Eat it at home, or grab your jar and take it with you.
Absolutely delicious. Kid's love their breakfast in a jar too!



Here's How ...

  • Put 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a 16 oz canning jar.
  • Add 1 cup of milk. (cows, soy, coconut, almond, your choice)
  • Add fruit,(your choice). Here I added fresh strawberries and fresh blueberries.

The additions and combinations are countless, choose your favorites and design your own overnight oats.




 Here's Why ...
Oats are an important source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants as well as a rich source of a fiber called beta glucan ...

"Italian researchers  reviewed existing research about the positive effects of beta glucan on human health. They found that, in addition to reducing cholesterol and blunting glycemic and insulin response, beta glucans boost defenses of the immune system against bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites." Minerva Medica June 2009; 100(3):237-45
   

Enjoy!  .... Anna

TRY THIS FRESH RECIPE!

4 oz   100% aloe vera gel
2 oz   Kaolin clay
0.5 oz  milk powder  (goats milk or cow, full fat if you can get it)
0.5 oz  sea kelp powder

1) Make sure all your utensils and bowl are clean and sterilized. This is to keep any stray bacteria nasties from getting in your mask

If mask is too dry to spread smoothly on skin, add more aloe.

DIY How to make a daily face cleanser

All natural facial cleanser, gentle enough for everyday!
  
This is so easy, you may be tempted to dismiss it, but .... trust me.... TRY THIS !



Base Recipe:
2 Tablespoons baking soda
1 Tablespoon water

Smooth over skin in a circular motion to remove dead, dry skin cells that dull your complexion, and clog pores. Rinse with warm water, splash with cool water, pat dry. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer or a few drops of natural oils (that's what I do) such as olive oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil etc. I also use hyaluronnic acid.

Not everyone's skin is the same, if you experience irritation you just may need to add more water to your mix. It's important to moisturize after using this as well.

"WHA LAH!" or as the French say "Voila" which means "see there!"

.... this gentle exfoliating scrub reveals new skin cells, giving you a glowing, younger complexion. 

Now for some fun...
To kick this up a notch, add some great natural ingredients from your pantry....
  • For an antioxidant punch add 1/2 teaspoon of powdered matcha tea  

                              Blend matcha into baking soda and water.


   
    Mix until you get this super creamy texture, doesn't take long.


TIP: I recommend following up with a natural moisturizer, or you can simply add some oil to your cleanser. Be sure and use an oil that won't clog pores such as :

  • argan
  • hemp 
  • sunflower 
  • sea buckthorn,
  • apricot
  • sweet almond 
  • grapeseed
  • jojoba
  • peach kernal
  • tamanu
  • olive


 Other great Ingredients you can add to personalize your daily cleanser:

  • a few drops of your favorite oil to moisturize 
  • a few drops of lavender essential oil to soothe skin
  • a few drops of tea tree essential oil for troubled skin
  • colloidal oatmeal, or finely ground oatmeal to soothe
  • warmed honey, antioxidant rich, moisturizing, nourishing
  • powdered milk to soothe, nourish, gently exfoliate
  • vitamin E

Enjoy natural skin care you can make at home!
