All meals are important but a nutritious breakfast is a fabulous way to start the day. Breakfast is literally about breaking the fast and giving your body energy to take on the day . One of my go to breakfasts is overnight oats because I throw everything in a glass container the night before and I wake up to a delicious, flavorful breakfast with all the macronutrients! Complex carbs from oats and blueberries, protein from milk, yogurt, chia and peanut butter, and healthy fats from the pb and chia seeds
1 cup oats
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp peanut butter, or nut butter of choice
Liquid stevia to taste
1/2 cup blueberries, or fruit of choice
Combine oats, milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, nut butter, and a few drops of liquid stevia. Throw in the fridge overnight. Heat or enjoy cold and top with blueberries. Enjoy!
