Overnight Oats – A Quick, Healthy Way to Start Your Day

Why overnight oats? Well, breakfast is one the most important meals. I know it, you know it. But how do you design it, filled with the right energy and nutrients? How do you avoid the morning stress preparing breakfast? How do you ensure you won’t later have a blood sugar crash?

Here’s a recipe that will help you along the way. You prepare it ahead, the night before and it literally takes 5 minutes to make. And once this evening preparation is done, you will have a healthy breakfast ready in the morning and more time to do something other than just getting breakfast ready 🙂
