Why eat oatmeal if you want to lose weight?
Oatmeal is made from oats and contains a lot of fiber that quickly gives you a feeling of satisfaction.
It contains a lot of protein and little fat.
It lowers your blood sugar level (fewer peaks in your blood sugar level) and gives you a (stable) energy for a long time.
When you eat it regularly, you lower your cholesterol level in a natural way.
Ingredients for 1 Person
1 cup of oatmeal
2 cups of almond milk, oat milk or other vegetable milk
Teaspoon of cinnamon
Half hand of walnuts
Half hand of almonds
I always let the oatmeal last for a night (not necessarily) in cold water so you do not have to cook it in the morning and the oatmeal is easy to digest.
Put a cup of oatmeal (more or less according to energy requirements) together with 2 cups of cold water or vegetable milk in a pan. Cover the pan with a lid or cling film and put it in the refrigerator.
In the morning, remove the pan from the refrigerator and place it on a medium heat.
When it is boiling, turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally and stay close because it burns quickly. I speak from experience ;-).
Put the oatmeal in a bowl and stir in a teaspoon of cinnamon.
Cut the strawberries into slices and garnish the oatmeal together with raspberries and blueberries.
Finally sprinkle the walnuts and almonds over it and eat tasty!
As an alternative or variation you can also prepare the oatmeal with slices of apple instead of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Or choose your own fruit combination that you like best. For example, you can also choose pieces of pineapple, pear, mango, cherry, or orange. Be creative 🙂
We regularly get the question “Do you have to cook oatmeal first before you can eat it?”.
In principle, it is not necessary to cook the oatmeal first before you eat it. Most intestines have no problem digesting raw oatmeal.
I sometimes hear a few times that people find it hard on the stomach. But these are exceptions and this feeling usually disappears after eating a few times.
However, fast cooking oatmeal (the one on the package with a cooking time of 5 minutes) is easier to digest when you eat it raw than raw langkookhavermout. Oatmeal is also easier to digest when you let it soak overnight.
Preparing oatmeal with almond milk
I make it myself with water. I advise everyone to do this too. It may take some getting used to, but if you eat it for a few weeks it will get used to for most people. Just try it for a few weeks at least. And if you really do not get used to it, you can try it with oat milk, almond milk or soy milk.
I do not drink cow’s milk myself. It could cause mucus around your organs and mucous membranes. Others claim that soymilk contains growth and female hormones. Also the soy would often be genetically manipulated. But yes, could the small amount of 6% soy in soy milk be harmful? I think we do not have to worry about that.
I can not tell you with certainty … I do not have the wisdom to rent and I think that more research needs to be done. In any case, I would not just listen to the producers and marketers;-)
If you doubt cow’s milk or soy milk then there are fortunately enough healthy alternatives. In addition to the above-mentioned milks, you can also prepare the oatmeal with hazelnut milk or rice milk (thanks for your tip Danielle).
These healthy milks are available at health food stores and nowadays also in most supermarkets. Buy the varieties that contain little or no sugar or sweeteners. This alternative milk is also suitable for people with lactose intolerance (note: do not drink almond milk or hazelnut milk if you have a nut allergy).
My experience: This healthy oatmeal breakfast feels like it gives your body exactly what it needs . I have been eating it for years and I feel good about it. You get a lot of energy and the many fibers in the oatmeal also give you a feeling of satisfaction.
