I discovered an overnight oats recipe and its benefits after reading a copy of a defunct running magazine several years ago. But I only started preparing it in 2018 when I desperately needed a quick yet healthy breakfast before going to work. There are millions of ways to prepare overnight oats and since we’re all in quarantine, I came up with my version of overnight oats with ingredients available in my kitchen.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp raisins or dried cranberries

Optional:

  • Frozen berries of your choice
  • Honey

Combine rolled oats, chia seeds, and raisins in a mason jar or glass container. In my case, I used an airtight BPA-free Tupperware and shook all the ingredients in the container. Then pour the soy milk and stir it a few times before sealing the container. Let the mixture sit in the fridge overnight. The oats are ready to eat the next morning. You can garnish it with frozen berries and some honey to taste.

There you have it, you now have a protein and fiber-rich breakfast. It is also best served with brewed coffee.

Gentlemen, you still need to groom yourselves regularly even if you work from home. Good thing that your wives cut your hair for free. Also, don’t forget to shave before meeting your boss and coworkers at a conference chat!

Nothing beats a clean-shaven look!
