This time of year not only signifies the end of long summer days and warm weather, but also provides a gentle nudge reminding us to get back in the swing of things and “buckle down.” We all seem to get busier during these months and, not surprisingly, the healthy habits that were fostered during the summer seem to fall by the wayside.

But, healthy eating should be a focus all year long and doesn’t have to be a drag!

Our Overnight Paleo Porridge is a delicious mixture of flavors, textures, colors, and nutrients that hits the nail right on the head for satisfying everything we want on a cool, brisk autumn morning.

It’s packed with fiber and healthy fats to jumpstart your metabolism and fuel the day, but also easy enough to whip up in just a few minutes. Measure out your ingredients in 4-5 individual mason jars or other containers on Sunday night, add your favorite non-dairy milk the night before and — violà — you have an easy on the go breakfast or post-workout snack!

We’re not haters of heart-healthy whole grain regular oatmeal, but this combo actually gives you more bang for your buck (12 grams of fiber per serving vs. 8 grams and a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids!) and will leave you feeling satiated and energized far longer than carb-heavy oats will.
