Let’s face it: sometimes in the mornings, you skip breakfast. You just don’t have time, and so what if you don’t eat until lunch, right? Wrong. You’re missing out on a morning’s worth of nutrients your body needs to keep from crashing. Try eating breakfast every day just for one week and let us know how you feel after. Chances are, you’ll feel a heck of a lot better!
Here’s a really simple trick for you to try: Overnight Oats. Perhaps you’ve heard of them? They’re extremely easy to make, and packed full of protein and fiber that your body needs. Plus, overnight oats are easier for your body to digest. What are you waiting for? These oats are gluten-free, and this recipe can even be vegan if you swap out the yogurt for soy or almond milk. From there, the world is yours. You can add berries, maple syrup, some Sugar Plum Cherry Almonds, and whatever else your heart desires. The best part is… This only takes about 2 minutes to prepare!
1 cup rolled oats
¾ cup greek yogurt, or almond milk, or regular milk
Berries and Sugar Plum Cherry Almonds for garnish
- Combine the oats, yogurt, and honey in a jar.
- Leave in the fridge overnight, or for at least 6 hours. This is where the magic happens – the oats absorb the moisture from the yogurt or milk. Cool!
- The next morning, you can eat your oats right out of the jar. Throw some Sugar Plum Cherry Almonds and berries on top for the perfect breakfast. Your body will thank you. Enjoy!
