Overnight Oats are the perfect budget-friendly breakfast

Overnight Oats are the perfect budget-friendly breakfast

Buying microwave food may be a good choice but overnight oats are a friendlier option. 

College student or not, everyone can use a healthy, cost-conscious, easy-to-prepare breakfast. The fact you can make this the night before and eat it out of the fridge is especially nice for the student running late to a lecture or the busy family that doesn’t have time to make breakfast in the morning.

Many people add Chia seeds to their oats. Chia seeds pack a nutritional punch, and as long as you don’t overdo it, they don’t have an overwhelming taste.

The Mayo Clinic says, they “are high in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.”

High-fiber diets help normalize and maintain bowel health, lowers cholesterol, and aid in achieving a healthy weight.

The Mayo Clinic says, they “can help with weight loss.”

Chia seeds’ mild taste makes them an easy addition to almost any dish. They’re wonderful in overnight oats, but you could also sprinkle them into salad or cereal, incorporate them into bread dough, or add them into smoothies.
