If your mornings are anything like mine, it can sometimes be chaos trying to get everyone out the door! Finding a healthy breakfast as a busy mom-on-the-go can be challenging!
If your kids are in public school there are folders to be signed, back packs and overdue library books to be found or if you homeschool, many times you’re rushing around trying to get snacks, water and sunscreen together for a day at a co-op event or field trip.
Usually it’s not until we’re settled in at the event that I realize I’m hungry!
In my rush to get everyone organized and out the door with full bellies, I sometimes forget to eat something myself!
In a perfect world we would of course have neatly lined rows of Pinterest-worthy mason jar overnight oats lining the shelves of our immaculate refrigerators, but in the real world, most times this is not going to happen.

My Personal Opinion on Oats Overnight
Oats Overnight taste really good my favorite of the three is the Strawberries and Cream. The flavor is very reminiscent of your standard packaged oatmeal, but you can definitely tell that they are comprised of higher quality ingredients.
My only complaint is the use of sucralose in the product. I am not a fan of artificial sweeteners, so I’d love to see a version that incorporates stevia or agave in addition to the maple sugar that they use.
Chia seeds are packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber and will keep you feeling full throughout the morning and like flax seeds are full of antioxidants. Maca root and the whey protein powder will provide the energy you need to power through your day!
