How to Prepare the Easiest No-Cooking Overnight Oats Recipe

Are you looking for a hearty healthy breakfast packed with vitamins, fibers, and lots of nutrients?

We have the solution for you!

So Why Oats?

Oatmeal contains soluble and insoluble fiber.

Insoluble fiber in oats helps provide intestinal health.

Soluble fiber helps lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels.

Oats can keep you feeling fuller longer, thereby helping you control weight.

They are ideal as part of your pregnancy diet. Half a cup of oats contains around 20% of your daily iron requirements, 20% of the zinc you'll need, 11% of your folate and 39% of your Vitamin B1.

This popular breakfast food is healthy, whole grain carbohydrate choice that offers up fibre, B vitamins, and iron all at once. 

There are also anecdotal claims that eating oatmeal and other foods made with oats can give your milk supply a boost once the baby is born.

Although there’s no scientific evidence to support this role, many women (and lactation consultants) swear by it. 

It’s worth a try since oats provide so many additional healthy benefits and they're quick and easy.

With everyone's busy schedule being a mom, sometimes finding time to make your own nutritious meal is not easy.

Overnight oatmeal can be made in various ways. You can eat overnight oats hot or cold depending on your preference. 

You can let it sit out while you are getting the children ready for bed or you can pop it in the microwave for 30- 40 sec.
