When you crave a healthy and delicious breakfast but everything is last-minute, this is the one for you! Take 5 mins to mix it up the night before, let it infuse in the fridge as you sleep then wake up excited to eat it or even take it to work with you. Super-healthy, super-tasty and filling.
You can have this with any fruit, it doesn’t have to be apple it can be passion fruit, berries, banana, pear, dried prunes, papaya – whatever you love. Variety is the spice of nutrition!
Mix up everything apart from the fruit and flax. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight. In the morning add the fruit and flax.
How easy is that?!
Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.
Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!
Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!
Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen.
