Overnight soaked oats are amazing. They're packed with plant-based protein, magnesium, fiber, B vitamins and potassium.
They're extremely easy to prepare and they fill you up - it'll keep you satiated until lunchtime.
So, why soak the oats overnight? It enhances their nutrient profile, making more vitamins and minerals available.
Oats have the highest amount of phytic acid (also known as the "anti-nutrient") of any grain, which blocks mineral absorption and bloats you up. Not a good thing, especially for those with tummy sensitivities.
According to www.phyticacid.org, when phytic acid is removed from oats (by soaking them), your body absorbs 836% more iron, which is pretty amazing.
Try to incorporate soaked oats into your week! And add superfood sprinkles and fresh berries for a perfect breakfast.
