Are you tired over the overnight oat recipes? I really hope not. Because I can guarantee as the weather turns colder, you will be seeing more of these -- possibly with a pumpkin or cinnamon spice flavor. Hint, hint.
I recently switched jobs and I now work at a community college as an instructor.So, I haven't been able to say this in years, but, now I can; It's time to go back to school! With going back to school means that I have to get up earlier to fit my workout in before class. And with getting up earlier means tiredness, crankiness, and possibly a bit of laziness. Laziness only in regards to cooking myself a breakfast.
Enter overnight oats. You wonderful, wonderful creation. I make up 5 of these on Sunday afternoon and put them in my fridge for the week. Every morning, breakfast is ready to go so I can just zap it in the microwave and eat it as I get ready in the morning.
If you are not a breakfast eater, try overnight oats out. Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day and you do need something that is going to fuel your morning.
