An Easy Breakfast Idea Loaded with Nutritional Benefits

Simplify your morning routine without skipping that all-important first meal of the day – just let your refrigerator do most of the work!

Overnight oats are becoming a popular breakfast option for several reasons: it’s a one-dish meal that’s easy to make, delicious and packed with energy-sustaining nutritional benefits.

Why It’s the Healthier Choice

These raw, soaked oats are the cooler side of oatmeal, and a healthy upgrade from its breakfast counterpart. Overnight soaking acts much like a long cooking process, breaking down starches and phytic acid, making the meal easier for your body to digest and absorb. And, it’s higher in resistant starches which can help control insulin levels.

With a little preparation the night before, you’ll have a hearty and healthy breakfast ready to eat the next morning to satiate your hunger and satisfy those taste buds. It’s a perfect grab-and-go treat for picnics, too!

Here’s the recipe for this meal mashup, a wise way to start your day off right.
