Recipe: Very Berry Overnight Oats

Protein is one of the key macronutrients in our diet, we need it in order to grow and be healthy.

While we are being told to stay at home, it’s important you keep on top of your nutrition and one of the most important times to consume protein is post-training, whether that be a home workout or a virtual session.

Lecturer in Sports Nutrition at Manchester Metropolitan University, Ozcan Esen, and Sport and Exercise Nutrition BSc(Hons) students have helped put together some healthy recipes that you can try making at home!
