For carb loading do “up to”.

For daily eating aim for 70-80% of daily calorie intake.

Why worry about sugar in yoghurt when put honey in it? :joy:

Although sounds v good recipe and I love overnight oats!


#43

Ha, it does sound a bit daft, yes! I think there’s just something about manufacturers adding processed white sugar into a product that doesn’t really need it, and me adding natural honey myself seems a bit more morally right.

If I put in the amount of honey that my girls add to their porridge, then I’d worry about my diet!

And organic unpasteurized honey has other benefits too when compared to refined sugar.

One thing to note regarding overnight oats. If you make them with cold/room temp water they will absorb a lot less liquid than if you simply poor boiling water over them and let them cool naturally. Starting with boiling water will allow them to absorb around twice as much water, but you can still prep them ahead of time.
