Overnight Oats and Raspberry Chia P

I’ve been a bit MIA off late. January was a tough month. Post holiday blues, getting back to work after a nice long break and and add a burnt down workplace to the equation and you’ve got a stress eating mess. Next thing you know, its March!! I’m finally back after a long hiatus and things are now finally back on track. The most challenging part of not having a routine is the potential to slip up in terms of food. Poor preparation only gives rise to the opportunity to eat anything that comes your way to satisfy hunger pangs . This is when easy recipes that you can put together that don’t require much prep time comes in handy (especially in the mornings). I love a breakfast I can grab and go as much I would love a long sit down leisurely breakfast every morning, which let’s face it is a struggle most mornings.

I love how delicious and easy this oat and chia pudding breakfast parfait is. Throw the ingredients together in a bowl at night, pop it in the refrigerator, wake up in the morning layer it in a glass and you’re good to go.
