Even though it definitely doesn't feel like spring yet, we're so ready to trade in porridge for something fresher. Join us and start your day with a stacked bowl of fruit-filled overnight oats instead!
Oats and chia seeds are always a great way to start your day because you're getting a really healthy dose of fibre. Just one serving of oats and chia seeds can provide you with up to 40% of your daily fibre needs. And you're also getting a good mixture of both soluble and insoluble fibre. The soluble type helps stabilise your cholesterol and blood glucose levels. While the insoluble type keeps everything moving through your digestive tract. The chia seeds also contain some unsaturated fats — in fact chia seeds are the highest vegetarian source of omega-3. They're also a good source of protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. Blueberries contain a long list of antioxidants which protect our bodies cells from damage and help to reduce inflammation. This means a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and even less achey muscles after the gym. So if you need an on-the-go post-workout brekkie this is made for you!
