I’ve got breakfast covered for you! And it’s so easy!! Sit down or on the go, this Fibre Blast Over Night Oatmeal will satisfy the hungriest of morning folks.
Fibre is an important piece of a healthy diet. It is important for aiding us in eliminating waste from our system, balancing blood sugar, cholesterol management and it is a key nutrient source for our beloved microbiome.
And keeping our microbiome happy is vital for our overall good health.
Our microbiome functions in many important ways. It aids with our digestion. It is involved in the production of vitamins such as B and K. And it plays a major role in our immune system.
With all of this in mind, my general recommendation for fibre intake is 35-40 grams a day. It’s a lot but absolutely doable if your diet is a plant based one.
This recipe as a whole contains about 23 grams of fibre. So it’s fairly easy for you to calculate how much your serving size is getting you. I’ve indicated that the recipe is between 2-4 servings because some can eat a bowl full while others are satiated by far less.

As a side note:
- you can top with things like slivered almonds, flaked coconut, fresh fruit, maple syrup or honey.

- you can substitute dried cranberries or goji berries for the raisins.
