Flat-Belly Overnight Oats

Make This Tonight to Prevent Tomorrow's Bloated Belly

If you've yet to hop on the overnight-oats bandwagon, this is the perfect recipe to get you started. It's not only quick and delicious, but it's chock-full of ingredients that can offer you a flatter, less-bloated tummy. The oats offer complex carbs that fill you up longer and take a while to digest, keeping hunger cravings at bay. This whole grain is also full of fiber, so it keeps you regular, and is proven to speed up metabolism. The added chia seeds are also high in fiber and, once soaked, develop a gelatinous coating which some raw foodists believe helps them to move swiftly through the digestive track.

The yogurt offers probiotics to boost the good bacteria in your gut (go for dairy-free if you're lactose intolerant). For added fiber, blueberries are a juicy addition, and the banana is rich in potassium, a mineral that helps your body get rid of excess water weight. Pineapple adds a tropical twist, as well as an enzyme that helps ease digestion and banish bloat. Research shows that the calcium and healthy fats in the almond milk and chopped almonds can reduce belly fat. Sprinkle in some cinnamon to kick up your body's temperature, speeding up your body's fat burning process, and skip added sweeteners because the fruit is naturally sweet enough.

See how easy it is to use the first meal of the day to battle bloat? And it'll only take five minutes to make. Just throw everything in a mason jar, put it in the fridge and tomorrow you'll be spooning into the sweet flavor of flat-belly goodness.
