Overnight Oats

1

A quick and easy breakfast idea that you can make the night before. This is my go to, as it saves time and is super delicious! I love it because it is filling and the best part is there’s no cooking! You can adjust the recipe to your taste, here are the basic ingredients:

  • Old fashioned rolled oats (I use gluten free oats)
  • Yogurt or milk (any type you prefer; normal, rice or any nut milk)
  • Chia seeds

Benefits: Oats are very nutritious as they are a good source of carbs and fibre , they are a healthy breakfast choice for weight loss and they are full of antioxidants.

Chia seeds are also high in fibre and antioxidants and they are great for your digestive health. They also boost your energy and metabolism, contributing to weight loss.

Plus toppings are a great way to sneak fruits into your diet!

My Favorites

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup of blueberries
  • Your choice of sweetener (I prefer to add raisins)

Directions: Just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl or a mason jar and leave it in the fridge overnight.
