Tropical Turmeric Overnight Oats are the perfect way to start your day. Filled with nutritious ingredients to keep you going well into lunchtime.
I don’t want to be one of those “I’m a morning person” person. Buuuut the thing is I am a morning person, and I generally think it’s because of breakfast. As soon as my eyelids flutter open my stomach starts grumbling, the thought of being able to eat again for another whole day get’s me excited (super lame I know.) When your breakfast is this bowl of Tropical Turmeric Overnight Oats you’ll be just as excited!
I love Turmeric, it’s a magnificent spice, here’s a post about the health benefits of turmeric. I also LOVE oats, I eat a bowl every day whether that be for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. (Pssst sometimes I have two bowls, those are good days). The downside of being a morning person is that I’m a horrible person to be around
9 pm 8 pm. Sorry if you ever have to deal with me then.
Packed inside this bowl Turmeric Tropical Overnights Oats is everything you want in a meal and especially from a breakfast. Slow release carbs, a decent serving of protein, a healthy serving of fats, lots of micronutrients from the fruit and a nice dose of anti-inflammatory turmeric. The perfect breakfast for when the weather is warmer and you still want a bowl of delicious creamy oatmeal or for those mornings when you need a grab and go breakfast that’s healthy and filling.
