Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. I know that if I don’t start my morning off right, my stomach will be grumbling within an hour, and nobody wants that!
Things to include: complex carbohydrates, fiber, and protein. This awesome combo will keep you full longer and be digested by your body more slowly, which means a steady stream of energy throughout your morning.
Holly’s Overnight Oats
Choose a small container with a lid, such as a 2-Cup storage container or mason jar. In your container, mix together the oats, cinnamon, walnuts, and flax seed. Pour in the milk just to moisten (this will soften the oats overnight). Top with frozen berries, and plop/spread the yogurt on top. Do not mix! Place this in your refrigerator before you go to bed. Mix it all together in the morning and enjoy!
