Healthy Overnight Oats with Raspberry Chia Jam for an easy and delicious breakfast that you can prep ahead of time!
You know those days when you wake up late and only have time to drink your coffee, and eat a couple pieces of fruit before you run out the door? That's been happening to me a lot lately. I get to work and I'm super hungry for lunch by 10 am! Preparing a healthy, energy boosting breakfast can often be hard when you're in the midst of a busy work or school week.
If you're under a lot of stress, incorporating oats into your breakfast is a good natural source of GABA. Otherwise known as "the calming amino acid", GABA plays a key role as the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in your brain. GABA inhibits excitation, therefore encouraging the nerves and muscles in your body to relax.
Who wouldn't want to start their morning with some calming overnight oats?!
This recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare ahead the night before. Pop in in the fridge before bed, and this delicious breakfast will be waiting for you in the morning!
