Beetroot Powder Overnight Oats


Mornings can often be hectic, forcing us to grab food that is processed, lacking protein and leaving our brains and bellies only a quarter full. Overnight oats can be a great way to get a healthy breakfast in the morning with little effort.


Overnight oats are simple, easy, economical and healthy. Even better, they can be prepped the night before or even earlier! Overnight oats generally last 5 days in the refrigerator, so if you want to prep all of your overnight oats for the week, go for it!


On the go? Simply add your toppings to the mason jar before leaving the house in the morning and it will be ready whenever you are!


I love the beautiful, rich colour of beetroot powder! Not only does it add a bright colour to your morning oats, it may also provide increased energy, fight inflammation, help with digestive health and is high in nutrients, but low in calories.
