"Sweet juicy blackberries soaked in bright lime and mint flavors with the faintest aroma of rum will perk you up even on the toughest mornings. You can add a teaspoon or two of chia seeds to make this extra thick."

I made a breakfast food. I know right. This is HUGE. I rarely post breakfast food. So this is a real treat. For you and my family. Who happen to love breakfast.
Truth be told I rarely eat breakfast. Which is horrible. I'll admit it's an awful habit. It's something that just sort of happened because of my IBS.
But this gal is kicking her "no breakfast" habit. We're attempting to make some changes to our routine at the B Compound. So why not start with breakfast.
So when I had the opportunity to work with my buddy Kathy on this event I jumped at the chance. Food and friends, that's the meaning of life right!
I whipped up her Blackberry Mojito Overnight Refrigerator Oats and was super pleased I chose this recipe. It is freaking amazing. I want to eat this every day, all the live long day.
You should make this. And eat this. Every day. All the live long day.
Grab the recipe, print that sucker off and get into the kitchen immediately. Whip it up before bed and bam, you have a tasty breakfast for morning.
Now here's the recipe, then we'll move onto the book and giveaway deets. You are going to want to buy Kathy's book so be sure to keep on reading! Plus there's a fabulous giveaway. I want YOU to win!

This recipe is BRILLIANT!! I am not a breakfast person and do not make breakfast for my family. This, however, is giving me reason to surprise them with something delicious that I do not have to fix when my mind is not yet working in the morning!
Great to discover all the different opinions on here.
