Quaker Oats

22:42:00


Oh, breakfast!? According to nutritional experts, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But in reality, for people like me who have children with an intense daily family routine and who also go to the gym before starting work, it’s a meal that usually consists of something rushed and swallowed up before you leave the house.

I'm a busy mum, it's nearly impossible to find the time to sit down properly at the table to enjoy breakfast, especially during the week. The limited time I have in the morning consists of rushing from one task to another and I barely have any spare time to think about breakfast.

My usual breakfast diary

My alarm clock wakes me up at 6:30 in the morning and I get up to take a quick shower, get dressed, prepare all the pack lunches and breakfast for my two daughters and my husband. I usually have about 1:30 min to be ready to leave the house. 

Many times, I look at the clock and it is already 8:10 am. It’s already the time to leave the house and I am usually late. I have to grab whatever I can in my hands to take my children to school and eat my “breakfast" (i.e. a banana, a boiled egg and a coffee in the car) on my way to the gym or work. I know that it’s not the best way to start the day.

In fact, I often feel lethargic early in the morning mainly because what you eat for breakfast will determine your body’s energy source for the first half of the day. 

Therefore I have decided to look for new ways to plan my breakfast better. 

Breakfast idea 



Luckily, one day I was searching through the internet and I saw some amazing Quaker Oats overnight oat recipes. I fell in love with the jars that you make the oats in; they looked like a jar of goodness! The recipes are also the simplest and easiest choice for a healthy breakfast. You just need to soak the oats in the fridge overnight, ready for the following day.

I was so excited that I couldn't wait any longer. I rushed to the shop to get everything that I needed .....got home......and all done within 5 minutes ready for the following morning!

The following morning 

I was feeling over the moon. The perfect way to start the day with a fresh and enjoyable breakfast ... finally, after years I had time to enjoy my breakfast in the garden, sitting down properly at the table, in the stunning spring day, enjoying my Quaker kiwi coconut overnight oats. This was my GLOAT MOMENT.



Overnight Oats: how to make



What I think makes overnight oats so special are the layers. It’s not essential, but it adds that extra ‘wow’ to your breakfast.

If you would like to know how to make the perfect overnight oats, you should check out my tips below:

* Prepare the overnight oats the night before and ensure that you place the jar in the fridge to have a better taste in the morning.
* It's better to use a glass jar with a lid on. 
* Soak one part oats with one part liquid. The liquid can be milk, almond milk, yogurt, etc.
* Keep it in the fridge.
* You can change the ingredients to make it unique. You can use strawberries, banana, kiwi, mango, avocado, cocoa, natural yogurt, coconut milk, chia, linseed, oats, chestnuts or whatever your imagination allows!
