[HEALTHY RECIPE] BREAKFAST: OVERNIGHT OATS

Hi loves!

I've been embarking on a healthier diet for the past 2 weeks and I've decided to share my journey and tips for you fitness and health junkies!

The "New Year, New Me" syndrome has been quite effective and also the fact that I'm actually seeing results have kept me pretty much on track so far.

I have been having breakouts for the past few months and I hope by the end of February, my skin would be completely cleared. I can already see results so I'm pretty pumped up!

Anywayyy, let's start with breakfast!

So recently I've been making my own overnight oats. Previously, my breakfast consisted of either nasi lemak, thick milo + biscuits or simply nothing at all. Not surprisingly, my skin suffered. I did some research on ideas for really hearty yet healthy and simple breakfast and overnight oats is up there on my list.

It's so easy to make and so good. Here's the recipe for a basic overnight oat variant:

Overnight Oats


  • 4 tbsps of rolled oats
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • Unsweetened soy milk


Mix them altogether in a mason jar and leave it in the fridge overnight. And ta-dah! Your very own jar of goodness in the morning.

I usually prefer to eat a lot in the morning because... well, because I can. So rolled oats is a good source of energy and keeps me satisfied until lunch.

I switch between milk + greek yogurt and unsweetened soy milk. I prefer unsweetened soy milk rather than cow's milk because its dairy-free. But it is more expensive so I alternate between them. I think one of the most important things to cut out from my diet (at least for now) is dairy food because anything dairy-based tends to cause acne.

Also, chia seeds are really something new I've been incorporating because it has so many goodness. It's a super food. It's a beast.

Grocery list:



So above is typically the ingredients you should buy for a basic variant of overnight oats. I forgot to include honey in the picture but yeah, buy honey. Later on, you can build up on the above and get fancy with other stuff like peanut butter.

Basically the only stuff you would need to replenish weekly is the milk/soymilk/greek yogurt. Other than that, the rest can last you a pretty long time. And because its so easy to make, I have been making overnight oats for at least 3 out of 5 days a work week.

If you like, you can shred some dark chocolates into your overnight oats or add some blueberries or slices of banana for that finishing touch.

So that's it for today. I hope you guys give it a try because I feel having a good, healthy breakfast is a great way to start a day :)
