I am what you may call a “morning person”. I love waking up with the sunshine, feeling that crisp morning air on my skin and getting on with my day.
That said, my pace is not what I would call quick in the morning. I pretty much shower, dress and walk out the door in about 30 minutes. This does not leave much (or any) time to eat breakfast which we all know is the most important meal of the day. So, for me, it all comes down to prep work. My quick overnight oats have been a real hit as of late and I thought I might share the recipe that sets me up on the right note to get on with my day.
Note: You will need a small jar or container.
1/2 cup of quick oats
2 finely sliced strawberries
(low glycemic and full of vitamin c)
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
(loaded with antioxidants)
1 tablespoon of shaved coconut
(great source of iron)
(vitamin e and B+)
1 tablespoon cocao nibs
1 teaspoon of honey
Once you have layered the ingredients the way that you like, pour in your coconut milk (or any milk) until all of he contents are just covered.
Overnight the oats will absorb the liquid. Just a tip: I like to pour in a teaspoon of honey at the end, and let it drip to the bottom of the jar. It is a delicious breakfast, healthy, nutritious and perfect for on the go.
