Banana, Blueberry and Chia Overnight Oats!

Buenos Dias! 🙂

Before I begin on this delicious recipe, I have been meaning to try these Overnight Oats for quite some time! I waited until I bought all the ingredients

(I have Coach’s oats delivered from amazon but in the apartment complex where I live the clubhouse closes super early Sunday night and I didn’t have time to pick up my package 😦 but I made it work)

I found this recipe and the whole concept from HealthyHitsTheSpot Her blog is wonderful! Go check her out 🙂

Strawberry & Lime Water

Hello everyone! 🙂

20120323-013701.jpg

I’ve had such a terrible week! School is so stressful, I’ve had exams back to back and next week is no better.

I haven’t been checking in or following TIU! 😦 No worries though tomorrow morning I get back on track!

I decided to add some fresh fruit to my water (overnight) to see if it spices it up. I love plain water but sometimes you want to overturn and put new spins on routine.

I added into my Strawberry-Lime Water:

-2 slices of lime (cut them in wedges)
-4 strawberries (cut in halves)
-32oz of water (I made this in my water bobble)

So easy, refreshing, yummy and satisfying. You should drink half of your body weight in water and why not spice it up and try adding fruits? 🙂
