Start your day with Daily Harvest’s, easy, ready to make, healthy breakfast bowls perfect for these hot and humid months of the summer!
The sound of a warm bowl of oats drizzled with nut butter may sound delightful for the wintry months, but in the summer it makes us all sweat profusely. Cool overnight oats is the solution for those days when you are craving some hearty healthy oats but have no interest in having an instant hot flash.
Instead of cooking them on the stove or in the microwave, the oats sit in the fridge overnight and absorb the liquid they are mixed with. Yup you got it, it means no cooking required! Another option for a easy refreshing bowl is chia pudding! Similar to the oats you simply combine the chia with your liquid of choice and place it in the fridge overnight. In the morning you wake up to a cold, sweet and filling, sort of like having a decadent dessert for breakfast.
But the only problem with this great summer breakfast is finding the perfect ingredients to pair the oats or chia seeds with. While the ingredients are healthy by themselves they are bland and need some color to make them more appealing. You can achieve this with Daily Harvest , the brand delivering premium, healthy, easy-to-make superfoods directly to customers’ freezers. The brand where Oscar Award-winning actress and founder of Goop Gwyneth Paltrow and 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion, entrepreneur and fashion icon Serena Williams are an intrgral part of the brands’ mission to bring healthy food directly to your fridge.
Along with their smoothies, they have added ready to make superfood bowls, containing oats and chia. These bowls are based with either chia or oats which are both great sources of fiber! The bowl selections are either Chia Parfaits or Overnight Oats, and are filled with healthful and perfectly paired ingredients. These ingredients include superfoods such as tumeric for its anti-inflammatory wonders and blueberries for its antioxindant magic. All YOU have to do is to add your liquid of choice! Coconut water, almond milk or just plain old water!

According to Daily Harvest, soaking overnight supercharges your bowl: as the oats soak, their digestibility improves greatly as the starches break down, and the natural phytic acid( an anti nutrient,impairing the absorption of iron, zinc and calcium, and may promote mineral deficiencies) is greatly reduced making them more easily absorbed by your body. The soaking also protects the resistant starch (which cooking destroys), which has been linked to increased satiety, improved weight, better digestion, and it can help decrease insulin levels. Soaking chia seeds activates the full benefits of them, releasing their protein, fiber, good fats and omega-3 fatty acids while absorbing water that keeps you hydrated.*The oats and chia are at their best and most effective in the morning when they’ve had a chance to rest overnight.*
With cooking out of the way, you can now wake up with one less thing to do, and glow with the help of your refreshing breakfast bowls.
