Leanne Ward, 31, said her daily breakfast choice is ‘easy and healthy’, but it also has enough in it to mean that she is full until she eats lunch after a busy morning of helping clients.
‘This is my recipe for my go-to tropical overnight oats,’ Leanne said on a TikTok video.

Leanne Ward , 31, said her daily breakfast choice (pictured) is ‘easy and healthy’, but it also has enough in it to mean that she is full until she eats lunch after a busy morning of helping clients
To make the dish, the 31-year-old said you’ll need a few household ingredients, which you then stir together and place in the fridge overnight (the dish pictured)
To make the dish, the 31-year-old said you’ll need half a cup of milk, a third of a cup of rolled oats, 25 grams of vanilla protein, 70 grams of frozen mango, two tablespoons of shredded coconut and one teaspoon of chia seeds.
In the evenings when she gets home from work, Leanne said she prepares all of her ingredients and pours them inside a jam or mason jar.
Once they are inside the jar, Leanne stirs them together and places the jar in the fridge overnight so that she has a delicious and nutritious meal ready for after she has been to the gym in the morning.
Thousands were quick to say how ‘delicious’ Leanne’s (pictured) breakfast looked, and that they couldn’t wait to try it for themselves at home

‘Yum. This looks incredible,’ one commenter wrote.
Others said they loved the look of it, but often find that oats don’t keep them full until lunchtime.
‘I love oats but they are never filling enough for me!’ one commenter wrote.
‘I add natural peanut butter, fruit, 50 grams of oats and protein powder, and 45 minutes later I’m hungry again.’
To combat this, Leanne recommended the woman switch her protein powder for full fat Greek yoghurt and the peanut butter for chia seeds and flaxseeds.
When it comes to how else she looks after her body in order to stay lean, Leanne (pictured) said there are some foods that make fat loss easier and others which make it more difficult

When it comes to how else she looks after her body in order to stay lean, Leanne said there are some foods that make fat loss easier and others which make it more difficult.
‘These foods taste great and keep you on track,’ Leanne posted.
In good news for those who can’t get through the morning without a large latte or cappuccino, Leanne said you don’t need to forgo this in order to speed up fat loss.
‘I drink a coffee daily – it’s both delicious and good protein for fullness,’ the dietitian posted on TikTok.
Leanne often supplements her coffee with either almond or oat milk, but always chooses a calcium-enriched variety to make sure she gets enough of the nutrients.
The second food on Leanne’s fat loss-burning foods is frozen grapes, which she said are a healthy way of satisfying a sweet craving.
‘I always eat them when I’m craving something sweet as an ice cream replacement,’ Leanne said.
Elsewhere, the dietitian recommends adding the likes of cottage cheese, popcorn and roasted chickpeas to your diet if you want to see weight loss results.
To make roasted chickpeas, simply take a can of chickpeas, drain them and dry them out as much as possible.
Then, add plenty of olive oil, salt and pepper and spices, and pop them in the oven to gently roast for 20-30 minutes.
Finally, let the chickpeas sit for half an hour to cool down before enjoying.
