Well sure, in a perfect world, yes. But I don’t know about y’all but my world is far from perfect. Does that mean I encourage you, me, or anyone else to have screens around at mealtimes? Definitely not – limiting screens at meals is a fantastic goal. But I do encourage breakfast, and real talk? Sometimes that means having overnight oats as your work computer boots up instead of not eating at all.

What is turmeric?

Turmeric is a spice, most commonly used in Asian food. It’s long been used in dishes such as curries, but has been popping up in trendy health foodie circles in golden milks, turmeric lattes, and more due to its anti-inflammatory health benefits. Now, my stance is that no one food or spice will cure as all, but it’s fun to try different spices and foods and see how they work for you. Taste-wise it’s warm, very earthy, and can have a slight bitterness.

Spiced Turmeric Overnight Oats Balanced Flavors

In these Spiced Turmeric Overnight Oats you lose a bit of the bitterness with the addition of a touch of real maple syrup. Despite being a refrigerated breakfast, it feels quite warm and cozy from the warm turmeric spice plus the additional warming fall spices from pumpkin pie spice.

    • Hi Tina! The spiced turmeric overnight oats is the yellow base to the recipe (also seen in what’s on the spoon/ maybe seen more clearly in the second and third picture?) I personally like different textures and flavors in my meals, so I added toppings (banana slices, goji berries, and pumpkin seeds). I apologize for any confusion (there’s absolutely no cheese in this recipe or the toppings!), I hope this clears it up! Have a great day!
