What I eat for breakfast.
Every nutritionist would tell you that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
I confess: I like in the early morning having a good rich and sweet breakfast. My habits change from season to season, but during the winter is the oatmeal my preferred one.
Oat is a good source of fibers and carbs, loaded with manganese, magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, phosphorus, vitamins b1 and b5. The reason why the cooked oat (in water or vegetable milk) forms a creamy gel is that it contains the beta-glucan which reduces the cholesterol and sugar blood. It takes really just 5 minutes to prepare your daily oatmeal, almost the time you need to make a coffee! Lately, I am adding to my oatmeal some powder to boost the benefits, like “Protein Golden Bowl” by Lebepur that contains sunflowers seeds protein, curcuma, cinnamon, almond protein, and pepper. I usually top it with half banana, blueberries, some nuts, cacao nibs and cacao and alfalfa seeds (rich in vitamins). I like having a several cups of herbs tea, but the one the I like to have for breakfast is the Sea Buckthorn one ).
…now and then a giggling trail of mermaids appeared in our wake. We fed them oatmeal.
