A healthy lifestyle can be as sweet as candy!

Childhood Favorites

Nostalgia. It’s always been such a weird feeling to me; one that is almost mysterious and hard to describe. It can be fleeting and long term, serious and humorous, painful and joyous. It’s a melting pot of emotions that comes together in the pit of your stomach and the depths of your heart and makes you want to melt away, right back into your past. So many instances in adult life serve as a reminder  that life is, and never will be, as simple as it was. One thing I love about food though, is its magical ability to transport you. Whether it be to a foreign land, through foreign foods, or even your own past, through the foods you once enjoyed. To me, nothing screams childhood more than a good old PB&J. For those times you are feelin the nostalgia, and want to reach for a comforting and healthy taste of home, try out these PB(2)&J oats. They will make you feel like a kid in a (fit)Candy store.

PB(2)&J Overnight Oats

1/3cup rolled oats

1/3 almond milk

1 tbsp 0% Greek yogurt

1 tbsp PB2

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Mix all the ingredients in a jar until combined and let sit in the fridge overnight.

Strawberry and Blueberry Jam

8 strawberries, hulled

1/4 cub blueberries

In the morning, place a saucepan over medium heat and add fruit. Stir until the fruits break down and turn jam-like. Add the jam to the oats, I added about half of the jam mixture. Stir the oats, top with agave nectar, and fruit of choice and enjoy!
