February is all about the heart, not just because of Valentine’s Day, but because it’s American Heart Month! This month try heart healthy foods such as fatty fish, oatmeal, and nuts. Foods that contain fiber and unsaturated fats keep your heart healthy and strong. In honor of this very special month, why not try this delicious Overnight Oatmeal recipe? It’s an easy, no-cook recipe that can make your busy mornings run more smoothly. All you need to do is combine the ingredients the night before, stick in the refrigerator, and then enjoy the next morning! The rolled oats contain heart healthy soluble fiber, which lowers cholesterol and clears arteries. Adding chia seeds to your overnight oats is a great way to add omega-3 fatty acids to your breakfast, making for an even more heart healthy meal! Dress up your overnight night oats with delicious and nutritious toppings like fresh fruit, nuts, or cinnamon! Check out these fun Overnight Oats recipes from the theyummylife.com below:

How to Prepare Overnight Oats

1. Assemble the supplies: you will need old fashioned rolled oats, greek yogurt, milk (skim, almond, soy, or rice is perfect!), chia seeds, and 1 cup mason jars. Also, any additional flavorings/toppings such as fruit, honey, nuts, or spices. 

2. Combine oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and desired sweeteners/additions.


3. Place lid on jar & shake!

4. Add and stir in fruits


5. Cover and store in refrigerator overnight, or up to 2 days. The chia seeds will expand as they absorb liquid, creating a fluffy texture!
