Overnight oats

When you’re breastfeeding and on maternity leave, it is particularly important to get all the nutrients your body needs. That’s when meals must be easy to prepare. This overnight oats can be made a day in advance. Eat it when you have time for a quick snack. You get omega-3 from the chia seeds, and if you top it with berries or fruit then you get other important vitamins too. Kiwi, berries or citrus fruits rich in vitamin C are also tasty alternatives to put on top of this porridge! Prepare several servings in airtight serving containers and keep in the refrigerator. The recipe serves 2 and can be kept for 3-5 days in the refrigerator. Bring it along as a snack on the walk or eat it whenever you feel hungry.
