Some mornings you just don't have time to cook. If you anticipate one of those days on the horizon, plan to prepare this recipe by Jeff Taraday. Jeff explained why he calls his recipe a "power breakfast:"

 

 

Not only are oats amongst the healthiest options for breakfast (or as part of a post-workout meal), but they’re also some of the easiest things to incorporate in your diet. Oats are an excellent source of antioxidants, fiber, healthy fats, and protein. Studies have shown that oats have powerful cholesterol-lowering abilities, and they can help to stabilize blood sugar. Adding chia seeds to your oats may help to further stabilize blood sugar while adding in some healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
