There are some nutritionists I love to follow especially those close to me in Tooting. Alex who is Founder of Nutrition For Life is no exception. She creates fantastic healthy recipes and I draw inspiration from her ingredients. Today’s overnight oats are no exception. I was sold on shredded apple and then added in a few extras that I had in my cupboard. Thanks Alex! Keep the great recipes coming. Great to have post-workout if you have done so before breakfast!
Ingredients for the overnight bit:
• 40g jumbo oats
• 1 tbsp hemp seed (optional)
• 1 tbsp flaxseed (optional)
• ½ tsp ground ginger
• ½ tsp cinnamon
• 1 tsp fresh ginger (finely grated)
• Warm water (to cover the oats overnight)
Ingredients to add in the morning:
• ½ apple (grated)
• Almond milk (according to your consistency preference

To make (in the morning):
