Yea, it really is tough to get things done when i’m trying to keep track of a million things at once, all on a timed schedule! Feels like my mind is just spinning in circles, so I ALWAYS have to have my breakfast prepped and ready–one less thing to worry about as you head out the door!
When it comes to breakfast, it HAS to be something sustainable, because my next meal won’t be going down till 4+ hours later and no one likes a hangry Haley! What I’ve found through a little trial and error, is that my meal must be balanced with carbs, protein and fat for me to make it till lunch, so there’s only a few options that I depend on.
My newest favorite? PEACHES & CREAM CHIA OVERNIGHT OATS. Definitely the best thing I’ve tasted, like… ever. It’s super easy, requires no hassle during the crazy morning hours, and it’s SUPER filling! Check out the recipe below, I think I hit the jackpot of breakfasts right here!
1/2 cup instant oats
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp almond butter
3/4 cup almond milk (sub: vanilla protein shake for a thicker blend)
vanilla coconut yogurt
sliced peaches & bananas
toasted oatmeal flakes (from TJ’s && they add MAJOR crunch factor!)
In an 8 oz jar, combine all ingredients until evenly distributed.
Then, fold in coconut yogurt and peach slices until just combined (you don’t want to crush the peaches)
Place sliced bananas on top, covering the surface of the overnight oats, then add on the toasted oatmeal flakes. The layering order is important, it seals the wet from the dry to preserve the crunch from the cereal!
Store in fridge overnight, and take it with you on-the-go or whenever you have a busy morning!
