Hi guys! I’ve teamed up with Superdry and their awesome SuperdrySport range to bring you our “Fitness Survival Pack”. Included in this are some nutritional recipes that complement your workout regimes. Up first Overnight Oats…
Find making a healthy breakfast hard work in the mornings? Are you all too often flying out the door with little or nothing to eat before work? Then you’re missing out on a fabulous opportunity to nourish and fuel that wonderful body of yours! So, I have the answer for you….
These super delicious oats work best when left overnight so can be pre-prepared. They’re a great source of nutrition to get you going in the morning. You don’t have to stick rigidly to the ingredients list either, mix it up with different fruits, or perhaps adding some Cacoa for some lovely chocolate goodness (Jog on Coco Pops!)
Preparation time is minimal and ingredients are kept pretty simple meaning the recipe is perfect for all you busy health bunnies out there! I am a personal trainer (not a nutritionalist) the aim of these recipes are to give you an idea on simple and attainable healthy cooking (for cooks and non-cooks a like!) If I can cook it, you can! This one doesn’t even require cooking – just soaking! 😉
Consistent nutrition is absolutely fundamental to Tone What You Own! Recipes found on the blog (and clean recipes found elsewhere) serve as a fantastic supplement to your workouts. This is one of my absolute favourite, simple, healthy breakfast recipes. I hope you enjoy these oats as much as I do. The texture some people can find a little strange at first, but certainly something you get used to. You end up with a really lovely creamy version of porridge that’s great for you and keeps you fuller for longer! Here you go, let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you!
Tone What You Own’s Overnight Oats
You will need:
- A jar or bowl to soak them in overnight
- ½ ripe banana
- A handful of blueberries
- A small cup of oats
- A tbsp of goji berries
- A small handful of nuts (preferably raw, I like to use cashews, macadamias, walnuts and pecans – mix it up a bit!)
- A tbsp of desiccated coconut
- A tbsp. of almond butter (preferably with no added preservatives like sugars and salts!)
- A tbsp. of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of almond milk (I like to use the brand Almond Breeze’s “Unsweetened Almond Milk) (the aim is to have equal parts almond milk and water so you may need to experiment with water and almond milk measures based on your chosen jar/bowl)
- Add banana, oats, chia seeds, nuts, goji berries, coconut and chia seeds into your jar or bowl
- Add to this the water and almond milk. In this recipe I have used a ratio of 1:1 water: almond milk. If you like it creamy; add more milk, more fluid; add more water. The liquid needs to completely cover all of the ingredients as it will soak in overnight.
- Stir, or shake the ingredients (if using a lidded jar)
- Leave to soak overnight in the fridge
- Remove it from your fridge in the morning
- Add a spoon of your favourite nut butter to add a bit of crunch – my favourite is almond butter! YUM!
If you prefer, you can warm your overnight oats slightly on the hob after you take them out the fridge to take off the chill. I personally like mine cold. Ta-da! Now you can enjoy a great grab and go breakfast option full of energy to power you through your day. Perfect for mornings on the move!
