I’ve been trying to find ways to save time in the morning, and make more time to go for a quick run. I’m already in the habit of waking up before the sun rises; but I somehow never seem to have enough time to enjoy breakfast. I usually eat breakfast in the car, on the way to school or clinicals.
My solution to my time dilemma…preparing breakfast the night before.
Here is a jar of Soaking Oats. It sounds weird, but trust me, they’re great! No more partially cooked oats, eaten hastily on the way to school. Soaking oats overnight makes for a super fluffy bowl of oatmeal. Making them is a snap, and they can be microwaved while I’m in the shower. Bonus!
Here’s an eyeball recipe:
1/2 cup of Rolled or Steel cut oats (not the instant kind)
1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar
1/4 cup of half & half or milk
1/4 cup of water
Place in a container and give a shake. Leave in refrigerator overnight.
Microwave for 1-2 minutes
*top with whatever suits your fancy. I love using berries and walnuts.
