Ahh, mornings. Some people love them and consider themselves to be “morning people,” waking up with a smile on their face, but it seems as though a larger number of individuals would rather hit snooze over and over again than get their day started.

If you consider yourself the latter, you need to add overnight oats into your routine! They take just a few minutes to prepare the night before, and are packed full of healthy carbs, nutrients, and cholesterol fighters to help aid your heart health.

Overnight oats are super versatile, and can be combined with an endless number of ingredients and toppings to cater to any palate. Take a look at these 10 tasty overnight oats recipes from Personal Creations that are sure to get your day started on a positive note!

Thankful Thursday: Savoury Thanksgiving Pie (Vegetarian) ~ Jody Karen

Just a bit of “housekeeping” before I get on with today’s Thankful Thursday article.  I will be taking the next two weeks off from posting, for two reasons.

  • Next week Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the USA.  I’ll be taking time off to prepare my big meal and spend time with my family
  • I’m at the end of my current class at school. I need some extra time to finish up my final assignment, take my final written exam and study for my oral exam.

So this will be the final main post

until Monday December 4, 2017.

Enjoy today’s article,

and

I’ll see you all in December!

Now, on to the main article.


Today’s Thankful Thursday article is from Jody at JodyKaren.com. Jody, originally from Canada, is a student at the University of St. Andrews in Scotand.  Jody blogs about delicious vegetarian recipes, as well as her journey to wellness. Here is a bit about Jody, in her own words:

“… I started this crazy adventure by hopping on a plane from Canada to Scotland. Although I miss maple syrup and the mountains, I’m enjoying the Scottish lifestyle of highland cows, afternoon tea, and windy beach walks.

When I moved to Scotland, I started to get into fitness and veggie cooking. I decided to start this blog to document my wellness journey, and to inspire others to be healthy while maintaining that #studentlifestyle (tequila is healthy, right?).” 

Since next week is Thanksgiving, I wanted to share this delightful Thanksgiving pie recipe. This would be a great addition and fun twist to any Thanksgiving table.

Thank you so much Jody,

for following me over this past year.

I truly appreciate having you as a part of

The Purple Almond team.

Thankful Thursday: Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats – Kitchen with Keri

Thankful Thursday has fast become one of my favorite posts to write, because I get to highlight one of my extremely talented followers, and fellow bloggers.

For today’s edition of Thankful Thursday, I’m highlighting Keri from Kitchen with Keri: Adventures of a Home Cook.

Keri, who started out as a “reluctant” cook, discovered a love of experimenting in the kitchen. Here is a description in her own words:

“I’m not quite sure how to describe the type of home cook that I am.  I’m by no stretch a proper “homestead” -er, but I have successfully made several batches of my own yogurt!  I’m not a baker, I’m much more imprecise than that.  I’ve toyed with the idea of making my own cheese, and I finally canned my own jam!”

Keri has a terrific site with lots of wonderful recipes, and beautiful food photos. However, probably my favorite part of her site, are her “Adventure” articles, in which she describes her cooking experiments, including everything from eating healthy while cruising, to making sauerkraut, almond milk and yogurt.

One of Keri’s adventure articles that caught my attention was: Adventure: Flour, in which she talks about grinding her own flour and making proper sourdough bread. Despite being gluten free, I have been wanting to grind my own flour for a while for my family, so this really grabbed me.

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

In our society of “convenience foods”, I am a firm believer in overnight oats. They are SO easy to make and super healthy. I make them regularly for my family, and am always looking for new ways to prepare them. These look amazing and couldn’t be easier to prepare. It literally takes just minutes and saves tons of time in the morning.

For the complete Overnight Oats recipe, you’ll have to head over to Keri’s site, so, follow this link:

10 Savory Oatmeal Recipes

Oatmeal is an all time classic breakfast food. It’s a wonderful and healthy whole food carbohydrate, high in fiber, and helps curb appetite…not to mention it’s very easy to prepare. Most of the time, however, we think of it as a sweet food, with fruit, nuts, sugar, syrup and honey.

If you think you’ve seen everything in regards to oatmeal, you haven’t seen savory oatmeal. What about oatmeal with poached eggs and hollandaise or oatmeal egg bake with bacon and maple?  Here are 10 new ways to approach this hearty classic breakfast food.

ENJOY! AND BON APPETIT!!
