Pear Overnight Oats – Key Nutrients
Oats – Half a cup of oats (approx. 40/45g) provides 7g protein and even more protein by the time you add your milk in too. Not only that, they also provide an excellent source of low GI carbohydrates helping to maintain blood glucose levels.
Pear – A good source of fibre, pears help to keep your digestive health functioning effectively. Fibre helps to alleviate constipation, allowing the body to eliminate toxins such as cholesterol.
Flax seed – Also known as linseeds, flax seed is one of the best plant-based sources of omega 3. Not only that, it’s also a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals.
