Berry No Cook Overnight Oatmeal

Sharing is caring!

  One of my big downfalls is not being prepared for mornings. I am not a morning person and usually hit the snooze button on the alarm more times than I care to admit. Burning the midnight oil is a habit I haven’t been able to break. Some nights I am working on my blog and the next thing I know it 11 PM or 12 AM and my alarm will be ringing at 6 AM. Needless to say, my mornings turn into a flurry of activity without sufficient time to get everything done, before it’s time to run out the door. I am guilty of skipping breakfast or eating something that isn’t productive to my goal of living a healthier lifestyle. When I don’t eat enough calories in the morning, I seem to be hungry throughout the day, which can lead to poor food choices. I really want to make my mornings a priority and start with eating a healthy breakfast. I kept seeing the jars of pretty oatmeal all over Pinterest and decided to give them a try. I just made up my own recipe and the hubby and I both loved it.  It only takes a few easy steps and you can be enjoying a yummy nutritious breakfast each morning.

Step 1 – 1st layer oatmeal

 

 Step 2 – 2nd layer yogurt (add chia seeds or flax seed if you want more fiber) 

 

Step 3 – 3rd layer berries or fruit of your choice

 

Step 4 – squish it all down

 

Step 5 – add lid and refrigerate overnight

 

 Step 6 – enjoy!
