This recipe is loaded with health benefits, thanks to the turmeric (which fights inflammation), cinnamon (balances blood sugar) and ginger (soothes the stomach). Oats are an excellent source of fibre, which becomes more easily digestible when soaked overnight. Prepare this recipe the night before for a delicious grab-and-go breakfast that will keep you feeling satisfied until lunch!
