We know a lot of our beautiful clients are busy mums and need quick and easy breakfast ideas. We are here to tell you; overnight oats are the perfect recipe! We are sure you will quickly fall in love and use this recipe as a daily staple!
One the best ways to start improving your hormonal health is to ensure you are having a well-balanced breakfast every day. This helps to balance our blood sugar and lower our stress hormones, aka cortisol. Whilst oats provide a great hit of fibre and carbohydrates, we need to make sure we are adding in some quality protein and healthy fats to ensure it is a balanced breakfast. A lot of recipes out there are missing this essential element. This is what is needed to balance out your blood sugar and keep you full and satisfied for longer.
We love this recipe so much because it is very versatile and can be modified with all sorts of flavours and nutrients, including switching out honey for maple syrup, adding in a scoop of your favourite protein powder, or switching out hemp seeds for something like flaxseeds. The key here is to have FUN with it, and provide your body with as much nourishment as you can. You can also make a large batch so it can last you the whole week!
