I’m a HUGE fan of overnight oats, and they are something I regularly recommend to my clients.

Why?

Because they are full of great nutrients to help balance your hormones, blood sugar, moods, weight and more.  PLUS they are so quick & easy that you just can’t go wrong.  I make a bunch at the beginning of the week and put them in my fridge, then I just grab one out each morning and eat.

Yep, it’s just that easy!

Here are 5 of my favorite recipes, and I know you will love them too.

*Note, you can eat them cold, or you can heat them up in the morning if you want something hot in your belly.  Steel cut oats are also fine to use, they will just give you a crunchier consistency, which is great too!
