No Time for Breakfast? Here's Your Solution!
There are lunches to pack, dogs to feed, laundry to do and a workout class to get to....our mornings can be a bit hectic! Most of the time, a well balanced breakfast is what gets lost in the shuffle. I wish I was a better planner and had time to make one of Cindy's delicious egg white with sundried tomato, asparagus and turkey sausage omelettes. She can whip one of those up in no time flat and she makes it look so easy! She is Wonderwoman in the kitchen!!!! I, on the other hand, do not possess that gift. So.....I rely on our overnight oat recipe to get me through the hectic mornings. I've posted several recipes for overnight oats already, but I wanted to just get back to the basics with this post. This recipe is the basic version you need for the perfect protein and carb breakfast meal. You can add various ingredients to change it up, but this is the base from which you will start. And as those of you who know me know.....I think this recipe is GENIUS-tee hee!!!
Ingredients for 3 servings:
- 1 vanilla premier protein shake
- 1 cup rolled oats (regular oats absorb more of the liquid/quick oats don't absorb as much)
- 153 calories/serving
- 16 g protein/serving
- 18 g carbs/serving
- 1.3 g fat
Add all ingredients to a jar. Stir or shake and put in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, scoop out half of the jar into another bowl and voila....you've got a well balanced breakfast! You can warm it up in the microwave or eat it cold. If you're anything like me, you are in such a rush you take the jar with you in the car with a plastic spoon!
- pumpkin pie spice
- pumpkin pure
- smashed banana
