Sometimes we all get in a rut. That’s what’s happened to me with my breakfast line up. I love oatmeal and have it almost everyday, thus my problem. I do mix my menu up a bit with avocado toast or eggs but that’s more of a weekend thing. So, when I came across a list of all the ways you can make “overnight oats” I was intrigued. Most of the recipes had ingredients I like so, I thought I’d give it a try.
I decided on blueberries, since I already had some in the fridge, almonds and a few other extras. The big game changer for this recipe is using real greek yogurt. I used Chobani Plain, Non-Fat Greek Yogurt which is loaded with protein. After making and loving this new breakfast booster for the past four days, I’ve come up with a game plan – I’ll change up my fruit and nut combination every few days along with making a double batch so that I can just scoop out a single serving from a 2 cup mason jar.
Cheers to exploring new things, friends!

** I’m including this link to a Dr. Oz show I recently watched. It has lots of great information about greek yogurt that we as consumers probably aren’t aware of. I was very surprised and found it helpful. I hope you do to ~ Consumer Guide to the Best Greek Yogurt.
