Recipe: Bananas Foster Overnight Oats

As adults, we’re all incredibly busy. From trying to get the kids ready for work, to getting ourselves out of bed, to dealing with morning traffic,

most of us find it nearly impossible to sit down and have a good breakfast.

Putting “eating breakfast” at the bottom of our priority list.

But breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives us the necessary energy to move on with whatever the day holds for us. We’re able to concentrate better, make faster decisions, improve memory, and not feel so groggy around lunch time. Plus, if you skip breakfast, you’re more likely to reach for sugary & fatty snacks later in the morning. Eating breakfast also has many long term health benefits. It’s been shown that eating breakfast can

reduce obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity.

So next time you think of skipping breakfast altogether or reaching for a doughnut, remember how you’re setting yourself up for the rest of your day… and life!

But have no fear, because I have the perfect ultra delicious easy to make grab-n-go recipe for all you busy adults out there! Just because you have places to be,

doesn’t mean your health has to suffer.
