I know by now you are so tired of hearing that you shouldn’t skip breakfast. Wait, don’t roll your eyes just yet. Skipping breakfast comes with greater risks than just a growling stomach.
What if I told you that eating breakfast could lead to more weight loss?
In one recent study, people who ate breakfast as their largest meal lost an average of 17.8 pounds over three months. The large-dinner group only lost an average of 7.3 pounds each over the same time period. (source)
I find that the common reason women skip breakfast is because they do not have enough time in the morning. Either they don’t have the time to eat breakfast at all or they are not eating a balanced breakfast before they start their day.
What is balanced? Well, a protein (yogurt or eggs), a complex carbohydrate (oats), and healthy fat (chia seeds) is truly considered balanced. Your body digests foods in a particular order. Carbohydrates first, protein second, and fats.
This means, grabbing a banana on the go isn’t enough to fuel your body for an extended period of time. But how does a woman who is on the go and trying to find balance master breakfast? Have you tired overnight oats yet?
You can prep multiple overnight oats on Sunday evening or the night before you plan to eat them for breakfast.
Overnight oats are more than your plain-Jane milk and oats you are used to as a young girl. They are also better than your Quaker maple and brown sugar or peaches n cream, sugar packed instant oats you find at your local grocery store.
Overnight oats are a great way to incorporate fresh fruit, dairy-free yogurt, and extra essential healthy fats. There are so many different recipes to try, too. This means you can enjoy different flavors throughout the week so you do not get bored. Breakfast ready to grab and go! Ready to try your hand at overnight oats yet?
This simple Peaches ‘n’ Cream Overnight Oats recipe has dairy-free coconut milk yogurt, fresh organic peaches, chia seed, raw honey, and almond milk. Sweet and refreshing to grab and go in the morning.
Let me know what you think! Enjoy!
