Leslie Bonci, consulting nutritionist at Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, shares one of her favorite breakfast recipes for dancers: overnight oatmeal.


"Because my dancers are never consistent about their food—meaning they often skip meals—I'm adamant about having them eat enough to support their bodies. I recommend an overnight oatmeal. It's easy and cheap, and you can make a lot of it. It's low-calorie, and it contains fiber, so you can get through morning classes and not feel overly starved or overly stuffed. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your own flavor profile."

Ingredients:

1/2 cup dry oats

1/2 cup pumpkin

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

pumpkin spice seasoning

Directions:

Mix ingredients together

Serve immediately, store in refrigerator overnight or
heat up.

QAdd cinnamon, honey, maple syrup
or fruit, if you like.
