Quick Tips:

You can make a double or triple batch. Overnight oats are good for 3 days in the fridge.

Choose Ceylon cinnamon that is safer for consumption. It's also known as true cinnamon. It can be found in health food stores, and also on Amazon.

Protein powder

Choose high quality grass-fed whey or sprouted/ fermented vegan proteins that are easier to digest. Some good brands include Genuine Health, Sunwarrior, Garden of Life, Vega, and Manitoba Harvest.


Nutritional Highlights:

Oats

Contain a soluble fiber called beta-glucan that helps to reduce bad LDL cholesterol, balance blood sugar and keep you regular.

Cinnamon

High in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and helps to improve insulin sensitivity.
