You will need:
An empty Jam Jar
Oats (I use Organic Oats from Holland and Barrett)
1 tbsp Chia seeds
1 tbsp Flaxseed
Greek Yogurt (I use low fat but you can use 0% if you like)
I ate three eggs for breakfast every day for about seven months when I first started training so it’s safe to say it will be a while until I am even able to look at one let alone eat one. I didn’t realise that breakfast is the one meal of the day where you can really enjoy yourself and load up with goodness to get you through your day.
A slight twist on Overnight Oats with the addition of a weeny scoop of Protein Powder and I give you “Pr-Overnight Oats”. The oats, protein powder and yogurt expand in your stomach making you feel fuller for longer meaning you are less likely to snack in between meals while the Chia seeds and flaxseed are packed full of fibre, Omega-3, antioxidants and minerals.
I prepare my Pr-Overnight Oats after I finish dinner by quite simply mixing the ingredients into my jam jar and adding yogurt until I’m satisfied with the consistency then pop it in the fridge ready for the morning. The great thing about this breakfast is when I accidentally sleep through my alarm, I’m able to grab it from the fridge, shove it in my handbag and devour it when I finally arrive at my desk looking hungry and disheveled.
I’m looking forward to trying some variations with different fruit so if you have any recommendations let me know in the comments below. Enjoy!
