Devin's Note: A lot of people find it really tough to fit a nourishing breakfast into their day. Well, these overnight oats are the perfect solution! Not only are the delicious, but one serving has as much protein as a serving of chicken, and supplies good fat, omega 3 fatty acids, and 8 grams of fiber. Prepare this breakfast in the evening, and you won't find yourself tempted to grab a sugary muffin the next morning.

    AWESOME QUICK BREAKFAST OR LUNCH! I never used to take the time to cook oatmeal, now I don't have to! This recipe is easier to assemble when I changed the spices ( ginger, nutmeg and cloves) to the All Spice I use in Pumpkin Pie! I choose this as a quick lunch some days because it feels like I am cheating. I just add fresh blueberries and adjust the carbs and calorie count. Awesome on my days I workout in the afternoon! My co workers get jealous on Oatmeal Day now!
