Perfecto for this creation I made last night. No cooking required (i.e. assuming you have pre-cooked pumpkin or sweet potato) for this metabolically precise breakfast or snack.
Chia Pumpkin Refrigerator Oats contains:
1. FIRST CLASS PROTEIN i.e. chia seeds;
2. RIGHT CARBOHYDRATES i.e. pumpkin for ‘outside the metabolic window’;
Note: Use sweet potato for ‘inside the metabolic window’; and
3. GOOD FATS i.e flaxseed meal.
This recipe is great for those that suffer sensitivities to food as it is: Nightshade Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free*, Wheat Free*, Soy Free, Egg Free and Corn Free. *If you avoid Wheat or Gluten, make sure to use Certified Gluten Free oats.
Lastly it’s so quick to make:
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes
1/2 Cup x Rolled Oats*
1/2 – 1 Tablespoon x Maple Syrup (depending on desired sweetness)
1/4 – 1/2 Cup x Pumpkin or Sweet Potato Puree
1 Tablespoon x Chia Seeds
1/2 Teaspoon x Flaxseed Meal
1/2 Cup x Almond Milk (or any other milk of choice)
1.Mix all ingredients in order in a small glass container (mason jar, covered Pyrex, Tupperware, old jam jar, etc).
2.Shake (or stir) to combine ingredients well.
3.Place in the refrigerator and let sit overnight.
4.Take out in the morning, grab a spoon, and enjoy your nutrient-packed delicious breakfast.
So when you find yourself with a manic morning ahead and need a breakfast the whole family can enjoy on-the-go? This is a practical timesaver that tastes great and can be served ‘inside or outside the metabolic window’ that intense exercise creates. Enjoy! xx
