What better way to start your day than a bowl of health? That’s exactly what I call this anti-inflammatory matcha oats and berries breakfast bowl recipe! That’s cause it’s so rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, plus, it’s packed with essential nutrients that help with inflammation.
If you haven’t been adding Matcha to your diet, you need to start now because this amazing Japanese green tea has a lot of potential health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties.
Berries are rich in the antioxidant anthocyanins which aid in eliminating free radicals. This helps reduce oxidative stress and low-grade inflamamtion so definitely add them to your diet.
Chia seeds are very rich in dietary fiber which lowers inflamamtion so it’s definitely worth adding to your smoothies and breakfast bowls.
Anti-Inflammatory Matcha Oats & Berries Breakfast Bowl
Just to give you a heads-up, this recipe takes a little over 8 hours to make but it’s worth the wait. You’ll be making this overnight.
However, you can reduce the total time by soaking the chia seeds in 4 tablespoons of water for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
In another bowl, soak the milk and oats for the same amount of time as the chia seeds, Once both have softened, combine them with the matcha and set it in the fridge for 1 hour. Garnish with the rest of your ingredients and enjoy.
So instead of making it overnight, you can make it in less than 2 hours.
