Farmer’s Market Prep In 5 Easy Steps

55 comments

I realized that preparing for a Farmer’s market, is a bit like preparing for a race

1) Lay out everything the night before!

2) Get about 4 hours of sleep.

3) Make a filling breakfast

Strawberry Carob Vegan Overnight Oats

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp carob powder (gives it the sweet taste)
  • 1 diced banana
  • 5-6 small strawberries, chopped

 

Directions: Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and then add wet and whisk. Place in fridge overnight. Serve with more strawberries.

Diced banana….

Chop, chop!

After whisking everything like a crazy woman.

More strawberries because I kept eating the VOO. :biggrin:

Then into the fridge overnight or in the fridge for about 45-60 mins. You choose! Note- you do not heat the VOO in the morning.

5am on a Saturday doesn’t get any better than this…

I couldn’t get over how HOT it is outside today- even super early this morning. It is supposed to hit 30C today so hopefully we don’t melt at the market!

I had a layer of strawberries on the bottom!

I am loving how cute the CSA strawberries are! SO much flavour too.

This recipe was one of my favourite VOO concoctions by far! So amazing. I love carob powder + strawberries together.

4) Consume a ton of fluids

I hope there are bathrooms at the market… :ermm:

5) Rush out the door!

Good luck today!!! I know you’ll do great. I have a family brunch tomorrow and I am going to be attempting a vegan breakfast casserole sometime today – hopefully it turns out good. Be on the lookout! (even though I don’t think I could ever eat a breakfast casserole for breakfast. I am in love with my traditional breakfast too much)

I SO want to try some of your goodies!

I’m such a sweet-aholic. I spent 15 years working in bakeries as a cake decorator, and before that it was 6 years in a Dairy Queen!

Hey, maybe you can make the cake and I can make the flowers to put on top!

Good luck today! Two things- First- I received my Glo bar order in the mail this week. They are very good, but I especially love how I feel after I eat one… full, satisfied, and I know I put only great ingredients into my body. Number 2- I just made your VOO with the banana soft serve and layered it. It was very good. I need to experiment to add something more (like fruit). Thanks for the idea!

I said a little prayer for you this morning. I hope you are the hit of the Farmer’s Market. Oh, and I had a dream about cacao nibs last night. That’s it, I’m buying some asap. If they are popping up in my dreams, they must be good.
