Wellness: A Healthy Breakfast
Wellness is a big priority for so many of us today and a trend that has accelerated in recent years. Through conversations with The Roundtree guests, many of whom have stayed with us more than once, we’ve found that they care about wellness and health as much as we do and are looking for any opportunity to incorporate these elements in their lives.
With that in mind, we’ve introduced dishes at breakfast that are designed to be good for you and are delicious to boot. They’ve been a hit with our guests, and we’d love to share the easy overnight oats recipe with you. Feel free to customize it with your favorite toppings- I personally love toasted pumpkin seeds, chopped walnuts and strawberries. The best part is that the oats keep for three days in the fridge so you have multiple mornings with tasty starts.
- 1/2 cup oats (old-fashioned or other oats that you prefer)
- 1/4 cup of dried fruit, such as dried strawberries, blueberries and apricot, cut into small pieces
- 1 tablespoon of chai, flax or poppy seeds, or a mix of them
'- 1 cup almond milk or oat milk (or if prefer, whole milk will work also)
- A pinch of kosher salt
- Honey to taste
- Add a tablespoon of raisins or dried cranberries (Optional)
- 2 tablespoons of chopped or sliced almond, macadamia or other nuts, toasted
1. Mix oats, dried fruit, seeds, milk and salt in a mason jar or a 2-cup airtight resealable container
2. Seal tightly and refrigerate for at least 5 hours, up to 2 days
3. Remove cover, stir well and taste. If you prefer more sweetness, stir in some sweetener. Top with nuts just before serving.
Note that the soaked oat mixture will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
