Every single morning, I forget how much you need to do before you leave the house with a baby. Lex wakes and I’m like a tornado around the house, racing around trying to not be late to work, gym, play dates, etc.
Seeing as my little munch is an absolute guts, I spend most of the morning in the kitchen prepping fresh snacks for her. Through the chaos there has been countless times I have forgotten to prepare anything for myself to eat. When Lex started solids and it wasn’t long before she reached the stage that I couldn’t eat anything in front of her without having to let her “help me” eat it. So I started making these oats and haven’t stopped since because we both get to enjoy this delicious, nourishinging breaky. The best part is -it take less than five minutes to prepare. And even less to eat, if your name is Lexington…
No pots and pans, no chopping boards, just prep and let it sit overnight.
- Rolled Oats
- Frozen Mixed Berries
- LSA Mix
- Chia Seeds
- Activated Nuts
- Shredded Coconut
- Grab a 400- 600ml jar and pop a few tablespoons of mixed berries at the bottom of the jar.
- Fill the remaining of the jar up with oats, leaving ¼ space for the toppings.
- Add another few tablespoons of frozen berries, LSA mix, chia seeds, activated nuts and shredded coconut.
- Then top the jar with filtered water. You can use almond milk if you please but I like mine with just water and Lex likes it too.
Because I have the memory of a gold fish, every morning I wake up to see oats in the fridge, I am pleasantly surprised! I feel like high fiving the me that made the effort to make them the night before. It’s a little win before your morning has even started and you’re onto more important tasks; Like locating that delicious cup of coffee!
