Overnight Oats with Raspberry and Cherry Chia Jam

Breakfast may be known as the most important meal of the day, but more often than not, we are missing out. Based on a recent poll, 53 percent of Americans miss breakfast at least once a week. And from that, 12 percent do not even bother to eat breakfast.

Overnight oats can help make eating breakfast easier and can save time in your morning routine. The best part about it? You can prepare it the night before and have it while you are heading out the door.

The raspberry and cherry-infused dish packs in the healthy antioxidants and vitamins. You can also expect high levels of fiber from the raspberries in the jam. And, because of the anthocyanins and fiber in tart cherries, the fruit can aid in weight loss by burning fat in our bodies.
