Ovenight Refregirator Oats

 My new found obsession and a sensetional on youtube… Refrigerator Oats. 

Sharing the fact that i accidentally came across this recipe a couple of months ago. My weightloss journey and my quest towards fighting my unhealthy relationship with carbs made me miss many of my favourite recipes including this one. i have managed to shed more than 15lbs/ 7kg in one months on a Paleo diet. I then decided to add few carbs and more kms on my daily runs as a treat. The this is weightloss is so predictable, its simple.

Equation 

<calorie intake + > excersise/ calorie burn =weightloss 

>calorie intake +<excersise/ calorie bur = weightgain

Oats, my all time favorite cereal since childhood. Its not only a healthy choice of a breakfast cereal, but it also provide long lasting energy through out the morning. Its a great way to kick all those unnecessary snacks with added calories into your diet. Ive tried many recipes including chewy oat crunchies, granola cookies and bars using few of my trusted brands… maybe one day I’ll share with you guys lol.
Best choice in the market if you ask me is to buy old fashion raw rolled oats, it just taste better.
Anyway back to the star of the show, Refrigerator Oats… lets me share my mncaaaaa(means “nice” in isiXhosa) recipe.
