One of the comments I hear most often from clients is that they don’t have enough time in the morning to prepare a healthy breakfast. So, when I discovered this quick and healthy breakfast idea from The Yummy Life, I had to try out a version for myself in hopes of recommending it to others. I like the idea of this recipe for a few reasons: 1) it’s quick and can be prepared ahead of time; 2) there are endless variations so it can’t get boring; 3) when warm oatmeal isn’t appealing during the summer months, refrigerator oats are a nice option.
Recipes can be found on The Yummy Life. For the oatmeal pictured in the photo above, I used:
- 1/4 rolled oats
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/4 plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/2 banana, sliced
Simply combine all ingredients and place in the refrigerator overnight. I used cow’s milk from a local farm, but I think coconut milk would work nicely here too. If you wanted to add a sweetener, I’d go with honey or maple syrup.
