Overnight Yogurt Oats with POM Chia

Overnight Yogurt Oats with POM ChiaThe time has come for me to reevaluate the way I eat. There! I am publicly admitting it! My eating habits got WAY out of control. I’m drastically cutting my portions and shutting down a weekly dessert-fair that’s been working out of my kitchen like a clockwork for the past two years. I know, it’s a tough and cruel decision, but hey, I love my waist more than I love cakes. I think..? Bare with me here, will ya? A woman needs some encouragement during tough dieting times. Some cheering and applause would be appropriate right about now. It’s been a week of calorie counting and I’m still full of enthusiasm! Yay! And you know what? Dieting can be a blessing in disguise! I swear it CAN! Apparently, there is a whole world of all kinds of food that I forgot even existed. Like, vegetables, for example.. No, but in all seriousness, contrary to what I expected, my breakfast choices substantially increased as my calorie intake decreased. ‘Cause you just gotta get creative in order to survive on a handful of calories. The bottom line is – breakfast jars are in, cakes are out! All good news, right? Right?!
