Matcha overnight oats are a creamy, filling, and nutritious breakfast packed with protein and fiber. It is thick and creamy oatmeal with a matcha, fresh fruits, and nut butter.
Chia seeds thicken and give the oats an awesome texture. Chia seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
Then there’s matcha, which lets you add in the flavor and nutrients in a convenient powder form. Matcha is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCG, and rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins. It helps to boost metabolism and burns calories, detoxifies your body effectively, calms the mind and relaxes the body, enhances mood and aids in concentration, and also protect from heart disease.
