Gingerbread overnight oats

When in doubt, eat oats. You can’t go wrong with oats, after all! They’re perfect for breakfast, lunch and even dinner (but maybe not in the same day!).

Berries are coming into season in Britain so, of course, I’ve included them in this breakfast. If berries are a bit overpriced where you live,┬átry finding some frozen berries since they’re usually cheaper.

I’m a huge fan of ginger. Not only does ginger taste great but it also has some pretty awesome health benefits too, including:

  • helping to relieve menstrual pain,
  • improving digestion,
  • acting as a natural painkiller that reduces pain and inflammation.
