7 Kitchen Tricks for Better Health

1. Make cashew milk.

Forget almond; embrace creamy, nutty cashews, which are filled with good fats. It allows you to skip the straining process, meaning making homemade nut milk is as fast as throwing the packaged version in your shopping cart (and way healthier).

2. Make overnight oats.

We love a bowl of steaming hot oatmeal, but standing at the stove for 20 minutes while trying to get the kids out the door? Not so much. Spend a couple of minutes pouring ingredients into jars the night before, instead.
