Peach Raspberry Overnight Oats

Peach Raspberry Overnight Oats

Peach Raspberry Overnight Oats

Peach raspberry overnight oats is another easy quick breakfast recipe that showcases my favorite (I’m sure you’ve guessed by now) summer produce items peaches and raspberries.  Peaches and raspberries not only are delicious this time of year, they’re so good for you too.  Check out the beginning of my blog post Peachy Keen Protein Smoothie for some quick health info on peaches, they’re a pretty amazing fruit.  Old fashioned oats, or rolled oats also have some pretty amazing benefits too.  Old fashioned oats are a whole grain ingredient, and according to www.healthyeating.sfgate.com whole grains reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease.  Oats are fiber rich (adults should consume 20-35 grams of fiber per day) with soluble and insoluble fiber.  This improves metabolism which helps prevent obesity.

Not only does peach raspberry overnight oats have superstar ingredients it is also quick and easy to prepare.  I know I’ve stated this in my previous blog posts, but I don’t like spending my free time from work meal prepping.  Recipes that are quick and easy to prepare and delicious and uncomplicated to eat is what makes my life “smart and scrumptious”.  My easiest go to recipes for breakfast are usually protein shakes/smoothies and overnight oat bowls.  Overnight oat bowls only require you to combine the ingredients in a bowl and refridgerate overnight.  Then in the morning just grab a spoon and your oat bowl before you head out the door to attack your day!  Simple, easy and delicious!

Grocery List

Below is a chart of price comparison grocery stores. When reviewing this chart, keep in mind that the prices may have changed slightly from when I visited these stores. Please take into consideration when reviewing this chart that Whole Foods only offers organic options, and also offers coupons and cash back programs to its Amazon Prime members. The Target prices do not include the 5% red debit card discount, cartwheel offers (since these change weekly), or the $0.05 off per bag for any bags used from home. Also be sure to check Publix’s current bogo list. If you really desire convenience both Publix and Target offer delivery, and Target also offers buy online/store pick up too. This is a great option if you are trying to stay on a budget, because it prevents impulse purchases that can often happen from going into the store.
