Oh heyyyyyy. Guess who took a break from her 100+ day blogging streak?! This girl. I needed a break, I have been loving blogging and I’ve been scared to stop because I don’t want to go back to the days where I never posted, however, this weekend, I needed a break, and sometimes you have to listen to your body/mind and give it what it needs.
Not only did I need a break but I got to thinking that if I keep posting every dang day, you may get behind and feel like you can’t catch up, so instead I’m going to slow my roll (just not stop this time) to more like 3-5 post per week instead of 7. That way you still get ALL.THE.CONTENT. and I can get more sleep and more time off the computer, which is what I preach to my clients anyway, so time to practice what I preach.
I also wanted to take some time to brainstorm what content would be best for you guys and for what it is that I want to be known for. Here’s what I came up with:
- Easy & healthy recipes (i.e. 5 ingredients or less, sheet pan, Instant Pot, air fryer, etc.)
- Fitness & sports related nutrition topics (i.e. do you need
- General nutrition & wellness information
- Fad diet breakdown
- Meal planning & prepping help/tips
However, I would love input always in what you have questions on and what you need help with. That will give me a better idea of what else I can provide you this year!
Overnight Oat Party
Alrighty that all being said, I have a whole bunch of recipes to bring you guys this week and next (and hopefully for weeks to come). I’m always whipping up something new in the kitchen because cooking is my creative outlet. I’m pretty terrible at drawing and arts & crafts, but when it comes to food, I love figuring out new combinations to make delicious and healthy combinations. I know I’ve given you a ton of overnight oat recipes, but I feel like you can never have too many.
Overnight oats are slowly becoming my favorite breakfast because otherwise I either forget to eat breakfast or I wait too long to do so. Having these ready can help me make sure that I eat and make me feel so much more energized during the day. Overnight oats are super simple and after you make them a few times you’ll be able to eyeball how much liquid to oats you need to ensure the perfect texture of overnight oats which is creamy, smooth and not the lest bit soupy.
Easy Meal Prep
Speaking of easy. I work with a ton of clients who want to meal prep but often don’t know where to begin because it can be so overwhelming. Start with overnight oats, I’m not kidding. You can make 1, 2, 3 or 10 overnight oat jars for the week for yourself and your family and you’ll feel so fancy and accomplished when you do.
Stop making meal prep hard.
Work smarter not harder in the kitchen by reducing the number of ingredients you need and the amount of steps it takes to make said food. Overnight oats requires the ability to assemble the food and dump it into a jar. I’m going to guess you can handle that 😉
Peanut Butter & Jelly (PB&J) Overnight Oats
I actually decided I needed to make a peanut butter & jelly overnight oats recipe back when I posted the peanut butter & jelly Swapples recipe. I was like WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THIS SOONER. There needs to be more non-conventional peanut butter & jelly options in this world, as it might be one of my favorite combos of all time. I’ve made this recipe for the last 2 weeks and am convinced I’m going to keep make it until the pb&j runs out.
The great thing with this recipe is that don’t need any sweetener because the jelly acts as the sweetener. I used a conserve I picked up on sale at Whole Foods the other week but feel free to use any of your favorite jellies, jams, or conserves. As for the peanut butter, make sure it’s unsweetened and feel free to swap in any other nut/seed butter as you should be able to use anything you have on hand.
Pro Tip: make as many as you need for the week just multiply the ingredients and make in separate jars. I use these jars.Print

[…] good news is that the PB&J Overnight Oats have been a HUGE hit and I have plenty of content from my 100 day challenge so it gave people time […]
[…] Anyway, in this context, we are talking about gains to improve your breakfast. We often get stuck in a rut with our meals. It doesn’t mean that we have to be stuck in it forever. I had been stuck on an overnight oat kick for a while and just recently as the seasons started to change (yes it went from winter to summer here overnight) I was no longer craving the PB& J overnight oats.
