The Easiest Breakfast For A Busy Morning

Breakfast is so important. But, it’s also important to be able to get up, get ready, and get out the door without going crazy.

Most of the time, you're super busy and the idea of making a hot breakfast every day just isn’t possible.

But that doesn’t mean you should ave to go hungry. Starting your day with a hearty meal gives your body the fuel it needs to be it’s best. Without breakfast, you risk blood sugar dips, lack of energy, and crazy cravings at lunch time when you finally get a chance to eat.

Instead of running out the door and hoping someone brought donuts to the office for breakfast, you can actually make a healthy meal the night before that requires no busy morning prep work.

It’s called Overnight Oats and the title really says it all. Unlike normal oatmeal which requires a hot stove (or a microwave at the least), these recipes let the oats soak overnight in a variety of delicious ingredients. By the morning you’ve got a cold, cereal-like breakfast that’s full of nutrients to fuel your day.

With about 5 minutes work the night before (at the most), you’ll get a ready made breakfast.

Sounds better than a stale office donut, right?

Here are a few recipes so you can enjoy all the possibilities of overnight oats.
