First off, let’s talk about oats. This whole grain just to stick to your ribs (figuratively – haha  and keep me from getting hungry with an hour. Oats are a fantastic source of fiber and even boast a bit of protein – however, you know how I insist on getting enough protein in the morning, so I add in a scoop of protein powder (which also adds to the thick creaminess).

Turmeric is an amazing spice that is prized for its anti-inflammatory purpose – same with ginger, in fact the two roots are related. Toss in some coconut, and the result is a lightly spicy, mildly earthy bowl of oats with the vibe of India.Toasted Coconut Turmeric and Ginger Overnight Oats make a hearty, healthy healing breakfast.

Overnight oats are a portable breakfast solution for your commute, in an office or after a gym session.  If I have enough time for a hot meal, I’ll warm up the oats in the microwave and thin out with a bit more milk, if needed. Hot or cold, I’m winning by beginning the day with a 200 -calorie breakfast featuring 6.5 fiber, over 9 grams of protein and nearly 30 percent of the daily recommendation for calcium.

I originally created this recipe for Litehouse Foods using their amazing Instantly Fresh Ginger which is a staple in my pantry.
