Overnight oats are a great option when you need a handy breakfast to go but you still want to eat according to the Live Dirty, Eat Clean Lifestyle. Add omega-rich chia seeds into the mix, and you have an easy-to-make, portable breakfast. Combine the ingredients in a jar at night, then in the morning top with your favorite fruits and nutritional boosts. Eat right out of the jar or heat the mixture for a quick and warm meal.
