5 Reasons You Should Eat Overnight Oats
It is no mystery that eating a well-balanced breakfast is part of a healthy lifestyle. It will help you to stay full throughout your day, boost your energy levels, increase your productivity, and help you to create better eating habits. Eating a healthy breakfast consistently has also been shown to improve people's ability to maintain a healthy weight in the long-term.
Whether you are in a rush to get out of the house in the morning or you like to start your day of slowly without spending too much time preparing your breakfast, overnight oats are the ideal breakfast food. They are easy to prepare, do not require any cooking, are very healthy, and taste delicious.
What are overnight oats?
Overnight oats are oats that are soaked in a liquid overnight so that the oats can absorb the liquid. The liquid can really be anything. It can be milk, a milk-alternative like almond or soy, or water. Although, if you are going for taste, try to avoid using water.
What kind of oats can be used for overnight oats?
You can use any type of oats when preparing overnight oats. It is recommended that you use rolled oats or quick oats rather than steel-cut oats, as rolled oats and quick oats are much better at absorbing liquid.
How to prepare overnight oats?
The most common way to prepare overnight oats is to put equal parts oats and liquid. A good recommendation would be something like 1/2 cup of oats in 1/2 cup of milk. Put the oats in the fridge overnight with the liquid that you choose and let the oats soak 'em up.
Can you add toppings to your oatmeal?
Of course. Adding toppings to oatmeal, although optional, can really add a lot in regards to taste and flavor. To help you with some ideas for what toppings taste best, here are 4 really good ones:
- Blueberries + walnuts + agave
- Coconut flakes + pecans + lemon zest
- Green apples + cinnamon + maple syrup
- Peanut butter + banana + cocoa
You can add these to your overnight oats at night or in the morning, although be wary that some of the crunchier toppings, like granola, may get soggy overnight, so it is best to add them in the morning.

Flaxseeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, fiber, protein, b-vitamins, and a plethora of minerals!
3. Whey Protein
Whey is one of the best sources of protein available, which is why it has been added to the Overnight Oats shake. The reason it is such a good protein option is because it is a complete protein and contains all nine essential amino acids. As a result of being a complete protein, your body is able to utilize it to rebuild muscles and heal your body’s ailments quickly and effectively.

Can I have Oats Overnight with water?
It is highly recommended that you do not have Oats Overnight shakes with water as this will negatively affect the taste. Think of it like eating breakfast cereal with water, and how much better your favorite cereal tastes with milk!
Oats Overnight is designed to be consumed with milk or a milk alternative, such as soy, almond, coconut, rice, or hemp. When choosing a milk alternative, try and choose an unsweetened variety, as many brands have high amounts of sugar that will change the taste considerably.
Are there any alternative ways to eat Oats Overnight?
There are two main ways to eat Oats Overnight.
- The first way, which we recommend as the best way to consume Oats Overnight, is to mix milk or a milk alternative with the Overnight Oat individual packet in a blender bottle, shake briefly, and refrigerate overnight. Then, in the morning, shake it again for a couple seconds and enjoy!
- The second way is to mix the milk/milk alternative with the Oats Overnight individual packet into a blender bottle, shake briefly, and drink immediately.
Waiting overnight allows the oats and chia seeds to fully hydrate, softening the oatmeal and distributing the contents of the shake evenly throughout the bottle. Consuming the shake immediately after mixing gives a more textured, chewy oatmeal which many people have said they prefer!
Can I heat up Oats Overnight in the microwave?
It is highly recommended to not heat the Oats Overnight with the blender bottle in the microwave due to safety concerns. Although the oats taste delicious heated up, the pressure of the microwave can cause the bottle to explode. It is highly recommended that you consume Oats Overnight cold and chilled.
Are Oats Overnight gluten-free?
Every ingredient in Oats Overnight is gluten-free, but due to the fact that Oats Overnight is processed in a facility that handles gluten products, it can not be guaranteed that Oats Overnight is gluten-free.
Why Choose Oats Overnight?
There are a lot of reasons to choose Oats Overnight. Its combinations of convenience, affordability, and health make it an ideal choice. No more excuses for not having enough time to eat better.
Oats Overnight are so convenient that you do not even have to leave your house to go to the store! Simply order Overnight Oats online and go on with your day until they are delivered right to your door!
