One of the main confessions that our patients make is that they skip breakfast most days of the week. When we ask why, the most common answer is that there just isn’t enough time to prepare something healthy.
So, of course we’ve found a solution: Make breakfast the night before!
This protein-packed oatmeal we found on dashingdish.com not only tastes AMAZING, but it’s also quick and easy for your on-the-go lifestyle!
Want more good news? Your kids will love it too!
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (we used the Aspen Slim Shake!)
- 2 Tbsp baking stevia
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond or low-fat milk
- 1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1 Tbsp sprinkles for topping (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Divide between 2 small bowls, mugs, or mason jars. Cover and refrigerate overnight so that the oats soften and absorb the liquid. Top with sprinkles in the morning and enjoy!
-If you prefer hot oats just microwave for 30-60 seconds-
*Don’t forget our 2 and 2 rule*
Breakfast should be eaten within 2 hours of waking up and your last meal should be 2 hours before bedtime.
