No-Cook Oatmeal with Almonds and Berries

Skip the stove and enjoy this hearty breakfast classic chilled. The no-hassle trick is to combine the ingredients the night before and let them mingle overnight in the fridge for a yummy wake-up call. One bowl is packed with cholesterol-lowering oats and beneficial fiber (not to mention a sweet and nutty flavor). Best of all, it will leave you feeling satisfied all morning.
