Overnight oats are a great choice for busy mornings. Do the prep the night before and wake up to this sweet-and-salty breakfast.

Oats can be a helpful food in the battle against the stomach woes of pregnancy. The soluble fiber in oats can help reduce nausea and prevent constipation.

Since oats digest slowly, this breakfast can help you keep your energy up and your blood sugar levels stable. Soy milk and peanut butter add plenty of protein to support tired muscles. The finishing touch of fresh fruit provides inflammation-fighting antioxidants.

This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, or more to make multiple servings for several days. You can find 16-ounce jars with lids at most grocery stores.
