I am not a morning person. If I don't have my 8 hours of sleep, good luck trying to get me out of bed. But as much as I like my ZzZzs, I don't always get as many as I like. Those are the days where I especially need an easy and quick breakfast. If I haven't made my Overnight Oats the night before, then I turn to my other trusty favorite: Greek yogurt with berries and two hard-boiled eggs.

However, I've discovered a little secret for preventing this: Homemade Oven Baked Tortilla Chips. My theory with most junk food is that if you have to take … [Read more...]
I am not a morning person. If I had it my way, I'd never have to get out of bed before 9am... on early days. But alas, this is an unrealistic dream and each day I wake up much, much earlier than I'd like. To help coerce me out of bed, I've found having breakfast ready to go is a pretty good motivator. One of the easiest breakfasts to make ahead of time is Overnight Oats. Overnight Oats can be prepped days in advance and just hang out in your fridge … [Read more...]
