You NEED to be having a protein-rich breakfast!
Protein is an essential macronutrient that plays a crucial role in our health, and including it in your breakfast will offer several advantages:
Sustained Energy: Protein helps stabilize blood sugar levels, providing you with steady and sustained energy throughout the morning. This can prevent mid-morning energy crashes and keep you alert and focused.
Muscle Support: Protein is vital for muscle repair and growth. Starting your day with protein helps ensure your muscles have the necessary building blocks for optimal function.
Feeling Full: Protein keeps you feeling full and satisfied, reducing the likelihood of overeating later in the day. This can be especially helpful if you're trying to manage your weight.
Collagen for Skin and Joints: Collagen is a unique protein that not only benefits your skin's elasticity and joint health but also supports your hair and nails. Including collagen in your morning routine is going to be your new favorite wellness hack!
Gut-Healing Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats Recipe
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your preferred milk)
- 1/2 cup diced apples (with skin for added fiber)
- 1 scoop of collagen powder
- 1 scoop of The Soother
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey (optional, for sweetness)
- A pinch of salt
- Toppings (suggestions): apple slices, chopped nuts, and a drizzle of almond butter.
Prepare Your Ingredients: Gather all your ingredients and have them ready.
Combine Oats and Liquid: In a mason jar or a bowl, combine the rolled oats and almond milk. Stir well to ensure the oats are fully coated. The liquid-to-oats ratio should be about 2:1.
Add Sweetness and Flavor: If you prefer your oats on the sweeter side, stir in the maple syrup or honey. Add the ground cinnamon and a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor.
Incorporate Collagen: Now, it's time to add the star ingredient—collagen powder. Sprinkle it into the oat mixture and stir until it's evenly distributed.
Fold in Apples: Gently fold in the diced apples, which add a delightful crunch and natural sweetness to your overnight oats.
Cover and Refrigerate: Seal the mason jar or cover your bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the mixture overnight or for at least 4 hours to allow the oats to absorb the liquid and flavors.
Serve and Top: When you're ready to enjoy your breakfast, remove the jar or bowl from the fridge. Give it a good stir, and if you like, add toppings such as apple slices, chopped nuts, and a drizzle of almond butter.
Dig In: Grab a spoon and savor the wholesome goodness of your Collagen-Infused Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats!
