For years I was a faithful Kashi Go Lean cereal eater. This week I decided to try something new–something with fewer ingredients and less fiber–for the most important meal of the day, and I am pleased with the switch.
I don’t know who stumbled upon or coined the term “Overnight Oats,” but they must be brilliant. I love oatmeal, but I never want to take the time to make it in the morning–we don’t have a microwave, and who wants to dirty a pot on a weekday before they’ve had coffee? Not this girl. Enter overnight oats. Put the ingredients in a bowl before you go to bed, and it’s ready when you wake up.
In my bowl this week: 1/2 c oats (not instant), 1/2 c + splash soy milk, frozen blueberries, sprinkle of cinnamon, pinch of salt. In the morning I stir in a spoonful of peanut butter. And, of course, coffee with soy milk to wash it all down.
It’s easy, delicious, and keeps me full for hours! I think I’m in love.
What’s your go-to breakfast?
