Strawberries’N Cream Overnight Oats

It’s official, I am now the MindFull Kitchen!! I’m sorry to those who liked the old {veegan}ista, I did too and it was fun while it lasted, but I think this is a step in the right direction for expansion and future business ideas. I want to thank everyone who has been supporting me along the way and encouraging me through these changes. I have lots of great recipes up my sleeve that I cannot wait to share! 🙂

This is the second recipe of my Valentine’s Day line-up! I decided I didn’t want to overload you guys with too many sweets and desserts so I have a few breakfast recipes that I think are perfect for the occasion. I am a HUGE fan of oatmeal and I get so excited when I come up with different combinations. Especially when they’re ideas for overnight oats! With overnight oats there are no excuses for laziness or not having time… This recipe will maybe take 7 minutes MAX. Stick the jar in the fridge, leave it overnight, wake up and roll out of bed, grab jar, and out the door you go! So easy!

Strawberry Facts 

-Did you know that strawberries are great for arthritis pain?? They contain phenols which are anti-inflammatory and reduce the activity of the cyclooxyrgenase enzyme (COX), which is often the cause of inflammation.
