My Food Bag Flaked Salmon and Rocket Salad with Baked Rice cooked by Lena Talks

Meal kit delivery services have taken the country by storm, and I’ve tried a number of them now. I’ve posted quite a bit about the amazing meals I’ve prepared, but wanted to write more extensive reviews of some of the different meal kits available in New Zealand. In this post I’ve written about my experience of using My Food Bag, My Food Bag’s Fresh Start, Food Box, and World On Our Plate (WOOP). I’ve also done the maths to compare the cost per meal for the different services.

Lena Talks Breakfast: Overnight Oats

Apple and Cinnamon Overnight Oats - Lena Talks Beauty

Recently I decided to include the odd non-beauty related post, and this is my first food post! I’m ever a late adopter of things, and I’ve got into making Overnight Oats in the last few weeks after seeing them on blogs and Pinterest for years now. I used to love making porridge in the mornings when I was a student, but now I prefer to sleep until the last possible minute and end up eating at my desk when I get to work which makes porridge a bit impractical, and overnight oats perfect.

I have experimented a lot, and I have a few different varieties of overnight oats that I make but this is my go-to lately. It’s based on a recipe from My Whole food Life  but I’ve changed up some of the ingredients to suit what I have available, and what I like to eat. So without further ado, here is my recipe for Apple and Cinnamon Overnight Oats.Apple and Cinnamon Overnight Oats Recipe - Lena Talks Beauty
