Overnight Oats


I think we all set our alarm clocks with good intentions. We dream of waking up an hour earlier to go for a run, get some work done or prepare veggie juices for the day. Unfortunately, there’s days (perhaps the majority of them?) where we hit snooze, tell our intentions to kindly stop coming in the way of our sleep and hit and flop back onto the pillow.

For those days, there’s overnight oats: breakfast in a jar that’s sitting and waiting for you in the fridge. Seriously, you have to do nothing but eat it. That is your only task.

Plus, it’s super versatile. Eat it cold, warm it up and throw in a different mix of toppings each time. You can’t lose.
