- Overnight oats
Where you go wrong: You make it way too sweet. You may catch more flies with honey, but you also get more calories. By adding sugar, honey, or agave to your overnight oats you also cause your blood sugar to spike and crash.
The fix: Instead, add in 1/4 cup of fresh fruit or a sprinkle of nuts for flavor. “By relying on the natural sugar in fruit and in dairy you’ll cut back on calories, and will eventually change your palate,” Ginn-Meadow says. Additionally, Sheth recommends reaching for steel cut or whole grains, instead of other heavily processed grains. (Skip cold and flu season this year with these 9 power foods that boost immunity.)
