Easy Overnight Oats - four delicious ways to make your breakfast effortless and healthy!
Yes breakfast is a real struggle.
It doesn't matter if you have help or if you have a small family.It's forever difficult to eat a healthy breakfast.
In our house, all three of us eat a different breakfast.My husband prefers something elaborate like dosa and chutney (or chicken curry! don't ask!), I (usually)like my breakfast healthy and my son wants an "all you can eat fruit buffet".
Since I discovered overnight oats, life has been easier.I soak a large batch in water or milk or greek yogurt in a airtight borosilicate box and store in the refrigerator.Come breakfast time, I scoop out a portion of the chilled oats, top it with whatever I have the mood for and voila- healthy breakfast is ready!
This is especially handy on the days I am travelling.I just take a prepared jar with me in my handbag and eat Enroute.This way I am not temped to eat the over priced, usually 5 day old sandwiches there.
These are 4 of my favourite ways of eating Overnight soaked Oats.
