Boosting Breakfast

Posted by Lindsay Sanderson on


Breakfast is one of the meals I struggle the most with. I wake up hungry and I need a hearty, healthy start to keep me going all day long but the last thing I want to do is a bunch of cooking or clean up. Time is always so tight in the morning. I was so excited when I discovered overnight oats. I love oatmeal in the morning but I hate the waiting (I also cant stand the texture of instant oats).

Overnight oats have quickly become my new favourite breakfast. They are fast, easy and healthy. I can load them up with all kinds of good for ingredients to start my day off right. I love using SKTN minieats booster in my overnight oats to give them any extra nutritional bang. These boosters have lots of milk boosting ingredients and are great for moms who are not nursing too. I haven’t been nursing for a years now but I love the nutritional boost and flavour in these products. The boosters are in stock at Raising a Little and ready to ship across Canada.

I use steel cut oats in my overnight oats. I do this because I like to make bigger batches and I prefer the slightly chewy texture they have, even after being in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can use any kind of oatmeal, the texture will just change.

You can also use any kind of milk. I am really enjoying oat milk right now. It’s got a great creamy taste and more sustainable that other dairy free milks. Almond, Cashew and other nut milks also work, but they are a less sustainable choice. Classic dairy milk is another great choice. If you haven’t noticed - the theme of overnights oats is that they are very flexible and you can do whatever works for you with them 

These 3 flavour ideas are a great place to get started and once you have the idea down you can add whatever you want and get creative. Oats are a great base for any kind of flavour.

The first step is the basic overnight oats. These recipes make 2-3 servings depending on the amount eat for breakfast.

Basic overnight oats 

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup greek yogurt (yogurt is optional but adds gut friendly probiotics and make the oats oh so creamy delicious)

Mix all the ingredients together in a mason jar and leave in the fridge overnight. Eat it straight out of the jar or serve in a bowl. Eat cold.

 

Now for a little fun. These are 3 of my favourite boosted overnight oatmeal recipes.You can mix and match you favourite booster depending on your needs. The metabolic booster is great for everyone and features turmeric to boost your metabolism and reduce inflammation.

The Mama’s milk boosters help to boost milk supply and keep you and baby full all day long. Boosters are in stock at Raising a Little.

Nuts and hemp hearts are 2 of my favourite add ins. Hemp hearts are loaded with healthy omegas and fibre. Omegas are great brain food for adults and babies. Nuts are also loaded with good fats and magnesium. Magnesium is a key mineral that helps our bodies recover and our minds de-stress. It also helps us (and our babies) sleep better at night.
