This lovely recipe was brought to you by a lovely colleague of mine who specialises in Nutrition for pregnancy and post natal recovery. She has shared with me a few recipes. Try and plan your week of food so you avoid the sugar highs and lows, starting with a breakfast of soaked oats overnight is a great way to start the day and beat the tiredness of feeding and being up through the night! Get organised and put these onto your next shopping list.
40g porridge oats
200g natural yogurt
Mixed blueberries, strawberries and raspberries
You can use a jar (a Kilner jar is great, mug or bowl)
Make layers of porridge oats, natural yogurt and berries
Cover and place in the fridge overnight
The oats will absorb the yogurt and some juice from the berries.
In the morning take out of fridge, stir and enjoy!
This is such a versatile recipe as you can add any fruit you like. Grated apple/ pear and a sprinkle of cinnamon make a great alternative to berries.
The protein in the yogurt and oats and the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in the fruit are great for helping with the healing process, the calcium in the yogurt is great for keeping your calcium levels up if you are breastfeeding and the fibre in the oats helps keep everything regular in the bowl department.
