High Protein Overnight Oats for Better Energy
One of the most common breakfast issues I encountered with clients back in my nutritional consulting days was a lack of protein. Often clients would tell me they either skipped breakfast altogether or gobbled down toast, a muffin, a bowl of cereal or some other carbohydrate-centric food.
While there is nothing wrong with carbs at breakfast, in fact complex carbohydrates are recommended (think whole grain and unrefined), it’s so important not to forget the protein! This list of overnight oats is perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time to prepare a balanced meal in the mornings but want the energizing, blood sugar stabilizing benefits of protein.
Check out these delicious, easy, and healthy recipes that will give you that perfect boost of protein power in the A.M., and keep you energized for hours after!
