This single serving of blueberry overnight oatmeal is delicious and a nutritional powerhouse. I like to use coconut, vanilla or blueberry yogurt instead of plain to give a little extra boost to the flavor. I use Light and Fit Greek yogurt, but any low carb brand can be used. I also use almond milk, but you could use your favorite dairy milk instead. Mix in a covered refrigerator dish or pint jar to store overnight. Add blueberries before serving. Eat at home or throw (tightly covered!) in your back pack to eat at your destination.
Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants, which protect body cells from free radicals. Free radicals are the villians that damage cells, contributing to aging and diseases, such as cancer. Blueberries are believed to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables and have been shown to increase antioxidant levels in your body. Blueberries can contribute to lowered blood pressure, positively effect cholesterol, have beneficial effects on insulin sensitivity, and improve brain health and memory. Blueberries are nutrient-dense. One cup of blueberries has 4 grams of fiber, 25% of recommended daily vitamin C and manganese, 36% of the daily requirement of vitamin K with only 84 calories and 15 grams of carbohydrates. Pretty impressive! Plus they are colorful, sweet and delicious!
