Many years ago I picked up a good friend of mine early in the morning and she was kind enough to make me breakfast. Being a fellow health junkie, she had prepared oatmeal…only she didn’t do it the traditional way…
By now you may have heard of overnight oats, they have infiltrated blogs everywhere, and for good reason. The first thing you eat in the morning really sets the tone for the rest of the day, so it’s important that it’s something nutritious. But who has time to make a healthy breakfast every day? And that is why this recipe is awesome. It takes 5 minutes to make the night before, and you can grab it in the morning and go, You can even make it up to 2 days in advance!
I recommend oatmeal to many of my clients because it’s a great source of protein and fiber as well as zinc, chromium, manganese, B1 and many other vitamins and minerals. Plus, by adding the right fruits and superfoods, not only can you make it a nutrient powerhouse, it also tastes really good. And that’s always a plus in my book.
