Overnight Oats

Discovering 'Overnight Oats' was a game-changer for me. I never have much time in the morning so I need breakfasts that are quick yet still delicious and nutritious. So, here you go, drum roll please.... Overnight Oats.

Serves 2...

150g gluten free oats

300ml organic whole milk*

50g pumpkin seeds

50g sunflower seeds

1 tsp chia seeds

50g chopped cashews

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 ripe banana

50g raspberries and/or blueberries

1 tbsp honey (optional)

Stir together the oats, milk, seeds, vanilla extract and sliced banana, then carefully spoon it into a couple of Kilner or jam jars. Add the raspberries and/or blueberries and top with a squirt of honey. Pop the lids on and leave in the fridge for the mixture to thicken overnight.

Nutrition Tip - Try to include protein in the form of nuts and/or seeds, as by combining protein and carbohydrate it helps with balancing your blood sugar, keeping you fuller for longer (especially important at breakfast).

*To make this a super nutritious breakfast why not swap whole milk for a home-made nut milk, such as almond, hemp or brazil nut. Watch out for my forth-coming post of nut milks! Beware supermarket versions as they can have a high sugar content.

From the first consultation to delivery Donna was completely supportive, understanding and a consummate professional. Her understanding of my needs and dietary requirements was fantastic. I’ve lost over 2 stone, and my asthma is now nearly non existent. I wholeheartedly recommend Donna, I can promise you that you won’t regret getting in touch with her.

Nutrition MOT

Following a period of illness I decided to take my life in hand and decided that my diet needed an overhaul. As a family we have adapted the changes easily into our busy lives and have enjoyed the meals from the menu plan. It has made us look more carefully at the foods we are buying. If you’re reading this, you’re obviously contemplating looking at your diet. I would definitely recommend Donna to help you with this.

Gut Healing Programme

I contacted Donna because I had health issues and a poor diet. I'm so pleased I did as she helped me change my diet and I now feel so much better with her support. In fact, I was so impressed that I advised my daughter to see Donna, and she in turn has recommended Donna to her friend. Overall Donna is competent and understanding, easy to talk to and sympathetic to a person's needs. I would give her a 5 Star rating *****
