5. Wait, what about breakfast! How about some NON COOK Overnight Oats!?
Janie from Hedge Combers once again comes through for us and shows us how to make a healthy breakfast ….. without cooking AT ALL!!!!! As Janie says…“Got an early start? A long journey? A lengthy hike out to capture the sunrise coming over that awesome ridge? If you can’t face, or don’t have time to cook up breakfast when the dawn chorus is singing, you need to master the world of overnight oats. For those that haven’t tried them before, overnight oats are made with porridge oats but rather than being cooked in the morning, they are left to soak, overnight. They are then eaten cold the following morning. With zero effort.” For the record….I LOVE ZERO EFFORT.
