Grab and Go Breakfast

Hectic mornings are no longer an excuse to skip breakfast, simply prepare your overnight oats the night before! Better yet, these tasty treats can last up to a week in the fridge — just make sure you choose your flavors and toppings strategically. Oats mixed with nut butters or jams can be kept longer. Add any crispy toppings just before serving in order to get that satisfying crunch!

For an oat-free breakfast, these creamy Fruit and Granola Parfaits serve as either a decadent breakfast or a delicious afternoon pick-me-up that you can make in advance and enjoy on the go as well!

Tips: Fruit gradually breaks down once it’s mixed into liquid, particularly banana or softer fruits. In other words, if you don’t want mushy fruit, make sure you eat them the next day or simply wait until right before enjoying to top with fruit! You can replace the almond milk with any other milk alternative such as oat milk, cashew milk or even regular milk if that’s what you prefer. When choosing your banana, the riper the banana the better because it will be sweeter and much easier to mash.

What Exactly is Quinoa?

Often confused with a grain, light and fluffy quinoa is technically a seed that brings nutty flavor to your meals! With loads of protein and fiber, it’s ideal for using in any meal from breakfast to dinner and even dessert. Try a combination of three different quinoa varieties in our Tri-Color Quinoa.

Quicker Oats

Don’t worry, you didn’t miss a step in the instructions — there is no need to cook the oats! Whether you use quick, old-fashioned or thick-cut rolled, the oats will absorb the liquid overnight and be flavorful and fluffy by morning! If it’s too thick for your liking, simply add an extra splash of milk!
