Healthy breakfast - Oats


Salam all,

Urmm ..... what's for breakfast? Nasi lemak? Roti canai? Tosai? Or perhaps Lontong? Which would you prefer? Having those items for breakfast are really mouth-watering and filling, BUT, mind the calories. At times we need to furnish our body with a healthy filling too. Why not try the oat meal for breakfast. You can make a variety of oat meal.

Health facts about oats:


Researchers found that antioxidants in oats actually obstruct the ability of blood cells to stick to artery walls.

This will reduce the possibility of heart attack.


Oatmeal is thought to be one of the few foods that can actually help lower cholesterol. This is because oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which is thought to decrease the amount of cholesterol absorbed by the intestines. Values below are for one cup of cooked oatmeal, no salt added.

Besides fiber, oats also contain proteins, fat and minerals.

Mine is the simplest version: (what to do.... always running against time)

Ingredients:

2 or 3 table spoon of rolled oats (I did not take instant oats)
1 cup fresh milk
1 tablespoon honey

Put everything to boil in a pot. Once boiled and the oats is tender, its ready to be served. You can add any fruits of your like. Besides adding taste to it, it will also add the nutritional value in your diet. Among fruits that I have tested are thinly sliced apples, kiwi, strawberry and banana. I have yet to try mango, but I will try it next time. Adding nuts and raisins will also add to the taste.

By having this for breakfast at about 7.30am, it could really last me till noon or sometime more. its very filling.

Do try it.
