This is a quick, simple, and healthy recipe to deal with a busy morning schedule. Best for Him Team
Mornings can be hectic, where you have to accomplish your morning fitness regime, dress smart for work, leave early to beat the traffic, and ensure that you don’t miss out on any important messages from your office. In all this, there is only one thing that gets compromised and gets no brownie points for guessing, i.e., breakfast. However, there is a certain way to not let your first meal of the day get ignored with a seamless, easy-to-make, and easy-to-eat breakfast option, i.e., ‘overnight oats’.
Oats are a whole grain food that serves as a great source of the most essential carbs to keep you running the whole day and fiber to keep you satisfied until your next meal. Moreover, oats contain a higher portion of protein and nutrition than any other food. Thus, having oats decked out with fruits, nuts, and seeds is a great combination of health and taste.
1/2 cup of oats
3–4 cups of milk (of your choice)
Finely chopped fruits (choose your favorites)
A handful of nuts or seeds (customize to your liking)
Honey or Stevia sugar (for sweetness)
1/4 cup of yogurt (curd)
Prepare the base: In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, add 1/2 cup of oats.
Add Liquid: Pour 3–4 cups of milk of your choice into the jar with the oats.
Incorporate yogurt: Add 1/4 cup of yogurt (curd) to the jar. This will provide creaminess and a tangy flavor to your oats.
Include Nuts or Seeds: Toss in a handful of nuts or seeds. You can choose from options like almonds, chia seeds, flax seeds, or any other favorites. This adds a delightful crunch and extra nutrition.
Seal and Refrigerate: Close the jar with a tight lid and place it in the refrigerator overnight. The oats will absorb the liquid and soften, creating a creamy texture.
Mix and Add Fruits: In the morning, take the jar out of the fridge and give it a good stir to mix everything evenly.
Top with Fruits: Add finely chopped fruits of your choice. Opt for seasonal fruits, as they are not only delicious but also provide the nutrients your body needs based on the time of year.
Sweeten to Taste: If you prefer a sweeter taste, drizzle honey or add Stevia sugar on top of your oats according to your desired level of sweetness.
Enjoy: Your seamless overnight oats are ready to be enjoyed. You can savor this healthy and delicious breakfast while catching up on the news, checking emails, or planning your day.
Pair with Beverages: For an extra morning boost, you can pair your overnight oats with a glass of hot or cold coffee or a soothing cup of tea.
Snack Option: If you're looking for a healthy snack option during the weekend, these overnight oats can also satisfy your taste buds with essential nutrients.
With this simple recipe, you can have a nutritious and convenient breakfast even on your busiest mornings. Enjoy your happy, healthy breakfast!
