Overnight oats have become an overnight success with many people lately. Overnight oats are basically oats that have soaked overnight to absorb the liquid you put into them. The benefits of oatmeal are well documented. It can help you lower your risks of certain cancers, help to lower your cholesterol, and can help decrease your risk of high blood pressure when consumed with an overall healthful diet that is low in fat. The fiber in oats also helps you feel full longer so they can help you lose weight and eat less. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy overnight oats:
1 . Use small jars or plastic containers for a grab-and-go breakfast. Use one part raw rolled oats and one part milk or yogurt. Add any toppings or spices you would like, such as honey, brown sugar or cinnamon. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
2 . Don’t add anything to oats you don’t want to get soggy, such as granola or crunchy cereals. You should add these just before eating.
3 . Oats can be eaten cold or warmed slightly in the microwave.
4 . Add fruit such as blueberries, strawberries or bananas. Get creative by adding a little chocolate or peanut butter.
