So I finally got on the bandwagon for overnight oats. Since I have to be at work at 6 am, I’m always looking for the easiest, yet most filling breakfast option that I can eat on the run. Let’s be h0nest, no one likes waking up and cooking breakfast at 4:30 am. I was eating breakfast sandwiches a lot, but I decided that I was sick of those and then overnight oats came to the rescue. I love it for three reasons:
1. I love oatmeal
2. It’s filling and I’m not starving 1 hour later. I actually don’t need to eat until 10 when I get off work.
3. All the prep work is the night before (about 3 minutes worth), so all I do is grab it in the morning and it’s ready to eat.
There are obvious 100 ways to make this and since I’ve only had this a few times, I’ve only made it two ways. I make chocolate and vanilla… very simplistic.
1/2 c Almond Milk
1/2 c Oats
3/4 scoop protein powder
Sprinkle Chia seeds
1 tsp. cocoa powder (if making chocolate)
All you do is combine the ingredients, stir and put it in the refrigerator. How wonderful:)
