strawberries and cream overnight oatmeal

I love oatmeal. Apple cinnamon, maple brown sugar, blueberry… and my love of oatmeal extends to other forms such as in this and this. But when the weather gets sweltering outside, sometimes the last thing I want for breakfast is a hot bowl of oatmeal. That’s why overnight oatmeal is perfect. There’s no cooking involved and it’s eaten cold. I’ve had my family try these to mixed responses (I think it’s a temperature thing) but I absolutely love them. MmMmm more oats for me!

It also incorporates one of my new favorite ingredients: chia seeds. Yes, chia seeds as in those used for Chia Pets. But it turns out that these seeds are incredibly good for you. They’re full of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and calcium. And since they absorb lots of water, they help you feel fuller. Fantastic, right?

Ch-ch-ch-check ’em out.
