ALEX CURTIS OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE

We always    hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it sets your day up for success, it gives you energy to get through the day without craving sugar rushes, and so on.  All of these statements are true, if you are doing breakfast right.  People always tell me that they have a hard time with breakfast for a variety of reasons; they aren't hungry in the morning, they don't have time to make something, they don't have time to sit and eat, they don't know what to have.  

I am about to tell you the most simple breakfast that is going to change your morning for the better.  It provides energy, protein, vitamins, and minerals! Now have some fun and enjoy.

OVERNIGHT OATS
All you have to do to whip up a bowl is fill a mason jar or Tupperware container with grains, toppings, add-ins and a liquid like milk or water. Then you throw it in the refrigerator overnight.

 

Here are some wonderful examples, the directions are the same for each recipe variation :)
