Overnight Paleo Porridge 3 Ways

October 5, 2016

As we transition into fall, this time of year signifies not only the end of long summer days and warm weather, but also provides a gentle nudge reminding us to get back in the swing of things and buckle down. We all seem to get busier during these months and, not surprisingly, the healthy habits that were fostered during the summer seem to fall by the wayside. But, as Haley and Claudine, the ladies from the 10 Day Health Challenge remind us, healthy eating should be a focus all year long and doesn’t have to be a drag!

Our Overnight Paleo Porridge is a delicious mixture of flavors, textures, colors, and nutrients and hits the nail right on the head for satisfying everything we want on a cool, brisk autumn morning. It’s packed with fiber and healthy fats to jumpstart your metabolism and fuel the day, but also easy enough to whip up in just a few minutes. Measure out your ingredients in 4-5 individual mason jars or other containers on Sunday night, add your favorite non-dairy milk the night before, and violà! You have an easy on-the-go breakfast or post-workout snack!

We’re not haters of heart-healthy whole grain regular oatmeal, but this combo actually gives you more bang for your buck (12 grams of fiber per serving vs. 8 grams and a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids!) and will leave you feeling satiated and energized far longer than carb-heavy oats will.

Directions

  1. Combine the base ingredients together in a jar or other sealable Tupperware container and mix well until combined.
  2. Mix in the specific recipe ingredients, if desired.
  3. Let sit for at least an hour or overnight before enjoying.

Recipe Notes

  • For a warm version, feel free to add hot water and a drizzle of honey instead of dairy-free milk. Wait for 20-30 minutes and it should be ready to go.
  • Although it’s best to store the overnight oats in the fridge until you’re ready to consume, they can be out of the refrigerator all day, making them a perfect meal during work or travel when you’re not near a kitchen.
