It happened. I finally caved and put turmeric in my oatmeal.
I resisted creating turmeric recipes for a while because of my own bias against anything labeled a superfood. I don’t like it when people treat single ingredients as the ultimate fix for health. I loved turmeric, but I didn’t want to hop on the turmeric-hawking recipe train. Because I’m stubborn. 🙂
But ultimately, I didn’t want that to stop me from creating a delicious recipe (with a beautiful golden yellow hue). So turmeric it is. (more…)
I bought a huge can of red bean paste, so of course I have multiple red bean paste recipes for you now! If you’re unfamiliar with this ingredient native to Japan, I recommend reading this post for more info.
Unlike the linked recipe above, which blends the red bean paste into the oats, this recipe layers the paste into a parfait with Matcha Yogurt Overnight Zoats. This combination seemed obvious, given how often these two flavors (matcha + red bean paste) are combined in various desserts. (more…)
Isn’t this the best mess you’ve ever seen? Don’t you want to just lick it all up??
When I dumped this recipe into this bowl and saw it was going to overflow, I just kind of shrugged and let it happen. Then I dumped tahini all over it and let that overflow, too. It’s cascades of tahini delight.
Hi friends. My name is Kelsey, if we haven’t met before. I hang out on Instagram as @amindfulvegan, and today I’m here to share with you a recipe that I posted a photo of on four separate occasions before I realized that I probably needed to cool it.
I’m a little bit embarrassed to be sharing this recipe with you. It features two things that I’ve given my mother an incredible amount of grief for liking: green tea and coconut. I spent 22 holiday seasons complaining about the presence of coconut pie (and one saying “no thank you, that’s got eggs”) and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned my nose up at the Diet Arizona green tea in my parents’ fridge. (Seriously though, diet green tea is pretty gross.)
You know what’s also gross? Matcha tea. I had never tried it, so I made some before I wrote this recipe up and that stuff is nasty. It’s grassy and bitter, but not in a good way. My recommendations for eating matcha are the same as the ones Lauren made in a recent post. That’s what a whole banana, and the coconut water, is for–cutting the bitterness. It tones the matcha flavor down to make a pleasant, fresh tasting bowl of oats that I promise isn’t grassy in the slightest. (more…)
Now that I’ve experimented with matcha powder a few times in my oats, I have established a few rules:
- It has to be an overnight recipe, or at least some type of recipe that will allow it to “rest” before being eaten. In my experience, adding matcha to stovetop oats and eating it right away always results in bitter and excessively earthy flavors.
- It has to be combined with ingredients that will cut that bitterness. I thought citrus would do this, but it seems that yogurt, cashew cream, and banana do a better job of this. This became especially true when I tried a grapefruit-matcha drink after my 5K last weekend. (Ew, ew, ew.)
- Don’t skimp on sweetener. No matter how much you think you like bitter things.
With these rules in mind, here is my latest take on matcha.
Every Saturday, I gather oatmeal recipes from around the web from the previous 1-3 weeks, as well as outstanding Instagram photos. These posts may grow or evolve as time passes. Please feel free to give your feedback in the comments section!
This week’s theme is overnight oats!

Choc Chili Beet Zoats 👻 Follow me on Snapchat: healthyeatingjo 👻 to see the video of them and the rainy view out my window today, where all the photography action happens! 📸 How much do you hate hearing your own voice, and why can’t I talk with a my normal voice when I’m filming!? 😬 I’m sure I’ll get used to it ❤️ Anyway these hot oats are a lead-in to a string of Beetroot related posts coming your way, and another Choc Chili recipe too. I do love spicy food, so had to try a chocolate recipe with some kick. The baked Beetroot and coconut water from @naturalrawc add some natural sweetness to the dish too 😋🍫🔥 Pow! 👊 Topped with fruit, some cherry Choc @squareorganics bar, and deluxe buckinis from @loving_earth ❤️ and ok, as well as Beetroot there’s some grated zucchini in there to make up the ‘Zoats’ element of the dish. Get hiding those veggies everyone 💜💖💚🌿 and have a great day 😘 the recipe will be in the comments and on the blog (link in profile)
Mi novio recently told me the smartest thing ever. He claims cha in Japanese is “tea.” Think about it: kombuCHA. MatCHA. It’s also not a far cry from chai, which means “tea” in languages such as Arabic and Hindu (based on my very quick research). Brilliant.
I am becoming more comfortable with matcha as I learn how to combine it with other flavors. Initially, it seems like it wouldn’t pair well with anything else, but after trying Matcha Marketplace oatmeal packets, I see that it’s far more cooperative than I realized. As matcha becomes more popular here in the USA, I think we will see it incorporated into increasingly unexpected products. Are Matcha Skittles in our future?? 😜 (more…)

Lychees and coconut milk. That’s it. I wanted to add mango so badly, but I knew if I did, I wouldn’t be able to taste the lychee as well. Considering how rare and special it is for me to possess fresh freakin’ lychees, I wasn’t about to cover it up with the (admittedly delicious) flavor of mango. In my opinion, when there’s a fruit you rarely have around, you let that fruit be the goddamn star.
What better way to complement fresh lychees than with coconut milk? Actually, I used coconut creamer. No, not coconut cream from a can. I actually bought a little carton of coconut creamer from Trader Joe’s. (more…)
I’m pretty stubborn, so I continue to sweat over a stove to cook my daily porridge, which I then take to my bedroom and eat while standing directly in front of the air conditioner. However, I understand that’s not everyone’s cup of chamomile tea. If you don’t want to say goodbye to your filling, fibrous oats, here are my ten favorite recipes that avoid turning on stoves or ovens!
Bright from the citrus and creamy from the coconut! (more…)
Happy Wednesday! The sun has finally come out again in New York City, and the forecast shows sun for the next week. ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ That means I’ll finally be able to get back to blogging.
You see, because I live in a Brooklyn apartment, it’s not feasible for me to take pictures outside (much to my displeasure). I have to take all my pictures right next to my bedroom window to get some natural light, and to get enough light, I need it to be MEGA sunny. Cloudy days work great for outside pictures, but not indoors. The past two weeks have been endlessly cloudy, resulting in me running out of recipes to post. My apologies.
For those of you unfamiliar with dirt pie (and that could very well be many of you), it’s a dessert with chocolate pudding topped with crushed Oreos and gummy worms. It’s a popular dessert to serve kids, especially around Halloween. (more…)
