• Soaked Oats Recipe + Food to Love

    soaked oats recipe | lovely ever after

    Happy Friday, and welcome to our first official Lovely Ever After post!  In case you missed the announcement, Oh Lovely Day is starting a weekly series called Lovely Ever After.  Inspired by my post-wedding days, especially my time as a mother, I want to share inspiration and tips for newlyweds, nesting, entertaining, and all things baby.  A lot of focus will be put on practical tips and real stories from myself and other mothers, and I’ll be asking my momma friends and favorite mom bloggers to help out as well.  I’ll definitely be sharing my story and what I’ve learned along the way, including my struggle with postpartum depression, nursing, sleep training, feeding a picky toddler, and many other things that I wish I had heard someone else talk about while I was going through it myself.  But today my friend Rachelle of Wiley Valentine is sharing a favorite healthy recipe with us that is sure to please even the pickiest eaters in your family.  Rachelle writes a regular Mom Monday series that I love and also recently started Food to Love, an empowering workshop giving parents the knowledge and tools to feed their families with love.  Since I’ve struggled with a picky toddler myself, this post is especially helpful for parents like me.  Take it away, Rachelle! 

    soaked oats recipe | lovely ever after I am delighted to be sharing this family favorite recipe with Oh Lovely Day readers today. It’s something that only takes a few minutes to make, it’s healthy, easy, and your whole family will LOVE it!

    soaked oats in a jar | lovely ever after Gathering all of the ingredients listed above, place all but the milk in the jar and stir. Cover with milk and stir again. Place the lid on the jar and refridgerate for around 12 hours. Make ahead the night before. In the morning top with fresh fruit and enjoy!

    Doesn’t this sound delish!?  And the best part is it is healthy too.  It always makes me feel good to when I make something healthy for my family that they also love to eat.  I plan to try this over the weekend.  If you do as well please share :)  And thanks again Rachelle for the yummy recipe.

    And for those of you in the Southern California area:  The Food To Love Workshop is an afternoon of hands-on demonstrations, shared knowledge of healthy eating habits, and an open forum for discussion and questions. We seek to empower parents with the importance of feeding their families good, healthy, homemade, organic foods. We’ll also cover topics such as using organic and natural household products and how to make it fun for the whole family!  If you’d like to buy tickets to attend the Food to Love Workshop (I’ll be there!) you can go here.

    PS- Don’t forget to enter our current giveaway, which ends tomorrow!

       Getting our morning exercise in at @lacma. Calvin loves to walk the lights. If you missed my post on the blog about it last week, Urban Light is a great place to take your little walkers -- it's clean and empty before #lacma opens. LACMA is probably my favorite spot in the city to take littles of all ages -- lots to do and very well maintained (which is important when you have a kid that likes to pick up and put everything in his mouth). Head to my blog and search LACMA to see more. #OLDsfaveplacesinLA // outfit note: both the romper (summer) and cardi (fall) are from @juneandjanuary and I just got my order from the fall line and everything is darling. I love the soft material, the heathered styles for fall/winter, and the side snap tees, hooded rompers, and October hats are  I just wish I would have ordered more of the pants for Calvin and baby 3. Staple pieces that can be layered and worn for a long time. #whatcalvinwears #juneandjanuary #freshlypicked #calvins2ndyear
       Since I couldn't attend #nybridalweek in person this season, I'll be sharing and regraming some of my favorite looks throughout the week. Love the style of this veil and big bouquet paired with a sweetheart neckline and a bare neck from the @annebargebride show.
