Happy New Year to all!
With the excesses of the holidays in the rearview mirror, why not make today the day to start your new healthy resolve?
Let’s begin with breakfast!
Maybe next week, you can eat more greens; the following week, how about a new exercise program?! New beginnings can be so exciting!
This super easy breakfast recipe can help make small changes deliciously sustainable. It’s sweet (without sugar), and full of health-enhancing fiber and antioxidants.
To prepare, use a one-cup glass jar for each serving (or even drinking glass, if you can cover it with plastic wrap). Think about making extras, too, for the week ahead. Tightly covered, they’ll stay fresh for several days, and it’s such a great feeling to know breakfast is waiting for you on a busy morning.
BLUEBERRY PEACH OVERNIGHT OATS
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup frozen peaches, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon raisins
1 tablespoon raw almonds or toasted slivered almonds
Add rolled oats and cinnamon to a small jar. Carefully add enough almond milk into the jar to barely cover oats. Top with frozen fruit, raisins, and nuts. Cover jar tightly, and refrigerate overnight (or longer).
In the morning, empty jar into another bowl, and warm briefly (if desired), and enjoy!
