Breakfast on the Go, (Almost) the Same as at Home

10 Mar

By now I don’t think it’s a secret that I love to cook and breakfast is no exception. I eat breakfast every single day. I don’t change it up all that much. I find something I like and stick to it for several months. Kind of like when I was eating breakfast burritos all the time. Lately the standard has been oatmeal and eggs.

Even when in a hurry I don’t skip breakfast nor do I grab anything processed. I am excited to share with you a way to have the same kind of breakfast you would have at home on the go: overnight oatmeal and hard-boiled eggs. (I didn’t say it was going to be glamorous.)

It’s simple you prepare the whole thing the night before in less than 15 minutes and as long as you don’t forget your spoon you can eat it anywhere. I think I’m the last person on the planet to discover this breakfast delicacy. I first read about it on Carrots and Cake or Kath Eats,  I don’t remember which one. After a year of reading about these women preparing this culinary treasure, I decided to give it whirl. All you have to do is soak your oatmeal overnight in a liquid of preference. I’ve been using unsweetened almond milk topped with a sliced banana and walnuts. The oats soak up the liquid and are just as soft as when cooked. Now there are no excuses for not eating breakfast.

Anyone have a another tip for taking a home cooked breakfast on the go?

    I still haven’t tried overnight oats but I always read rave reviews about them. I love oats but I think the consistency kinda skeeves me out since they would be soggy and mushy. But then again, I could fall in love with the idea so I should just suck it up and try it one day.

    I mix it up sometimes with taking a sandwich thin to work along with a tiny container of liquid eggwhites, nuling the eggs for a minute or two, adding a slice of ham and cheese and an instant breakfast sandwich!

    Never have I ever thought about nuking egg whites, but I could do that at work, on top of that we have a toaster oven at work so I could make egg white french toast! Thanks for the idea.
