Once again, I find myself wanting to cook everything from a Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook — she gets me every single time (#Slay). My most recent recipe is Chocolate Cinnamon Overnight Oats — and in a span of four days, I have made it twice — simple, easy, healthy, and oh-so-good.

Ingredients:

 

ingredients

 

* 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats

* 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* 1/2 teaspoon raw cacoa

* A pinch of salt

* 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

* 2/3 cup of almond milk

* 2 dates cut into small pieces

* 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

 

Directions:

* Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. YEP, that easy!!

Here is my fridge!!!! (I know you want to see inside #Voyeur). And for those of you with eagle eyes, I did not purchase containers of pre-cut pineapple and watermelon. That was a #fail from Fresh Direct where they gave me a box of those items plus 100 yogurt tubes.

So good.

So good. Can you taste it through this computer screen? DELICIOUS!
