>No excuses breakfast- overnight oats

Posted: June 21, 2011 in diet tips, recipes


If you’ve ever talked to Kyle and I about trying to lose weight these are 2 things we probably told you:

1. Eat breakfast
2. Eat more often

If you’re a breakfast skipper (tsk,tsk) you probably have very busy mornings.  It might be hard to squeeze in breakfast…but please try!!!  

You need to get your metabolism firing in the am. When your metabolism is firing, you are burning food and not storing it. Skip breakfast…your body will start storing fat because it thinks your starving!  Eat Papa eat!(Quick what movie is that from?)

The overnight oats I first talked about last week are a great way to get oats, fiber, and complex carbs quickly.

It takes 5 minutes the night before and these babies are ready to be gobbled with minimal am prep. This week’s addition of chocolate was phenomenal.  This is def jumping to the top of my breakast list.

Chocolatey Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or your milk of choice
  • 1T Cocoa powder
Stir and let sit overnight in the fridge.  In the morning I added: 

It was sooooo good!  It was chocolate…what’s not to love ladies?

Love and cocoa, 
Carissa & Kyle
