5. Make It Ahead

What's better than having delicious, comforting oatmeal in the morning? How about having it premade and waiting to be eaten! Make a big batch of steel-cut oats (seasoned with your favorite add-ins) on a Sunday and then keep it in your fridge. Each morning, simply spoon up a serving's worth in a microwave-safe bowl, add a tablespoon or two of water and then microwave until hot (1-2 minutes). It's a simple, tasty way to have your favorite breakfast ready and waiting any day of the week.
