Hi, I'm Valerie! I'm a Social Media Marketing Consultant and visual storyteller based in Portland, OR.

Let’s hang Out


Zoats: Zucchini + Oats

Zoats: Zucchini + Oats

Zucchini + Oats = pure awesomeness. 😜 Zoats are on the rise as a fibre-filled and very Instagram-friendly breakfast. Ok, I get it, the mash-up might sound odd, but they are SO GOOD! You get that oat-y taste of a breakfast bowl that remains essentially unchanged, while the zucchini brings a punch of goodness, setting you up for the day before you've even started it. By adding a fiber-filled zucchini in with your oats first thing in the morning, you'll more than likely get as much as a third of your recommended daily intake with your breakfast.

The best part is that zoats are pretty easy to make! All you need to do is measure about 1/3 cups of oats, before grating in as much zucchini as you like. Next, add whichever milk you like with your bowl. Heat the hob and stir for a few minutes, before adding whichever sweetener you like and topping with your favorites.
