berry chia oatmeal

This is probably one of the easiest and quickest Breakfast recipes. The night before take a bowl or a mason jar, pop in your dry ingredients, mix it with the liquids and just let it sit in the fridge until needed. 

The combination of complex carbs (oats), healthy fats (chia seeds, almond milk) are such a powerful combination. The protein content of oats is up tp 17g Protein per 100g oats, which makes them one of the protein richest grains. 

Flavourwise go nuts! My favourite toppings are blueberries, raspberries, coconut shreds, hemp hearts or bananas and a dollop of peanut butter.  Depending on the season I top it up with apples, strawberries, apricots, pears, plums... To add a crunchy consistency, all kinds of nuts are always a good choice. You can even toast them to make them extra crisp and delicious. If you want something creamy, add a spoon of your favourite yogurt. 

Oatmeal

Besides it great macronutrient profile, oats are very good source of manganese, selenium, and phosphorus, magnesium and iron. The high fiber content of oats (especially in oat bran, beta-glucan) together with polyunsaturated fatty acids help to lower cholesterol levels. Further it is shown to stabilize blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes.
