I really do get it – it’s hard to make time on a school morning to prepare a nutritious breakfast. My teenage daughter Izzy and I teamed up to produce this blog, after she developed this yummy recipe. Izzy doing the creative part – great instagram photos and actual recipe development, and me doing the nutrient analysis with my dietetic book “The RSC Composition of Foods“. Overnight Almond Oats are vegan, milk free, wheat free and positively bursting with health giving nutrition.
It all started when we both decided to moooove away from cow’s milk for 2020. We’re experimenting at the moment, trying various milk alternatives: oat, almond and soya are our favourites. We haven’t yet tried the many different yoghurts like oat and coconut, but soya based yogurt with toasted almond tastes really great. So, look out for more delicious and nutritious recipes! If you are developing your own recipe ideas and selecting more vegan and milk/wheat free choices, don’t forget about calcium. It an absolute must! Read the label of the milk or yoghurt you are buying, and if it doesn’t have calcium, then find one that does. You bones will thanks you when you get to my age! Or quite a bit before!!
