This is one of my absolute favourite breakfasts! I have it practically every morning and vary the fruits and nuts daily to add variety to my diet. You should prepare it the night before and leave it in the fridge, ready to eat in the morning. It is a prefect combination of proteins (nuts, yoghurt) and carbs (oats), which keeps you fuller for much longer. Oats are a great source of soluble fiber that helps to reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your total and LDL cholesterol.
30g of Oats
120g of low fat organic yoghurt/Greek yoghurt
60g fruits of your choice (try pomegranates, berries, peach/apricots or a mix!)
3-4 pieces of walnuts or almonds chopped, or 1 teaspoon of milled Flaxseed.
Mix the oats, yoghurt and fruits together and place in the fridge overnight. The raw oats will absorb the liquid from the yoghurt and soften, almost like they have been cooked. In the morning remove from the fridge and sprinkle with the nuts.
Tip: We love to add a little Cinnamon to the mix. It tastes delicious and its great for Balancing Blood sugar
