Strawberry Overnight Oats With O Organics

October 12, 2016

Last week I flew to Chicago (for the first time!) with Randalls and Albertsons to learn about the O Organics® brand. O Organics is exclusive to the Albertsons family of stores with more than 300 USDA Certified items – this includes fresh vegetables and fruits, dairy and meats, cereals, snacks, and more. I love the O Organics brand because the products are high quality but are offered at a value. Albertsons believes (and I believe) everyone should have the opportunity to go organic!

I get my O Organics products at Randalls and Albertsons, but if you are outside of the Austin area, O Organics products are available at the Albertsons family of  stores across the country, including Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, ACME Markets, Tom Thumb,Pavilions and Star Market.

Read on for our day with O Organics and the strawberry overnight oats recipe!

We started the morning off with overnight oats breakfast bar where you could customize your own overnight oats with toppings like coconut flakes, chia seeds, walnuts, silvered almonds, strawberries, and blueberries. I loved the strawberry overnight oats. With a room full of bloggers – you knew tables would be moved, chairs would be stood on, and plenty of cameras would be clicking away.

Albertsons Companies’ Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Annessa Chumbley demoed a couple easy and healthy recipes with O Organics products. Make protein pancakes in advance by freezing them and then defrost for a quick breakfast during the week. For fast and easy meatloaf, use a cupcake tin to create muffin tin meatloaves. One pot pastas like her one pot penne are lifesavers during a busy week when you still want to eat healthy.

We were then released into the kitchen to play with O Organics ingredients and create a dish of our own. I teamed up with Love & Lemons and Edible Perspective to create a veggie potato hash.

Viola! Our yummy potato hash with bell peppers and chickpeas. Finished with spinach, and fresh thyme and chives. I’ll definitely be recreating this at home.

I’m all about quick and easy meals during the week so I had to recreate the overnight strawberry oats. You might remember my Chocolate Covered Strawberries Overnight Oatmeal, but this overnight oats was much more creamier. The secret? Coconut milk.
