Easy, Healthy oatmeal
Start the day with whole grains flavored just the way you like! Buy bulk oats, chia seeds, raisins, chocolate chips, coconut, and more. Then, mix up a jar of your favorite flavored oatmeal. This is a great way to have an easy, hearty breakfast on hand to whip up a bowl of hot oats in the morning. Top with fresh fruit, chopped nuts, or maple syrup. Yum! Here is a primer on making the perfect oatmeal.
To make an overnight oatmeal, mix up 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup milk of your choice, and 1/3 cup yogurt of your choice along with additional sweeteners or flavorings like fruit or chocolate chips in a pint jar. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Here’s a recipe for overnight oats.
Homemade Hot Cocoa
If you are hankering for a cup of hot cocoa but don’t have any mix in the cupboard, do not fret. You can make a cup from scratch using bulk pantry ingredients! Here’s how:
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 or 2 tablespoons cane sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
- Pinch sea salt
- 1 cup whole milk or plain, unsweetened plant milk
Whisk together the cocoa, sugar, salt, and milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until cocoa and sugar are dissolved. Continue whisking occasionally just until it starts to boil. Remove from heat, pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!
Soothing, comforting Wellness products
Scoop out some Pacha Soothing Oatmeal Bath Salt from the jar (10th St.), pour into your tub, fill the tub with water as hot as you can stand, and soak away your stress. Oats soothe and moisturize your skin and a soak in Himalayan salt is calming and soothing as well.
Mix up your own massage oil
Massage oil is one of the easiest things to make yourself. Just choose one of the bulk oils available at 10th St. and scent the oil with your favorite essential oil such as lavender, chamomile, or ylang ylang.
Mix and match your own tea blend
Mix your own loose leaf tea blends at home with bulk tea and dried herbs. Choose a black or green tea from many varieties and flavor it with your favorite herb. A few options might include Earl Grey Green with lavender, China Green tea with licorice root, or Darjeeling black tea with lemon balm. Chamomile, valerian root, and lavender are a relaxing blend to sip and help wind down before bedtime. Go wild with your mixtures!
