Morning Oatmeal Is Waiting In The Fridge From The Night Before
Members Were Sparked
To save myself time in the morning I started to put my 1/3 C of oatmeal, banana, three frozen strawberries, 1 tsp ground flax, 1/3 C. low-fat milk, and 1/3 C water together the night before. Now I just throw it all in the microwave when I get back from the gym and it's a perfect temperature when I get out of the shower. I just throw on a big heaping tsp of cinnamon and I'm set until noon.

This may seem like a no brainer, but it saves me a ton of time. When I make my breakfast in the morning, I prepare two servings of oatmeal. I eat one and put the other in the fridge for the next morning. Saves me some time which I always seem to be short of as I am rushing to work in the morning
For fresh bread in the morning without too long a wait let it rise the night before, then leave it in the fridge overnight to stop the rising. Take it out in the morning and go on where you left off: it saves a lot of time.
Each night before I go to bed, I fill my water bottle for the next day and stick it in the fridge. I also fill up sippy cups for my kids so they're ready in the AM, and pull out what we're having for breakfast (I'll put the Cheerios box on the counter, the PB jar, and my pkg of English muffins). Before crashing for the night, I lay out my workout clothes or pack my gym bag, depending on my plan. It takes the guess work out of weekday mornings!
