Most of us prefer easy-to-make breakfasts that are quick to grab-and-go during busy (or sleepy) mornings! Well, there is nothing easier than this Blood Orange Overnight Oats with Tahini!
The oats in this recipe is a good source of dietary fibre. Adequate fibre intake is important for many reasons including gut health and maintaining optimal cholesterol levels. But you may not have known that high-fibre diets are also associated with a lower risk of many types of cancer including bowel and breast cancer.
Blood oranges, as a citrus fruit, have piths that are rich in bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are used to increase the action of vitamin C, to reduce inflammation, and to treat allergies. Plus – you guessed it! – bioflavonoids have been shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers! Additionally, the deep red colour of blood oranges indicate a high concentration of antioxidants, which are known to prevent DNA damage that can lead to cancer development.
Tahini and chia seeds are rich in minerals and high-quality plant-based protein. Both maintaining a plant-based diet and consistent habits that focus on increasing nutrient-density of foods consumed are important factors in reducing cancer risk.
So, try it out… It’s a simple weekday breakfast that you can prepare in advance and the whole family is sure to enjoy!
