OVERNIGHT OATS 5 WAYS

When striving to live a healthy and fit lifestyle, good nutrition plays a huge role in your success.  If your goal is to look good then you should know that 80% of your results are determined by what goes in your mouth each day and exercise only accounts for the remaining 20% .

I like to start each and everyday off with a bowl of nutritious oatmeal.  Not only is it rich in soluble fibre, this breakfast staple contains both calcium and potassium.  If consumed on a daily basis oats can also provide multiple health benefits.  They are known to help lower cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, help stabilize blood sugars and help prevent breast cancer.
