Keto Zone Super-Seed Overnight Oatmeal Health Benefits

This is no ordinary “oatmeal.”

Obviously, there are no oats.

But more importantly, we’ve included amazing health-benefitting ingredients.

There are 3 amazing super-seeds in this recipe. Each are great, healthy, foods on their own. Put them together and you’ve got a powerhouse breakfast to warm you up and start your day right all winter long.

Hemp Seeds

If you’re not familiar with hemp seeds, become acquainted. These small nutty-flavored seeds are an amazing source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and more (1).

In fact, with each serving of hemp seeds, you’ll get:

Protein – Hemp is a complete protein, containing six grams per serving with all essential amino acids.  What’s more, the “globular protein” structure is similar to proteins manufactured in our blood. This means they are readily digestible and usable by our bodies.

Plant-based omega-3 fatty acids (ALA).  In each serving, there are 1.5 grams of ALA omega-3s (different than the DHA/EPA found in seafood, but beneficial nonetheless).  The seeds small amount of omega-6 and significant omega-3 improve your ratio to promote anti-inflammatory reactions in your body.

Vitamin E and more: Hemp seeds also contain a good amount of Vitamin E, magnesium, fiber, calcium and iron packed into a great-tasting seed.

And if you’re wondering about any hempseed – marijuana connection, please note that Marijuana and hemp both come from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa L., but are different varieties. They are simply not the same just as two different flowers are not the same.

Living Chia Seeds

Next, you’ll find chia seeds: a health-promoting, energizing, warrior-food used for centuries (2). Chia seeds contain:

Minerals – Chia seeds are an excellent source of phosphorous, manganese and calcium.  They also contain trace amounts of sodium and potassium.

Healthy fats: Chia seeds contain a high amount of plant-based omega-3s.  And, while these cannot replace the omega-3s from fish and seafood, they still promote reduced inflammation and overall health.

Fiber: Chia seeds provide four grams per one serving!  Soluble fiber promotes digestive health, steady energy and blood sugars, reduced cholesterol, improved immunity, and overall wellness. What’s more, they are incredibly filling because the seeds “gel” and take on fluid. This creates a high volume, nutrient-dense food.

Antioxidants: Chia seeds provide healthful antioxidants to reduce free radical damage and risk of cancer.  Specific antioxidants include caffeic and chlorogenic acids, myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol.

Protein: Chia seeds, like hemp seeds, contain complete proteins with all essential amino acids.  Every serving of chia provides 6 grams of protein.

And, when you use “living chia seeds,” you get even more. Living chia seeds contain a unique strain of probiotics, IS-2 Bacillus Coagulans, which are viable through digestion and highly beneficial to the gut.

Flaxseeds

Like hemp seeds and chia seeds, flaxseeds are a whole food that provides a plethora of nutrients and has the research to back up its benefits.

Just one serving of flaxseeds provides healthy fats, 6 grams of fiber, protein, antioxidants, and minerals like magnesium and energy-promoting copper.

In research, flaxseed consumption has been shown to support better blood sugars, improved blood pressure, weight loss, and improved liver function in those with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. (3, 4, 5, 6).

Bottom Line

That’s it. An easy overnight breakfast that is sure to please and promote health. What a way to start each day!
