Breaking Fast with Overnight Oats

IMG_2054.JPG

I am LATE to this overnight game! Now that I’m full swing on Tru Haus, I find myself scrambling to use every minute of each day. Mornings are not as relaxed as they used to be, I’ve had to pick and choose what is going to be apart of my morning routine. In order to maximize my day, that means cutting out breakfast. Not entirely (of course!), but the sit down, 3 course morning won’t be around M-F, (at least for now).

Overnight Oats are a quick 7 minute prep the night before for a grab on the go breakfast. I take them to the office with me the next morning, still ensuring a nutrient dense, whole-food, satisfying breakfast!
