• 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!

    •  One sick kid, one heat wave, one million ants in our laundry room... You win Monday. Sometimes you just gotta put the work away, or step away from the piles of laundry, and get outside for a reset. Or look at photos of bougainvillea from when you could get outside  #wavingthewhiteflagtoday #tomorrowisanewday  Summer. Heat wave. Mandatory. #calvinsfirstcone #calvins2ndyear
       When your shades and your shirt are meant to be  #charlesdashiell  On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies
