Overnight Oats

What are Overnight Oats?

If you've never heard of them, let me give you a little primer on overnight oats. No-cook oatmeal is made with overnight oats. Instead of boiling your oats with liquid on the stove or in the microwave, combine rolled old-fashioned oats with the liquid and other ingredients in a mixing bowl and chill overnight. You'll wake up to a pudding-like porridge ideal for quick meals.

What do Overnight Oats taste like?

It is a very common topic, and my answer is that I wouldn't eat overnight oats if they didn't taste nice. I understand that moving from hot to cold overnight oatmeal can be difficult after a lifetime of eating hot porridge. It's worth a shot, I promise. Even the greatest sceptics have been converted into overnight oats devotees. The easiness (you don't have to do anything in the morning) and texture are the clinchers. The texture of overnight oatmeal differs from that of hot/stovetop oatmeal. It's creamier, denser, and tastier. I'd rather have a jar of overnight oats than a bowl of heated oats.

Benefits of Overnight Oats to your Health

Here are five reasons to give overnight oats a try this week:

1. Overnight Oats increase your Digestibility

It's nearly like cooking oats when you soak them overnight, but the procedure is much longer and slower, and it's done without heat. Soaking the oats breaks down the starches and decreases the natural phytic acid, which may help your body absorb the nutrients more effectively. It may make the oat mixer simpler to digest than cooked oats, which is good for everyone but especially good for persons who have gluten sensitivities. Even gluten-free oats might be difficult to stomach, but overnight oats are a game-changer for many.

2. You'll Feel Fuller & Burn Fat

Overnight Oats not only make you feel fuller, but they also aid in fat burning. It's a win-win situation when it comes to dieting or using the jab! They're a type of carb that's genuinely beneficial to your health! Oats are resistant to starches, which means they digest slowly and cause the production of digestive acids, which have been demonstrated to reduce hunger and increase calorie burn.

According to studies, switching just 5% of your daily carbs to resistant starch carbs will increase your body's metabolism by 23%.

3. Increase your Heart Health

Oat bran has a reputation for lowering cholesterol levels. According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism, beta-glucan, an oat fiber, can reduce cholesterol levels by up to 10%! If you add lemon juice to your overnight oats, the extra vitamin C will help lower cholesterol levels even more. Overall, it will help to lower your risk of developing heart disease in the future.

4. Overnight Oats Boost your Fiber

Fiber is essential for a variety of bodily functions. It can aid in preventing stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, and acid reflux. It also helps to support a healthy digestive system daily.

Fiber can also aid in the reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol levels (as above). It can also help you manage your blood sugar levels, so you don't have those sugary cravings by mid-morning (the dreaded sugar crash!). Fiber can also assist in reducing inflammation in the body, which can lower the risk of a variety of health problems.

5. It is a Quick and Nutritious Breakfast

When you have overnight oats on hand, you can say goodbye to the age-old excuse of "I didn't have time." It only takes five minutes to prepare, and you can keep it in the fridge overnight before eating it the following day. According to studies, those who plan ahead of time make consistently healthier eating choices than those who grab something at the last minute. This is, without a doubt, the simplest method of preparing an extremely nutritious breakfast.

Remember, this overnight oatmeal recipe should only be used as a starting point. Don't be afraid to get creative with the ingredients you use in your nutritious overnight oats once you've mastered this step! When it comes to fruit, mashed bananas, strawberry slices, and blueberry jelly are all delicious additions to your overnight oats recipe. Consider topping your oats with your favorite nut butter or yogurt to make them more creamy and delicious.

Finally, try incorporating a textural element. Shredded coconut, hemp seeds, and slivered almonds are our favorite toppings. To take your overnight oatmeal to the next level, add maple syrup, honey, or your favorite natural sweetener before eating your first taste.

It's time to make nutritious overnight oats now that you know how! As you can see, overnight oats are the ideal morning pick-me-up to start your day off right. You'll be able to make these delicious little cups in no time with just a little planning and a little imagination.
