Nutrient Booster: Pear
We love using fresh fruit to flavor and naturally sweeten our recipes. We especially love including pears in this oatmeal recipe because they provide so much more than great taste. Pears are a delicious, nutrient dense fruit that pack a lot of nutrition in each sweet and juicy bite. A medium sized pear has 100 calories, no fat and 6 grams of fiber. The high fiber and water component of pears helps us to feel full and satiated for longer periods of time between meals and snacks. Pears are also a good source of vitamin C, which is important for cell growth and repair and needed for proper immune functioning and protection against certain diseases. Starting your morning with a bowl of our Pear and Cinnamon Overnight Oats will help you fight off a winter cold and lead you to a speedy recovery.
Better Breakfast Option
Eating a breakfast loaded with unhealthy processed ingredients and added sugar can make you feel sluggish, can raise your risk for type 2 diabetes and can lead to other chronic health conditions. But when you follow our basic breakfast formula, pairing whole-grain carbs with proteins, you will be fueled with the energy your body needs to feel energized and focused. Kick-start your morning with our Pear and Cinnamon Overnight Oats and you will never question why breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
