Ending the Year With a List

There are all kinds of lists this time of year (best ____ of 2015, etc.). I thought it might be helpful to share a few recipes that I enjoyed making this year. I don't always use recipes, and we often enjoy things like smoothies (or smoothie bowls), salads (or as some people call then 'nourish bowls' or 'power bowls', etc.), stir-fries, soup, pasta, or a taco/burrito type of meal. These are ones that I found, I created, or someone recommended to me; either way, they are ones that I either have or will continue to make again. You can see more of what I'm cooking up on my instagram feed or Pinterest boards. Some are more of a treat and others could be staples in your repertoire.

Overnight Chia Oats
*I'm not actually sure where I got/adapted the recipe from, but here it is:

1 ripe banana, mashed
2 Tbsp chia seed
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1tsp vanilla

Combine, cover, and refrigerate over night. Enjoy! Serves 2, feel free to add yogurt, fruit, nuts, etc. in the morning as well.

Happy cooking and Happy New Year!
