This right here folks, is my classic oatmeal. Oatmeal is one of my number one favourite foods, and absolute favourite breakfasts. I think it’s important to start your day off with a big healthy breakfast because you have been sleeping for 8-10 hours and your body hasn’t had any food! You have been fasting, and you need to break that fast as soon as you wake up! Also, having a big breakfast gives you a great start to your day, boosting you with energy, and satisfying your body so it doesn’t feel starved and deprived.
Breakfast has been proven to boost metabolisms and helps people lose weight. It is unhealthy to skip breakfast in the morning. Even if you “don’t have enough time”, or claim to “not be hungry when you wake up” you should still eat. Whether it be oatmeal, or overnight oats because they are quicker, you can find a variety of healthy and filling breakfast foods that are perfect for you!
The reason i love oatmeal for breakfast is because it’s moist, warm deliciousness. The soft oats mixed with brown sugar is so delightful, and when i top it with cashews, fruit and peanut butter, it is just the most perfect combo.
I highly recommend that if you don’t already, that you start having oatmeal for breakfast. And not just the tiny little 1 minute packet you get from the store, but 2/3 of oats, and top it with whatever you want! I promise you it will not disappoint, and you will love it!
To make my oats, i simply pour 2/3 cups of dry oats into a bowl. I add 1 tsp. of brown sugar and a few almonds and/or cashews. I boil water, pour it in, and mix it up until i get the texture i like (not too watery, not to stuck together). Then i add peanut butter and fresh fruit! It’s that simple, and it’s a perfect start to my day!
