National Nutrition Month: Tip #23

Try this for breakfast: Overnight muesli! Before I go to bed, I mix about ½ cup rolled oats (uncooked) into about 1 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt. As it sits in the fridge, the oats get soft, chewy and thick. In the morning I add milled flax seed and fruit; grapes, pears or berries being my favorite but apples, bananas, pineapple, peaches or plums would be tasty too.

For those of you that are in a rush in the morning, this breakfast comes together so quickly. It would be easy to grab on your way out the door and eat at work. It is packed with protein and fiber to keep you full and satisfied throughout the morning.
