BERRY VANILLA OVERNIGHT OATS

BERRY VANILLA OVERNIGHT OATS

 

Rolled oats have a wonderful, wholesome flavor and hardy texture.  They provide you with lots of complex carbohydrates, fiber, and even a little protein, so they're sure to satisfy.  Soak them in a bit of almond or coconut milk overnight and you’ll wake up to a delicious, healthy breakfast that is ready to grab-and-go. 

 

 

OATS CONTAIN LOTS OF BENEFICIAL MINERALS, LIKE SELENIUM, A POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT THAT ALSO PLAYS A REALLY IMPORTANT ROLE IN THYROID HORMONE PRODUCTION.

 

 

Magnesium is another essential mineral found in oats, which is often deficient in the modern diet and vital for hundreds of metabolic reactions throughout the body.  Due to the carbohydrate-rich nature of oats, it’s really important to include some healthy fats with them in order to slow your body’s absorption of these sugars and disperse that energy over a longer period of time.  Almond butter is the perfect way to do that in these overnight oats, adding flavor and heart-healthy mono and poly-unsaturated fats. 

 

 

 

 

Berries are a great topping since they’re overflowing with antioxidants and fiber while adding just the right about of natural sweetness (low glycemic). Blackberries are especially rich in compounds called anthocyanins that have been found to have anticancer and anti-aging effects.
