Overnight oats (also called refrigerator oats). I've been living off them lately but they're lovely and you can make so many different combos/flavours.
The basic recipe is 1/4 cup old fashioned oats (or quick), 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (you can also use light ricotta cheese or cottage cheese), 1/4 cup milk or milk alternative (I actually do 1/3 cup).
But you can add anything to it you'd add to your oatmeal and yogurt. Just combine the night before and put it in your fridge overnight in a Tupperware container and tada! It's ready to grab and go in the morning and delicious! You can add flaxseed, oat bran, wheat bran etc. for added fiber. I like wheat bran because it doesn't add much to total calories but gives you a lot of fiber but I also use ground flax. You'll get plenty of protein from the Greek yogurt (or cheese) and milk if you use cow or soy. Add whatever fruit you like (unsweetened applesauce would work too) and spices, extracts, nuts. I add cinnamon and nutmeg to nearly everything.
Mine usually run about 200-250 cals (I eat a small breakfast because I workout in the AM) and with they added fiber, are very satisfying. If you need even more fiber, do berries.
I have been living on 2 pieces of toast with peanut butter for 3 weeks now for breakfast...I can't do it any more. total the calories are 310!!! I need something quick and get sick eating early.. I am out the door at 630 am..I found the carnation essentails which I like but they are 290 calories and then I need to eat like 2 hours later. they have a lot of protein but is there something else out there that comes in drink for. I need protein, fiber, but less calories. Can't do eggs I get sick from them lately. I would have to be able have breakfast while driving. Please Help!!!
