We tend to use our busy lives as an excuse not to eat a proper breakfast. Yes, it’s much easier to grab something on the go, but if you stop and think about it, you’ll realize that you’re just doing harm to your body in the long run. Luckily, it is possible to get a proper breakfast at home before you head out, and it won’t require an eternity to prepare. We’re talking about oatmeal.
Though the convenient packages of instant oatmeal are available in any store, they contain added sugar and we don’t recommend them on a daily basis. Instead, buy oats in bulk and make a stash at home so you are always prepared for a quick, delicious breakfast.
The great thing about oats is that they can serve as a base for numerous meals – sweet or savory. That way, you can do basically whatever you have in the fridge to create a different breakfast every day and prevent getting bored with it. The usual and most obvious choice is various fruits. Oats are perfect with bananas, berries, peaches, etc. Adding nuts will make your breakfast reach in calories and protein. When you don’t feel like eating a sweet breakfast, you can try a ham and egg oatmeal or spinach, tomato, and feta oatmeal. Plenty of recipes and ideas are available online and once you develop a routine, you’ll be anxious to try more different versions.
Depending on how much time you have, you can quickly boil oats in the morning or soak them in water, milk, or yogurt overnight.
For a super-quick breakfast on the go, add oats to your morning smoothie. Preparing it doesn’t take more than a few minutes and you can drink your breakfast after you go out. Whichever option you choose, you will know that you just ate a healthy meal full of fiber that will easily keep you full until lunch.
