Overnight Oats

Have you ever thought of the word breakfast? What does it mean? Well, breakfast is your bodies way of "breaking fast" , makes sense right? We sleep for 6-8 hours without feeding ourselves, so when we wake up, we're literally starving.  Breakfast fuels our bodies for the day, and gets the metabolism working.   I always stress the idea of cooking in bulk, this way you have no excuses in the morning.

Below is a great recipe that can easily be modified. Heat up a portion in the morning and you're good to go!

Overnight oats:

1 cut up banana
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 can pure pumpkin
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1/4 of melted coconut oil
1/4 cup of agave nectar
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1. place bananas on bottom of glass pan, layer honey and cinnamon on top, bake for 15 minutes on 350
2. place quick oats on top of bananas
3. in separate bowl mix: pumpkin, oil, egg whites, agave nectar,  cinnamon, and nutmeg
4. pour mixture over oats.
5. top with pecans
5. cover and bake for 40 minutes on 350

as you can see, this is easily modified, you can add different fruit, and you don't have to use pumpkin for your top layer, just compensate with more milk or egg whites.
