Organization and prep is key in my Toronto household if we want to stay on budget and eat healthy foods. I meal prep most weeks for dinner, am hopeful that there will be leftovers for lunches (but I wasn't in luck today!), and try to have breakfast stuff on hand and sometimes even prepped ahead of time! One of my favourite breakfasts is a version on Bircher Muesli - what I consider the original overnight oats! This recipe lasts us most of the week - and when I'm running to work it's easy to throw it in a container and bring it to eat for breakfast. It's also easy to make gluten & dairy free if need be.
Bircher Muesli - adapted from a Bonnie Stern recipe.
2.5 cups oats (I use the organic sprouted oats from Costco)
2 cups frozen or fresh berries (again I buy them frozen at Costco)
1 apple, grated
3/4 cup orange juice (I just used extra almond milk last time I made this since I often don't have juice in the fridge)
1/2 cup milk (cow or any alternative will do here)
3/4 cup yogurt (if I don't have it on hand, I just use extra milk)
Mix all together and keep in the fridge overnight - then enjoy all week long!
