More training fuel today with some anti inflammatory ginger, a perfect pre and post running brekkie – the hit of ginger at 6.30am certainly helped to wake me up. The chia seeds add some protein as well, so a perfect combo. If you are a big fan of ginger you may want to up the quantities a little, I like mine quite potent, but not overwhelming. However go easy on the crystalized ginger, you don’t want to ruin a healthy brekkie by too much sugar – although if you’re running I believe it’s not such a sin!
Triple Ginger & Pear overnight oats (serves one)
- 200ml coconut milk
- A big thumb sized piece of fresh ginger – skin removed
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 lumps of crystalized ginger finely diced
- 1 pear – grated with skin
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 50g Oats
Blend the milk and fresh ginger – taste and add more ginger if you want a stronger ginger milk. Mix the milk with the oats, ground ginger, crystalized ginger, grated pear and chia seeds. Leave to soak overnight.
