Quick, easy, and delicious overnight oats

I’m all about quick and easy meals, especially my lunchtime meal when I break my 18 hour fast. I want something delicious that takes no more than 5 minutes to prepare. Most of the time I make a protein-enriched fruit smoothie, but I was recently inspired by my sister to try out overnight oats instead. I decided to do some experimenting and combine the oats with my newly-beloved chia seeds. The calorie count is higher than I normally have in my smoothies, but they’re packed with protein and slow-burning crabs so they keep me fuller even longer. Fuller longer means fewer urges to snack. 

Like my smoothies, I like to use mason jars. They’re cute and hold just the right amount. For overnight oats, I used pint-sized, wide-mouth Mason jars. They make it easy to mix ingredients and cuts down on the dishes!
