Helthy Summer Breakfast: Overnight Soaked Oats

Oats are great for breakfast and snacking.  Soaking them overnight makes them much easier to digest and their nutrients are better absorbed by your body.

To prepare them just mix in a mason jar 5 table spoons of organic old-fashioned oats, a pinch of cinnamon, few drops of vanilla extract, 1 tbsp of chia seeds, and 1 cup of almond milk. You can sweeten it with stevia, maple syrup, coconut crystals, or lucuma powder. To finish, just top with berries.  Close the lid and place it in the fridge.  Keeps fresh for 3-5 days.


Increase Your Milk Supply with Milky!

As a new mom determined to exclusively breastfeed your baby, you know how important it is to maintain a good milk supply.  Thankfully, it is possible to increment  your milk production with herbal supplements.  The most popular herbs are Fenugreek, Brewers Yeast, Blessed Thistle, and  Red Raspberry. You may take these as capsules or even as teas.

Now there is one lactation-enhancing herbal tea in the market that I love.  It’s called Milky! Milky was launched by sisters and actresses Tia and Tamera, and it claims not only to boost your breast milk but to enhance its quality.  You are supposed to drink two 2.5oz bottles a day to see the results.  I did find it helpful plus I loved the strawberry flavor.
