evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Zain’s - Fruit Loops Inspired - Overnight Oats
Ok I’ll admit it, as a kid, I had a minor obsession with Fruit Loops, yep, Fruit Loops.  Saturday morning was all about brand new episodes of Jem and the Holograms and Fruit Loops with 2% milk in my favourite plastic Wonder Woman bowl.
What didn’t kill me made me stronger I suppose.  Once, recently, I was at a friend’s place and low and behold, on top of the fridge, there he was…Tucan Sam himself, smiling his creepy smile at me.  I just HAD to try one…and then spit one out.
Gross! Luckily, my palate has since developed and I wanted to bring you guys MY version of HEALTHY Fruit Loops minus the 30+ grams of sugar, food colouring and digestive tract clogging starches.
Overnight oats are the holy grail when it comes to clean eating breakfast options on the go! 
I made this recipe in honour of one of a new friend who has recently fallen in love with my signature SWISS SUMMER OATS RECIPES and enjoys fruit of all kinds!
*Veganize this recipe like I do with Dairy-Free Yogurt and Stevia! 

Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Slow Cook Oats
1/3 Cup Unsweetened Milk of Your Choice (I use homemade unsweetened almond milk, you may choose to use skim, brown rice, soy)
1/4 Heaping Cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt OR Coconut Yogurt
11/2 Tsp Chia Seeds OR Hemp Seeds
fruit of your choice I like: 
1/4 Cup Strawberries (sliced), 1/8 Cup Blueberries, 1/8 Cup Raspberries
1/4 Apricot Sliced, 1/4 Banana Sliced, 1/2 Kiwi Sliced
1/2 Tbsp Unsweetened Fruit Jam of Your Choice (I use Raspberry)
1/2 Tbsp Coconut Butter (Optional but amazing)
1/2 Scoop SUNWARRIOR VANILLA OR protein of your choice (Optional)
5-7 Drops Liquid Stevia (I use Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Flavour) OR Sweetener of Your Choice (Honey, Agave, Stevia Powder etc.)
Directions:

1. Using a half pint glass jar or mason jar, combine oats, milk of your choice, yogurt of your choice, seeds of your choice, protein powder if you wish and sweetener of your choice, cover and shake vigorously
2. Add coconut butter, fruit jam and stir until mixed well
3. Refrigerate overnight and serve the next morning chilled, topped with fruit of your choice.
