Oatmeal: You Haven’t Even Seen its Final Form

Have you ever heard the term “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”? Well there is good reason for that as it is the first meal of the day. Considering that, whatever you eat for breakfast will dictate your body’s performance for the rest of day so we must be a little choosy with what we put in our tummy for brekkie.

Now I know it is very enticing to scarf down some crispy-golden hashbrowns, succulent sausages dripping in meaty juices or fluffy pancakes coated with syrup and layered with butter when you first start the day but hang on just a second here…Do you know what that will do to your system for the rest of the day? Well chances are the sausages will cause indigestion, the hashbrowns will make you gassy and the pancakes will make you feel sleepy and lethargic for the rest of the day.

So why not enjoy a hearty bowl of oatmeal in the morning? I know what you all are thinking, “ew its so boring” or “I hate oatmeal” trust me I had the exact same thoughts until I actually figured out the versatility and nutritional value of the humble oatmeal. Just take a look at some of these videos and you might just might give it a try!

Now doesn’t that look amazing? If you’re still adamant about not giving oatmeal a try, perhaps these facts might persuade you. Oatmeal can lower down your cholesterol while also stabilizing your blood glucose level and it helps with digestion. Oh and oatmeal is also packed with vitamins and minerals that your body needs from magnesium, zinc, iron and so much more. An added plus is that it’s also gluten-free and helps with weight-loss.

Now by no means am I saying that you should stay clear of your beloved breakfast fares such as Nasi Lemak, sausages and pancakes, but it would also be good idea to incorporate something on the healthy side to start off your day with.
