How do you feel about chocolate for breakfast? I’m totally good with it from time to time, especially when it’s loaded with protein like these Fudgy Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats. It’s a chocolate-for-breakfast indulgence that’s not too sweet…so you won’t feel guilty about it, especially if you top it all off with fresh fruit like raspberries. I may have also added some homemade whipped cream on top too because I recently bought a stand mixer and I’m more than a little obsessed 😉
I had to add some fresh flowers to these photos because (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again) spring has sprung in San Antonio! There are flowers everywhere and I honestly couldn’t help myself. My girlfriend and I went for a walk specifically to pick some flowers…which turned out to have a big ass moth and bunch of little crawley things on them. But hey, bringing some nature inside isn’t all bad right? Right? Don’t worry, I made sure these flowers were clear before I stuck them in the whipped cream. Side note: these are not edible flowers, I put them in my food for photos because they’re pretty (but I didn’t eat them).
Happy hump day!
