being a mom is single handedly the BEST thing I’ve ever done. It has convinced me that women are meant to be moms… or at least, I am meant to be a mom. It’s so cliche and I never understood why or how people could say these things before but it really is the truth. I want to teach my daughter to be herself and to maintain her sweet exuberance for life. To be honest and not fear what people are going to think or say because, honestly, anything that means something will always be controversial.

This is one of my favorite breakfasts, it’s quick, easy, and has only five ingredients. I make this after my daughter goes to bed and it makes enough for at least 2 breakfasts for the week. Here I used frozen blueberries and slivered almonds to top it off. 

Remember, What we eat effects our mind and our mind effects our spirit. Put good things into your body from the start.

    1. I bought a container of chia seeds today for the first time. Your recipes have inspired me to try something new.

    3. Love your blog! Lots of yum, healthy recipes I can’t wait to try! Can you make the overnight oatmeal with quick oats? Or just the old fashioned oats?

      1. Hi Ashley, thank you! You can make it with the instant oats as well, I’ve done it when I’m shorter on time! Add 1/4 cup more milk though!
