overnight oatsLet's face it, preparing a healthy breakfast is kind of a drag. It's time consuming, and more often than not, the food kind of sucks. That's why I've pretty much relied on overnight oatmeal to stay trim and slim for 12 years and counting. A lazy mujer's dream come true, overnight oats can be prepared and packaged at night, and will be ready to grab-n-go in the morning. The best part, they're completely customizable and totally portable, making them the ideal breakfast for lazy chicas who couldn't give two forks about whipping yet another boring egg white omelet for breakfast.
