THE RECIPE

“I Don’t Have Time for Breakfast” Make Ahead Oatmeal

Nutrition has never been so easy… or delicious!

Whether you’ll be cranking away at the office or relaxing at the beach, start your day off right with a healthy, nutritious and incredibly easy breakfast. Combine your oats, almond milk, shredded apple, Greek yogurt and chia seeds the night before so your breakfast will be ready to grab and go in the morning. By mixing everything up in advance, you not only save time in the morning, but also allow the oats and chia seeds to soak up the liquid and flavor of the other ingredients for a smooth, cohesive dish. Chia seeds especially can soak up 9-10 times their weight in water overnight, which in turn keeps you full longer. Dubbed the health food of the year, these extraordinary chia seeds pack a staggering amount of nutrients for their teeny size, bringing you more omega-3s than a piece of salmon, and plenty of calcium, iron, and fiber. Top your ready made oatmeal with a handful of sliced almonds and pomegranate seeds for an extra boost of antioxidants and crunch for a delicious breakfast that will keep you satisfied until lunch!
