FIG, COOKIE & CREAM OVERNIGHT OATS

Mornings can be hectic and chaotic, and for many of us its a struggle to fit in a well balanced breakfast. Whether you are a personal trainer like myself where your mornings start before sunrise or you spend a large portion of your mornings making sure your kids are filled with nutrition for the day. Its easy to find yourself grabbing a double cap and waiting till later that afternoon to nourish yourself.

I’m sure you have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I’d say that they ALL are (basically because I love food a little too much), but it’s true, breakfast is essential. Eating breakfast increases your metabolic rate, regulates blood sugar, fuels your mind and body for the day ahead and promotes productivity. Skipping breakfast will likely encourage you to eat more later in the day and will promote mid-morning hunger.

If you haven’t heard of overnight oats before, my friend where have you been?

This breakfast is quick, delicious and healthy, and by using my favorite Cookies & Cream protein powder from Cipla, I have successfully transformed my everyday breakfast into a desert!
