My favorite Oatmeal Recipe
My favorite breakfast
Today everything revolves around my favourite breakfast: oatmeal. Basically it’s a simple mixture of milk and oats. In the beginning I always bought a ready-made mixture and only added the milk at home until I realized that it was very easy to do it yourself. Furthermore the homemade oatmeal tastes a lot better. You can also make different variations like adding nutmeg, fruit or Chia seeds, for example. Every day you can try a new version of this Power Breakfast and adjust it as you like.
Why is it such a power breakfast anyway?
By dissolving the fibre (i.e. the oats) in water/milk they expand in the stomach and satiate us for a very long time. Oatmeal also provides us with important nutrients, i.e. vitamins, protein, fat, carbohydrates and minerals. This breakfast is very good for our digestion.
Making Overnight Oats
That’s why it’s my absolute favorite for breakfast! You can also prepare it very well to-go for the next day. This variation is called “Overnight Oats” which means you prepare the Oatmeal and fill it into a glass or box and then put it in the fridge overnight. But you don’t have to cook it either you can mix it together and put it in a glass/box. You can warm up your porridge or enjoy it cold, everything is possible!
