  9. 9. “ Overnight Swiss Oatmeal” Submitted by Jenna Weber <ul><li>This overnight oatmeal has been a creation of mine that I have enjoyed for years. Because of the Greek yogurt, </li></ul><ul><li>the bowl contains a whopping 18 grams of protein and, therefore, keeps you going for hours on end. The </li></ul><ul><li>inclusion of sliced almonds adds healthy monounsaturated fats, which help reduce the LDL cholesterol (bad!) </li></ul><ul><li>and raise the HDL cholesterol (good!). Plus, this oatmeal is perfectly suited for busy mornings when you just </li></ul><ul><li>don’t have time to stand in front of the stove or microwave cooking your oats. Here, the oats “cook” overnight in </li></ul><ul><li>the water as they soften, reducing the need for heat. This breakfast bowl can be ready in 3 minutes flat and is </li></ul><ul><li>even appetizing on hot summer days when a steamy bowl of oatmeal is not. I love to enjoy this oatmeal with a </li></ul><ul><li>hot cup of black tea. Enjoy! </li></ul><ul><li>OVERNIGHT SWISS OATMEAL </li></ul><ul><li>Ingredients: </li></ul><ul><li>3/4 cup Quaker Quick Oats </li></ul><ul><li>1/2 cup water </li></ul><ul><li>pinch of sea salt </li></ul><ul><li>1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt (such as Fage or Oikos brand) </li></ul><ul><li>1/2 banana, sliced thin </li></ul><ul><li>1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon </li></ul><ul><li>1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg </li></ul><ul><li>1 teaspoon pure maple syrup </li></ul><ul><li>1 tablespoon sliced almonds </li></ul><ul><li>1/2 small apple, grated </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Directions: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The night before, combine the oats and the water in a cereal bowl along with a pinch </li></ul><ul><li>of sea salt. Let sit overnight in the fridge. In the morning, take out the bowl from the </li></ul><ul><li>fridge and add the greek yogurt, grated apple, cinnamon, nutmeg and banana. Stir to </li></ul><ul><li>combine. Top with the sliced almonds and the pure maple syrup. Enjoy! </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>Jenna Weber Eat, Live, Run http://eatliverun.com/
