My Go To Power Breakfast

Updated: Nov 25, 2022

I'm a big fan of overnight oats! They are great for student athletes, those who work long days, people who travel a lot, and anyone else who is constantly on the go. There is no excuse to skip breakfast. A huge part of committing to a healthy lifestyle lies in the preparation. It can sometimes get mundane, but I'd much rather spend a few minutes every night making this power breakfast then going for a quick bagel, muffin, or breakfast cereal that lacks nutritional density and is full of empty calories. I make this every night and it's all prepped to go and ready to eat in the morning. I have been eating this basically everyday for months and I still haven't gotten tired of it. This breakfast fuels my morning workouts and keeps me full all the way until lunch!

If you prefer your oats HOT:

If I have extra time in the morning to eat at home I will do a similar version! Instead of eating this cold I will heat it up in the microwave!

* Base- rolled oats, chia seeds, flaxseed, hemp, maca

* Add almond milk, mix with the base, then put in the microwave for 1:45-2 minutes then add toppings such as fruit, peanut butter, granola, and dark chocolate chips!

Ingredient Benefits

Rolled oats- Nutrient dense, rich in carbs, fiber, and antioxidants

Unsweetened almond milk- Low calorie, 0 grams of sugar, high in Vitamin E, source of calcium and Vitamin D

  • Opt for an unsweetened version (no added sugar). Check the label by looking at the sugar content and ingredients!

Chia seeds- Source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, antioxidants, iron, and calcium

Maca powder- Source of carbs and fiber, high in Vitamin C and iron, may improve exercise performance - specifically of the endurance type

Hemp seeds- Contains all essential amino acids - making it a complete protein

Ground Flaxseed- Source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, rich in antioxidants

Peanut Butter- Full of good heart-healthy unsaturated fats, source of protein and magnesium

  • Opt for a peanut butter with 1 ingredient... PEANUTS! Stay away from peanut butters that are high in added sugars, oils, and salt.

Most of these can be found at any grocery store (definitely all at Whole Foods) but if not they are all on Amazon!
