What’s Trending: Overnight Oats
Let’s be real, waking up is already a challenge.
It’s so much nicer to hit snooze 3x rather than getting out of bed, but now you’re running 30 minutes behind in your morning routine and breakfast is the last thing on your mind when you’re rushing out the door.
As the old adage goes: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast fuels the body and brain after an overnight fast. But to kick start your day on the right foot, you should be providing your body with important nutrients like calcium, iron, protein and fiber to enhance your productivity throughout the day.
It’s time to change up your morning routine – without disrupting your love affair with the snooze button.
Enter: Overnight Oats.
By combining milk and old fashioned oats overnight, you’ll wake up to a creamy blank canvas oatmeal that you can customize to your heart’s content. This decedent breakfast is full of fiber, and thanks to its “blank-canvas” style prep-work, can be made with a number of ingredients. Add in some fresh fruit, a scoop of protein powder, mixed nuts, or a nut-butter and you’ve got a simple, healthy breakfast – perfect for those of us on-the-go. Our recipes call for almost a 2:1 ratio of oats to milk, but feel free to play around to achieve a texture that you love.
At FLIK, we’ve been playing with a number of creative combinations that we thought you might love:
Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats: Full of cinnamon and apples, topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar, these overnight oats taste like apple pie in oatmeal form.
Cocoa Banana Overnight Oats: Who doesn’t want chocolate for breakfast? Add a spoonful of almond butter for an extra oomph.
Orange Vanilla Overnight Oats: This recipe takes a little bit more time to make since it’s topped with an orange-vanilla compote, but it’s worth it. Seriously.
Carrot Cake Overnight Oats: It’s like dessert…for breakfast. Enough said.
Overnight oats are super-easy to prepare, portable, inexpensive and a delicious way to get your day off on the right foot.
