You know those people that see something on Pinterest and do their version and post “nailed it!” not in the sarcastic, I’m a disaster way BUT really do nail it? Well that’s our Kailie. She is one of the most creative, artistic, working, amazing Mom, all around sweet people I know. Kailie has been with us since 2007 and is well known as a fantastic Cake Decorator!
Since Kailie is a working mom with a preschooler she’s always concerned about nutrition on the go. For a quick breakfast she makes overnight oats with FrEsH fruit in small mason jars and her Summer Corn and Blueberry Salad is savory/sweet perfection. These recipes are so delicious I had to ask her to share!
For 4 oz mason jars use 1/3 cup oatmeal, put that in first. Then add whatever fruit and extras that sound yummy. Leave room to pour almond milk, pour milk over once, let settle for a min and then finish topping jar off (about 1/3 cup milk)
The berries are sooooo ripe that I like it with just oatmeal, berries and almond milk. But my other favorites are peaches with brown sugar and cinnamon, and Granny Smith apple, vanilla protein powder and cinnamon.
Nutrition add ins... flax, hemp, or chia seeds, protein powder, nuts.
Flavor add ins.... maple syrups, honey, coconut flakes, almond butter, banana, chocolate chips, pumpkin purée, cinnamon, brown sugar, yogurt, fruit purée.
You can use almond, coconut, soy or dairy milk !
Corn Blueberry Salad
2 ears white corn
1 small pack blueberries or 1 1/2 cup
1/2 a Red onion
2 tblsp honey
2 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper
Boil corn and cut off cob, rinse blueberries, seed and chop jalapeño, peel and slice cucumber, chop onion, roughly chop a large handful of cilantro. Put lime juice, honey, cumin, salt and pepper in a screw top jar till combined and pour over salad.
Glass canning jars are a great way to store and transport single servings! If we don’t have the size jar you want just let us know and we’ll order it.
Thanks for sharing your Hometown Healthy recipes Kailie!
