Slimming World has been a big part of our family meals for a year now, myself and Ian are members, both wanting to lose a few stone. We have found that we are both currently stuck at our current loss. I am currently stuck around the 3 stone loss, I will attend weigh-in and have put on 1-2lbs or get told I’ve either maintained or lost 1-2lbs, admittedly we are now very frustrated/bored with being stuck at this weight. Ian does shift work and is unable to attend every week so his gains or losses are much bigger, he is currently stuck at the 2 stone loss. We have recently had a chat and have decided we want to try different meals to see if that helps boost our losses, we have decided our breakfast this week is going to be the first to change and will be Overnight Oats.
We have been trying Overnight Oats so far this week and have found them to be so filling that the picking between meals had stopped (bonus). We also like the fact that it is a breakfast that you prepare the night before so it is also a time saver in the morning, you just get it out the fridge ready-made and ready to eat, you can eat it at home or simply grab and go (perfect).
Our overnight oats ingredients:
A glass jar to make the oats in
Strawberries – Unlimited amount
35g unflavored Porridge Oats
1 pot of 175g Muller Light Yoghurt
How we made our Overnight Oats:
We washed and sliced our strawberries, measured our oats out, chose our yogurt and then was ready to make our breakfast.
We covered the bottom of our glass jar with strawberries, spread one tablespoon of yoghurt over the strawberries, we then added some of the oats, enough to cover the yoghurt. The process was then repeated, we continued to layer our ingredients until the ingredients had gone, we did not mix the ingredients together we left the oats to soak in the yoghurt and the fruit as it was layered.
Once the Overnight Oats was made we then put it in the fridge until breakfast (10-12 hours). We then mixed the ingredients together then added some more fresh fruit on the top.
This is what ours looked liked once it came out of the fridge the next day.
This looked amazing, we couldn’t wait to tuck in.
The ingredients above is per person.
You can also add different fruits.
This is our mixed berries Overnight Oats.
We will be continuing to make our Overnight Oats and will also be trying it using different fruits mixed in. We will also be getting more active, we are going to take up swimming again and getting out more on our bikes.
