Breakfast and Brunches, Metabolism Boosters Week
Comment 1

Overnight Oats

As you’ve all been told at least twice a week your whole life, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When it comes to metabolism, this is totally true. According to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, eating breakfast can increase your resting metabolism by up to 10 percent.Β So, read below about why this recipe is convenient/fantastic/all you ever hoped or dreamed of and more and make sure you take heed.

I am undeniably a night person. So this new (new to me, anyway) ‘porridge that you don’t have to cook and you eat it cold’ thing is pretty much perfect for ensuring I have something in the fridge to suit my grab-n-go routine in the morning. Trying to leave the house by 8:15am and remember my own name is enough of a challenge, so making adequate time to eat a breakfast worthy of the weetabix adverts is just never going to happen. This has been my first attempt at overnight oats and I just used some stuff I had in the cupboard, I’d definitely recommend the fruit/nuts/seeds combo though to pack it with all that slow release business.

Makes 1 Jar/Bowl/Box

Rolled oats
Milk
Natural Yoghurt
1 tsp honey
Handfull walnuts, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds

You’ll notice that I haven’t included recommended amounts. This is because filling a jar or bowl by sight is way easier than weighing things out and I’m trying to encourage you to join the really quick breakfast making club, just go with it.

  1. Fill jar quarter of the way up with oats
  2. Take it to half way with milk
  3. Reach the three quarter mark with yoghurt
  4. Top with nuts, seeds and berries
  5. Drizzle some honey in there
  6. Mix it all up
  7. Refridgerate

It took me 10 minutes, its cheaper than buying something on the way to work and its something you can do the night before, always a winner. Give it a try!

Track recommendation for breakfast today isΒ Bamboleo by the Gipsy Kings because if that can’t wake you up, literally nothing will.
