Having been away for a lot of the summer it’s so nice to be back in my apartment cooking my favorite healthy foods. As a personal trainer and fitness model people often ask me what I have for breakfast. Breakfast is one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle, it gets you set up and ready for whatever the day has to bring. Breakfast is an absolute must if your looking to get in shape. It stops you over eating later on in the day and ensures you start your day with a nutritious punch fueling mind, body & spirit.
One of my firm favs is “Overnight Oats”. Super simple, super tasty. They just need a touch of prep the night before, but no fuss, no muss in the morning…you’re off out the door ready & raring for your day! It’s great for breakfast to eat at home, as a “grab-and-go” brekkie or even as a healthy airport bite if you’ve got an early flight to catch – although from previous experience; better to eat it pre security check!
Here’s how I make this breakfast beaut:
Overnight Oats (makes 2 servings)
- 2 tbsp of steel cut or rolled oats
- 1 small cup of almond milk
- 1 small cup of water
- 1 chopped banana
- 1 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp flax seeds
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- Handful of blueberries
1) Place in a bowl: oats, almond milk, banana, cinnamon, chia seeds & flax seeds
2) Stir ingredients
3) Leave to rest in the fridge “overnight” (geddit!?)
4) Hey presto; in the morning add almond butter & blueberries
Done deal. That’s it! Super simple, super easy, super healthy. You’ll be surprised at how delicious it is. Much better for digestion too. Massive everyday winner.
Sending health & happiness, Kim x
