Meal Prep a Week of Protein Smoothie Overnight Oats, Packed With Nutrients and No Added Sugar

While prepping my overnight oats for the week, I had a revelation: why not use a green protein smoothie as the liquid instead of just plain almond milk or soy milk? I know green oatmeal looks a little weird, but I promise, just like those green smoothies you love, you can't taste the spinach at all!I used a basic smoothie recipe made with spinach, banana, and vanilla plant-based protein powder. If you just can't do the green color, add blueberries or chocolate protein powder to your smoothie. Each serving of this creamy oatmeal offers 15.7 grams of protein and a filling 13.1 grams of fiber.This recipe makes five servings for the week, but don't worry - the fifth jar tastes just as fresh and delicious as the first. It has a very subtle sweet vanilla flavor with just 8.2 grams of sugar, but if you want yours sweeter, feel free to add a little maple syrup.You can enjoy your overnight oats cold, but I actually preferred warming mine up in the microwave for two minutes.

How Old Do You Have to Be to Compete in the Olympics? It Depends on the Sport

With the Summer Olympics fast approaching, all eyes are on the Olympic qualifiers in the next few months. For some athletes, though, it's not just a matter of meeting the athletic threshold to compete, but the age guidelines as well.

According to the International Olympic Committee's official rules, there is no single age limit for the Olympics. However, each sport's international regulatory body governs the rules of their respective sports, including age eligibility. Some federations allow very young athletes to participate in the Olympics. For example, 11-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown is well on her way to qualifying for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Neither skateboarding nor surfing - two sports that will make their debut at the Games this year - carry age minimums.

That's not the case for a number of other sports, though the age minimums are generally very low. Olympic divers must be at least 14 years old, for example, while in gymnastics, the minimum age for both the Olympics and the World Championships is 16. Back in 2015, an up-and-coming Laurie Hernandez was the reigning US junior champion, but wasn't eligible to go to Worlds (she turned 16 in time for the 2016 Olympics, though). That wasn't the first time a skilled gymnast had found herself on the wrong side of the age requirement: Nastia Liukin was too young to compete at the 2004 Olympics, but won gold in the all-around in Beijing four years later.

Although many sports have an age minimum, there's only one so far that caps entries with an age limit. The official qualifying guidelines for boxing at the 2020 Olympics stipulate that athletes must have turned 18 before the end of 2019 to be eligible, and anyone who turned 40 before Jan. 1, 2020, will not be allowed to compete.
