Healthy Weekend Meal Prep: Breakfast

I make all my food for the week on Sunday afternoons. And honestly it is the part of the weekend I look forward to the most. During the week I spend some time on Pinterest looking at healthy recipes that I might want to make, save them, and then plan to grocery shop Sunday for the ingredients. I am going to start a series on this blog that breaks down the different meals you can meal prep during the weekend. This week we will focus on a healthy breakfast that you can make in bulk on Sunday to ensure you are starting your mornings off right during the week. I have made each of these recipes and can guarantee that they past the two crucial tests, taste and satisfying. 

Overnight Oats 

This is one of my favorite breakfasts to make for the week as it’s quick, easy, and can be customized to suit you. I have two go-to recipes for overnight oats that I promise wont disappoint. 

Blueberry Almond Butter

Ingredients:

        4 cups Old Fashioned Oats (not quick)

        2/3 cup Almond Butter (no added sugar)

        1 ½  cup of fresh or frozen blueberries

        7 cups Almond Milk (or liquid of choice)

        1/3 cup R.W Knudsen Organic Apple Juice

        5 tbs chia seeds

        5 tbs flax seeds

Directions:

Add oats, chia seed, flax seed, almond butter, ½ cup blueberries, and almond milk into large container to store for the week or into individual mason jars. In a small saucepan add 1 cup of blueberries and 1/3 cup apple juice. Simmer over medium heat until liquid evaporates, blueberries break down, and it thickens. Once it thickens remove from heat and cool in the fridge. Once it has cooled a bit, combine it with the overnight oat mixture. Stir until everything is combined. Servings: 5
