We live in a crazy world. My heart is lightened by Good Karma’s charitable initiative of “pouring on goodness,” making the world a better place one ripple at a time. There are lots of small things we can do to make the world a better place. Just like a ripple, it starts with a small act that has long-lasting effects that spread outwards.
Just a week ago, a great tragedy happened in our nation. Last Monday I was devastated, trying to find a way to process the shooting in Las Vegas. In the middle of it all, I had the opportunity to focus on something good.
My day job is working as the Communications Coordinator at a regional restaurant chain, Dion’s. An employee’s two-year-old son was diagnosed with Leukemia a few months ago and I helped organize a toy drive to donate toys to Children’s Cancer Fund of New Mexico, in his honor.
He is the same age as Miss T which made working on this project the past few months very touching. I can imagine how my life would change if it was my little girl who was battling Leukemia, and it breaks my heart.
While contemplating the events in Las Vegas, I sent out press releases and organized the delivery of more than 400 donated toys. There was a stark contrast between the act of one person in Las Vegas who had hurt so many and the small acts of kindness that so many people had shown in donating toys to comfort kids after receiving cancer treatments.
When I skip breakfast or am “hangry” and grumpy, it is harder to take those moments to help others and make the world a better place. This is where gluten-free pumpkin pie overnight oats come in. Not only do they fuel my day, my kids loved them too.
These dairy-free pumpkin pie overnight oats are full of good things like certified gluten-free oats, pumpkin puree, just a touch of maple syrup, chia seeds, and Good Karma Flaxmilk. All you have to do is mix everything together and let it sit for 4+ hours. I like to make it in mason jars for easy on-the-go breakfasting.
This time of year I love pumpkin in everything! I want to buy a popover pan just so I can try my friend Sandi from Fearless Dining’s Gluten-Free Popovers. She added pumpkin to them, such a creative recipe!
Good Karma Flaxmilk is made with the tiny, yet mighty, flax seed. It is smooth and creamy, super allergy-friendly, and has calcium, vitamin D, and omega 3’s. Bonus, these pumpkin pie overnight oats are vegan (as is Good Karma’s Flaxmilk)!
Good Karma also donates to organizations that make a difference in the community, and you can help them give back while saving money! Definitely a win-win. Good Karma has given me a $2 off Flaxmilk coupon (a 1⁄2 price value) to share with you. After you download it, Good Karma Foods will match it with a $2 donation to community organizations that are inspiring and activating goodness every day, including FARE’s The Teal Pumpkin Project, The Grow Haus, and The Gangsta Gardener.

Each day we choose how we act, what we say, and what we do. We can “pour on goodness”, creating ripples of kindness extending out from us everywhere we go. We can lend a helping hand to a stressed co-worker, tuck a love note into our kiddos’ lunch box, or bring a smile to someone’s face with a well-timed dad joke.
How will you pour on some goodness?
- ⅓ cup purity protocol gluten-free quick oats
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- ½ cup Good Karma Flaxmilk of choice (I used vanilla)
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- pumpkin pie seasoning, to taste (I sprinkled in a little cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg)
- Mix all ingredients in a container. Let sit for 4 hours or overnight before enjoying.
