Overnight Oats

Oatmeal is not my favorite breakfast but it has tons of heart healthy benefits.  

  • Oats lower cholesterol levels because they are rich in soluble fiber
  • Oats have a unique antioxidant that helps prevent heart disease 
  • They stabilize blood sugar {if you get moody like me in the mornings- this is crucial!} 
  • Protect against post menopausal breast cancer << super interesting, right? This is due to the high fiber content.

Convinced?  Yeah me too.  But oatmeal is boring and breakfast is my favorite meal- so why make it boring.

Overnight oats are a delicious way to enjoy oatmeal-cold. Which is super perfect with this weather.

When you cook oats they soak in all of the water to make a fluffy consistency.  So when you create overnight oats- think of all of the goodness you can soak into the cereal.  My FAVORITE thing to do is peanut butter jar is empty- don’t toss or wash the jar.  Instead make the oats in that jar so you will get peanut butter oats.
