Overnight Oats When You Can’t Cook

I’m in Maine for a week visiting family.  My parents bought a place in disrepair four years ago and they’ve spent a lot of time and energy renovating the place.  Virtually everything needed some TLC or outright replacement.  The last thing on their to-do list is the kitchen, and right now we’re making due without a stove, which makes cooking at home and hitting the old macros a bit of an adventure.  I have access to a grill (may not work), a toaster, and a microwave.

Anyway, over the last few weeks I’ve been getting back into overnight oats—which are convenient, don’t require cooking (just mix and put in the refrigerator overnight), and can be tailored to meet your energy needs.  It’s a perfect meal for #CampLife and flexible dieting.  The base recipe I’ve been using looks like this:

Base ingredients:

3/8 cup of almond milk, unsweetened

1/4 cup Greek yogurt, whole milk

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 scoop protein power

Pinch of salt

Pinch of sweetener

Variable ingredients:

Type of protein power



Yesterday I made four individual servings, each slightly different—two have EAS vanilla whey, two have EAS chocolate whey, and two have 15 grams of raisins.  With raisins is 45 carbs, 7 fat, 26 protein.  Without raisins is 33 carbs, 7 fat, 26 protein.  Any fruit you have is awesome diced up and added when you’re ready to eat.
