Wake up healthy with Brave Overnight Breakfast

It’s hard to be on top of things in the morning, and even after coffee, making a healthy breakfast sometimes gets pushed to the “next time” wish list as you grab a banana and head out the door. When you’re traveling, it can be even more difficult to scout out the places where you can power up for the day in a healthy way.

When you have a packet of Brave Overnight Breakfast, all you have to do is open up the refrigerator, grab a spoon, and that’s it.

The foundation of the breakfasts are organic oats, chia seeds, and hemp hearts, and then raw fruits, nuts, and spices are added. They’re all plant-based, high in protein, but without preservatives, sugar, or soy. And they’re extremely easy to make.

Before you go to bed, empty a breakfast packet into a jar or similar container. Then add 3/4-1 cup of milk (of any kind) or even water, if you’re traveling and don’t have an ample supply of milk. Shake up, or stir, and then refrigerate overnight. That’s it. No cooking, and no other additions needed.

Wake up, open the refrigerator, and eat. If you prefer your breakfast hot, just warm it up in a microwave or on the stove before eating. You won’t need to snack before lunch.

My favorite is the new peanut butter banana flavor, with gluten-free rolled oats, black chia seeds, dried bananas, pecans, help seeds, peanut flour, dried strawberries, sea salt, and monk fruit extract powder.

Brave packaging is made from paper with a thin plastic interior. No heavy foils or additional plastics.

Overnight Breakfast packs come in four flavors: peanut butter banana, toasted coconut mango, apple spice, and mocha chip. You can buy then in bundles ($25 for 5 breakfasts, $47.50 for 10 breakfasts, $67.50 for 15 breakfasts, and $90 for 20 breakfasts), in mixed-flavor bundles, or by subscription (so you always have a supply on hand) on the Brave site.
