MANGO CHIA OVERNIGHT OATS

I’m starting or rather continuing healthy eating with oats. Overnight oats to be precise, fast, quick and filling. The best part of making overnight oats is that you can top up with fruits, nuts, granola, seeds or even chocolate. It’s mango season again and I thought why not make it a fruit oats meal that is vibrant and tropical plus of course delicious! I had fun making the strawberry one so this was even more exciting coming up with the flavor combinations. Oats contain carbohydrates, fiber, protein and good fat which gives the body the daily recommended nutrients and keeps you full for the rest of the day. This is turn lowers the risk of hear disease and reduces the level of blood cholesterol. Mangoes on the other side give you Vitamin C and folate while chia seeds are rich in protein, calcium, iron, carbohydrates and good dietary minerals. Combine these three ingredients and you are on your way to a filling healthy breakfast or snack option that will leave you satisfied and peace of mind. Mangoes are still in season so you have to take advantage of them to add delicious fruits to your diet. Overnight oats are great because you use minimal effort but the next day you have breakfast ready to go that has all the elements of healthy eating and/or snacking.
