I love breakfast very much, it’s my favorite meal of the day. I love waking up kinda early, to set my alarm clock even though I’m not working, because when I wake up early, I have more energy to do stuff in the house. I like very much that time of the breakfast when I prepare for myself a bowl of something with a cup of tea or coffee.  

Lately, I’ve been very much into oatmeal, but sometimes I get bored of it, so I change it to something else a few days, and then, I get back to it.  Oatmeal can be a little bland and you can hate if you don’t make it taste better. 

Sometimes, to change my breakfast, I eat quinoa or spelt, and of course, sometimes I eat something else, like toast or just a smoothie, it depends on what I’m into that morning.

Oatmeal is a great thing to eat for breakfast because it boosts you energy and it fills you for a couple of hours because is slow digesting. So you will be full when it will be time for lunch, or of course, you can eat a snack between breakfast and lunch.

Medicaldaily website says that oatmeal protects the skin, supports weight loss and prevents diabetes between other cool stuff, so it’s a good thing to eat oatmeal for breakfast.

I started eating oatmeal some time ago and I can’t get enough of it, I eat it almost every morning, and I change it up a bit so that I will not get sick of it. Some days I eat something else but I always come back to oatmeal.

This recipe is really simple, it’s what I like and I eat most of the time.

Ingredients:

  • 150 g of rolled oats
  • 100 ml of almond milk
  • 20 g of sliced coconut
  • berries
  • a drizzle of agave syrup
  • chia seeds

In a small pot add the oats, agave syrup, and milk and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Pour it onto a plate and arrange the berries on top, the coconut and the chia seeds.

If you have frozen berries, add them to the pot and cook them for 5 minutes with the oats. You don’t have to thaw them. Serve the oatmeal with a cup of coffee or tea. 🙂
