If you’re anything like me, you sleep until the very last second where if you stay in bed any longer you’re guaranteed to be rolling into the office late. While my intentions are always good (get up on-time, shower, make a healthy smoothie and a homemade lunch) it usually looks a little more like this: fall out of bed, ponytail, bagel in a bag, out the door.
Thankfully for us anti-morning people there’s a solution to our sub-standard breakfast routine and it’s called Overnight Oats. It’s a nutritious, balanced breakfast that you make the night before and just grab on the go in the morning. The basics of overnight oats are easy: take a glass jar (I like these over plastic containers because they don’t leak) add oats and your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk (I like a coconut/almond milk blend) top with a few big spoonfuls of yogurt and leave in the fridge overnight. That’s it. The oats soften overnight making a nutritious parfait of sorts by daybreak. You can get all sorts of fancy with these by adding different fruits or other flavors. Overnight oats; have oats, will travel.
