Hey Chicks,

As a fitness and nutrition coach you have to have a toolbox of healthy swaps for your clients.  Instead of reaching for the refined carby bagels and breads to start the day, there is nothing that makes us sing “Yummy, yummy, yummy – I’ve got healthy love in my tummy!” like a quick, healthy breakfast option that you can take to go.

Here are 3 of our fave overnight oatmeal recipes that will knock your flavour socks off.  Plus they are “Complete in 3” approved (ie contain protein, fibre and healthy fat) to keep your blood sugar balanced, is also a great pre / post workout snack and are completely portable.  Make the night before in mason jars and can be eaten cold or warm in the am (just heat for about 30 sec in microwave or on low on the stove so not to “cook” the oats but just heat up)

Here are 3 of our fave Chicktastic Overnight Oats.  All of the below make 1 serving

CHICK TIPS:

  1. MAKE A BUNCH! Do your meal prep for the week and make 7 mason jars with the dry ingredients.  The night before bed, just mix in the wet to save time
  2. GET CREATIVE! Think of your fave chocolate bar, dessert or treat and recreate the flavours.  Some other fave mixes of ours are Peanut Butter Cup, Raspberry Cheesecake and Pistachio Vanilla …yum.
  3. GET YOUR KIDS INVOLVED! It has been proven that the more kids are involved in preparing healthy foods, the more likely they are to adopt healthy habits for the long haul.  Let your wee ones build their own and pick what kind of fruits, nuts, spices they want to include.  It’s an awesome family project tooJ

Have a fierce day,

Laura, your Head Chick
