I love me a cheesy eggy spicy bowl of savory oats 🤤
This is a go-to weekend breakfast over here, it's so tasty & versitile... I always improvise with what's already in the fridge.
Today's bowl was made up of:
1 cup Old fashioned oats
Enough Unsweetened soy milk to cover the oats
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp fired basil
1 tbsp olive oil
--- cook all the above ingredients over medium heat in a small pot, stirring until the oats have absorbed most of the liquid. Then, add:
A handful of montgomery jack cheese
A handful of spinach
--- fold everything together and cook until the liquid is absorbed, then stranger to 2 bowls. Top each bowl with:
Soft boiled eggs
Radish slices
Green onions
Crushed red pepper flakes
Everything bagel seasoning

Coconut dark chocolate banana bitesssss 🍌🍫🥥🍌🍫🥥🍌
Made a whole bunch of these to snack on today. 🙃 They make such a great after-dinner treat, when you're craving something a little bit sweet.
Real treats made from real food!
To make these~ slice up a banana, lay them out on a plate & stick a tooth pick into each. Freeze for a few hours.
Using a double boiler, melt a bar of @eatingevolved dark chocolate & put a cup of shredded unsweetened coconut into a bowl.
Once the chocolate is just melted, take out the bananas from the freezer & grab each using the toothpick. Dip it into the melted chocolate (shaking off any dripping chocolate), then grab a big pinch of shredded coconut & sprinkle it all around the wet chocolate. Let the chocolate dry before setting it down.
I got crafty & created a drying station using paper & a cooling rack (as seen in my stories today). I used an extra toothpick to punch holes into a thick piece of paper and laid that on top of a cooling rack, then put the toothpick from each banana bite into the pre-punched hole.

This coconut butternut squash miso soup is my best friend right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been on a soup kick this winter.. it's really the only thing I crave after a full day of skiing. Nothing sounds better than cuddling up with this bowl and a toasted slice of rye bread.
This soup is so full of flavor and warmth with hints of asian influence. Plus, it's super easy to make .. 30 minutes + 1 large pot + an immersion blender + these ingredients:
4 cups bone broth (or veggie / chicken broth)
4 cup butternut squash - diced
2 cups cauliflower florets
1 small red onion - cut into large chunks
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 can light coconut milk
2 tbsp white miso
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp salt
--- to make it, add the broth, squash, cauliflower and onion to a pot over high heat. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then simmer for 15 min (or until the squash is cooked though). Stir in the remaining ingredients & cook for another 10 minutes. Blend it all together with an immersion blender & serve with green onions and sesame seeds!
