  • Too busy for breakfast? Give overnight oats a try! Not having time to cook breakfast on rushed mornings can lead you to skip breakfast altogether. So what's wrong with that? Breakfast has been shown to improve energy levels, focus and performance, and may help you get to and keep a healthy body weight. It’s also the meal where many people get a large portion of their calcium and fibre for the day, so missing breakfast could cause you to miss out on these important nutrients. Prepare breakfasts such as overnight oats ahead of time in single portion sizes so you can grab and go.
  • Oats contain a type of fibre called beta-glucan that has been shown to lower “lousy” LDL cholesterol levels. High LDL levels are associated with a higher risk of heart disease.
  • In cell studies, beta-glucan activated cancer-fighting cells such as T-cells and natural killer cells. In animal studies, beta-glucan was shown to prevent cancer cells from growing.
