Do you take time to meal prep on the weekend? For a few weeks now I’ve been spending an hour or two on Sunday (sometimes Monday) to prep a few foods that my family can then eat during the week. I focus on make ahead recipes and simple things, like prepping fruits and vegetables.
A weekly food prep session is a bit of a time investment on the day that you do the prepping, but it saves time throughout the week. It also helps you to eat healthier, since you have nutritious foods ready to go when you need them.
If you’re interested in seeing what kinds of foods I prep each week, you can follow me on Instagram – I always share a photo and the recipes there.
I usually focus some of my meal prep efforts on breakfast, because it’s so important to start the day with a nourishing meal. Overnight oats are one of my favorite make ahead breakfasts because they take so little time to make!
These Chia Almond Butter Overnight Oats have the best flavor, thanks to maple syrup, vanilla and almond butter. REAL® Seal milk, Greek yogurt and chia seeds make these hearty oats extra creamy and delicious.
Do you see the REAL® Seal in the above photo? When you see that seal on a dairy product at your grocery store, you know it’s made from real dairy from cows on U.S. dairy farms. One of my favorite REAL® Seal products is Fairlife milk, because it’s both high in protein and low in sugar. I used Fairlife milk in these overnight oats, and it was delicious in this oatmeal. REAL® Seal dairy products are packed with essential nutrients, to help you start your day on the right foot.
These protein-packed Chia Almond Butter Overnight Oats will keep you full until lunchtime! My other favorite protein-rich overnight oats are these Strawberry Chia Overnight Oats. If you haven’t tried them yet, they’re a great make ahead option and can be made with frozen blueberries or raspberries year-round. And if you’re a fan of freezer-friendly make ahead breakfasts, you need to give these Lemon Greek Yogurt Pancakes a try!
You can make a single batch of these Chia Almond Butter Overnight Oats the night before you want to eat them, or make a big batch on Sunday to eat for breakfast for the next few days. The oatmeal will last in your refrigerator for three days.
