If you’re looking for a fast and easy “breakfast to-go” or a great snack I encourage you to try Overnight Oats:
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1/4 cup oats (quick oats work the best but you could use old fashioned or steel cut if you’d like)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 3/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 TBS chia seeds
- 1/2 cup berries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 TBS of honey!
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Mix all ingredients together, let sit in the fridge at least 8 hours, give a big stir and ENJOY! I know it doesn’t look as appetizing as the “before” picture above but don’t let that fool you – its delish!
You can prep 3-4 of these at once and have them ready to grab and go later in the week! I also found frozen berries work great because as they thaw in the fridge you get that extra juicy liquid/flavor added to the mix!
Alternatives for all my 21-day fixers:
- 1/4 cup oats 1 Yellow
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk – see below
- 3/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt – 1 Red
- 1/2 TBS chia seeds – see below
- 1/2 cup berries (fresh or frozen) – 1/2 Purple
- 1 TBS of honey!
As you may know, you can sub out 1 yellow per week for 16oz of almond milk. Given that 1/4 cup is only 2 oz almond milk you could technically have 8 of these to equal 1 yellow. I would try to adjust accordingly but unless I am following the diet very strictly I don’t count the 1/4 cup!
*Autumn came back after the launch of the 21-day fix and indicated that 1/2 cup almond milk would be a freebie
As for the chia seeds – these are not part of the nutrition guide for the 21-day fix. When I am following the 21-day fix guide, I sub ground flax seeds.
