Gluten free Blueberry oats to go 

Bob’s Red Mill sent out some samples of their oats to go for me to try. So I decided on trying the blueberry and hazelnut with flax and chia. First of all- I have to warn you I am not a fan of blueberries. I don’t like the way they look, or turn my food to a different color – the texture, taste- sorry to those who are a fan of them- it just means more for you to eat.

With that being said, in my to go cup thankfully there was only maybe 6 pieces of little blueberries. I did try one, I found it to be undercooked and yes, I still don’t like blueberries. I did eat the rest of the oatmeal because I DID like the flavour of it. Loved the hazelnuts and appreciated the colouring from the blueberries it made plain oatmeal look berry pretty. (Yes, I did mean to say berry).

With 7 grams of fibre, 8g’s of protein, 10% iron-  you can’t go wrong with this grab and go cup. Plus it takes a minute to cook, let sit for two minutes and boom- breakfast is done.

I can’t wait to try their maple and brown sugar next. But I’m saving it for last. I’m going to have the classic one first.

Apple Cinnamon Gluten Free Oatmeal

Bob’s Red Mill kindly sent me some samples. I haven’t tried all of them yet, but will be posting as I try them. I made the apple cinnamon gluten free oatmeal the other day. Fill the cup to the indicator line, zap in microwave for a minute, let sit for 2 minutes. Breakfast in under 5 mins. I love that there’s real chunks of apples in it (not to mention there’s 8 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein). It’s so easy that my 8 year old can make this on her own. The oatmeal to go cups are satisfying. They fill you up without weighing you down. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or even a snack. Sweet, but not sickening sweet like some oatmeal packets. My only regret or disappointment is not saving this one to the last. I would recommend this oatmeal to everyone. You do not need to be gluten free to enjoy this, but to all my gluten free friends- if you haven’t tried this yet you should. It doesn’t taste gf- read it doesn’t taste like cardboard.

Cook along Jan 4- 10

Hi everyone! I’m going to be hosting a cook along. I’ll be posting new recipes each Friday so you can shop for the ingredients over the weekend (late start, but I know you have potatoes and other veggies)

Ginny McMeans’s new book The Make Ahead Vegan is going to be out in stores later this month, but head over to Amazon and pre-order yours now. During the month of Jan we’re going to be cooking recipes from Vegan in the Freezer.

What I love about this site is almost every recipe can be made ahead of time- so you can just pull it out of your freezer and have a healthful meal instead of eating junk food.

Make as many dishes as you want, take some pictures and use the hashtag #veganinthefreezer so we can find you easily on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

For those with a pressure cooker, I’m going to be making these recipes in honour of Jill’s a.k.a the veggie queen new book (out later this month) Vegan Under Pressure. What I love about this site- wonderful healthful meals made in minutes. Jill has a utube channel that you should check out. A step by step visual. With the ease of an instant pot you don’t need to babysit your food. You can shower, clean the kitchen, help the kids with homework- or do nothing at all 🙂

I’m not posting a menu plan, as I don’t really have time for that and I’m working on more projects which I’m not willing  to chat about yet, but you will be the first one to know what I’m up to, in the future.
