Presenting, my Quaker Overnight Oatmeal Hacks!! (see these 3 fool-proof recipes!)

A lot of people in Manila are now crazy about Overnight Oats!

Blame it on Quaker plus a number of celebrity and online influencers in the Philippines for promoting the consumption of better and healthier breakfast choices like oats, which is a long-known type of food with high dietary fiber which is great for the digestive system.

Being the foodie that I am, I knew that I had to join the band of breakfast warriors who are now posting their own versions of overnight oats on Facebook, Instagram with all their flatlays and what nots. I actually bought Quaker's promo box before, which included a bag of Quick Cooking Oats with a free breakfast jar, which is actually smaller that the one on the photo below.

And BTW, this huge canister of Whole Grain Rolled Quaker Oats is so inexpensive and will last you for a few weeks if you are planning to consume oats everyday. Serve it cooked (warm or cold), or uncooked and left overnight with milk plus and healthy toppings such as dried fruit and nuts, and voila! Healthy breakfast is made easy and convenient. You can even make them ahead of time! Neat, right?

Are you experimenting on overnight oats lately? Share your recipes on the comments below so I can try them! Meantime, please feel free to use some of my tried and tested overnight oat 'formulas' below!


Take note: I only use a small amount of oats on these recipes simply because my stomach cannot take more than a half cup of oats in one sitting. Hahaha!

Skinny Fitnesse Overnight Oats (please refer to the photo above)
1/2 c. Quaker Whole Grain Rolled Oats
1/2 c. Non Fat Milk
1 tbsp. greek yogurt
1 tsp. sugar (I prefer using muscovado or coco sugar)
Fitnesse Cereal Bar

Combine ingredients together except the cereal bar and leave it in the fridge overnight. When ready to serve, top with the crumbled Fitnesse Cereal Bar. I normally use the strawberry variant. Don't do it the night before because it's just gonna be as soft as the soaked oats and that ruins the texture. Best served cold.

Banana Caramel Overnight Oats
1/2 c. Quaker Whole Grain Rolled Oats
1/2 c. Milk
1 tsp. dulce de leche (or simply cooked condensed milk)
1 small banana (I like using lacatan bananas, but cavendish is fine)

Combine ingredients together and leave it in the fridge overnight. You can opt to add the bananas before leaving overnight, or even use it as a topping the morning after. Best served cold.

Berry Yummy Overnight Oats
1/2 c. Quaker Whole Grain Rolled Oats
1/2 c. Strawberry Yogurt Milk
1 tbsp. greek yogurt
1 tsp. dried berry mix or nuts
(please only put a small amount! I prefer almonds too -- whole, not chopped hehe)

Combine ingredients together and leave it in the fridge overnight. Best served cold.

Notice that these receipes does not require a lot of ingredients, and if you really want to avoid the sugars, I suggest not to add a lot of ingredients either (not a fan of overnight oats with lots of things in it. Sure they look pretty IG worthy, but they're not as healthy anymore.)

My Snow Caps Review: The Effects Of Taking Snow Caps Oral Glutathione Capsules

There was a time where I was actually afraid of taking vitamins and food supplements because I was worried it would just make me feel bloated and fat. That time, I was young, naïve and a bit careless. It was the same case until I reached mid-20s and I started to look after myself even more.   So I decided to take vitamins every now and then to help me get through the daily stress and inevitable circumstances of drinking with friends. But never did I imagine that I will be taking glutathione, simply because I don't have a goal of having white and fair skin. I love my brown color, thank you very much. Little did I know that the effects of Gluthathione are far more impressive from what I know. Naturally, glutathione is produced by the liver and is considered as ont of the most powerful antioxidants which inhibits the production of toxins and free radicals. These toxins are usually caused by stress and other external lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking and fatigue.

A Traveller's Guide When Eating Tamilok In Palawan

I'm not sure if it's just me, but if you are travelling in Palawan, you would notice that that a lot of the locals would know exactly what to say when it comes to the go-to tourist spots, especially promoting their exotic  Tamilok. I even had this weird imagination that all the people in Palawan were programmed to say all the nicest things for the sake of tourism. But I know too well that this is not true, because Palawan is just a wonderful place and there is nothing major that I had to complain about. But just in case you might be itching for  Tamilok, you should also know that there are certain rules to abide by. And this is just a quick guide when purchasing  Tamilok in Palawan. THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PALAWAN'S FAMOUS TAMILOK     -Tamilok, thanks to Google, becomes a familiar term when you search for it. One of the locals told me that "it's not a wood, and it's not a worm". I'm not sure if you guys have encountered that same local
