Eating healthy is so important to me. There’s nothing like fueling your body with all of the wholesome foods it needs to feel strong, capable and powerful. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely times I chow down on a pizza or indulge in one too many scoops of ice cream. However, I allow myself to have cheat days because what is life without our favorite (junk) foods? In the end, I always go back to creating healthy meals for myself so I feel healthy and satisfied.
I love overnight oats because usually, I’m in such a hurry each morning. Even though I’m working from home now, I somehow feel like there still isn’t enough time in the mornings. This recipe is ready to go first thing in the morning. All you need to do is a grab a spoon or throw on a few desired toppings. Also, oats are so good for you! In addition to being incredibly delicious, they also help lower cholesterol, they’re rich in antioxidants, rich in fiber, full of protein, and may help contribute to weight loss. Sign me up!
You may find it strange that I add turmeric to this recipe. Well, not only does the turmeric give the oats a beautiful yellow color, it also is a very powerful spice. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties which help to relieve arthritis pain. And the cinnamon? Cinnamon is also very beneficial to our health as it is also loaded with antioxidants and helps fight against heart disease. Plus, it makes any recipe so delicious!
This recipe can be recreated so many ways so feel free to get creative! Hope you enjoy!
