Hello, young Padawan
In those … “without adjective” times, I thought that a second breakfast recipe could give you some strength and good vibes to save lives, to work, to teach your kids, to tinker … or to watch Netflix. After all, we have only one here (breakfast recipe on the blog, try to follow me, lol, ed), but it’s just an “official” one because the buddha bowl and many snacks here and there on this blog can do this job. In short, breakfast, then.
For this mid-winter, mid-spring, mid-paper-toilet-chase season, the most important thing is to adapt yourself with the seasonal fruits that you can found, as close as possible from where you live, to the easiest possible. It is only an example of a recipe that will then vary according to the seasons, your desires and what you have at home.
A few ingredients will, however, be there to provide the basis for the recipe: small germinated oatmeal, spices, and humectant, like oat milk in here.
To avoid sweeping too much the intestines when you already eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, like with a vegetarian or vegan diet, for example, it is useful to choose them small. In fact, the larger they are, the more difficult they are to chew and the more they tend to be swallowed whole.
Choosing them germinated brings less resistant starch, and above all a better digestibility. If you don’t find them in your organic grocery store, you can still choose classic oatmeal, because soaking them overnight without cooking simulates germination, it will improve digestibility too. But hey, the excellent is the better, as they say.
Oatmeal thus cooked in overnight porridge have a low GI, they reduce the intestinal absorption of carbohydrates. If you want more info on the glycemic index, it’s here.
With iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, many other minerals and a high content of vitamin E, oatmeal ensure beautiful skin, good nervous system functioning, and good bone mineralization. Oats help the liver to produce lecithin and thus get rid of toxins in the body.
They also help lower cholesterol thanks to the beta-glucan they contain. With a beneficial action on transit and satiety, they regulate hunger and small intestinal disorders. And finally, oats are a great source of protein with no less than 8 amino acids.
For one serving
– 1/2 cup of small germinated organic oatmeal (depending on physical activity, gender, and body size, the proportions can range from 1/2 cup to a cup, if you are Michael Phelps, for example, lol).
– A cup of oat milk (you just double the quantity of vegetable milk compared to oatmeal, but for a lighter recipe it is possible to make half and half with water.
– 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
– A pinch of Madagascar vanilla powder
– 2 nuts, or a few hazelnuts …
– A small kiwi
– A mini banana (or 1/2 normal banana)
Optional: A small handful of goji berries, which can be replaced by two dried apricots, a few dry raisins, or fresh fruits such as blueberries or blackberries in season, or any other fruit that kicks you (apple, pear, raspberries …), or a few dried coconut chips, you are the artist.
The night before, pour the oatmeal and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir, add the oat milk, with water or not, then stir again. It takes 20 seconds, all tidy up included. Eh, we are not on a puff pastry recipe, lol. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, cut the half-banana and the kiwi into slices, then place them in the bowl over the oats. Sprinkle a pinch of vanilla powder over the bananas, add the nuts or hazelnuts and the dried fruit and/or berries of your choice, and enjoy your meal.
A good breakfast that will energize the body, just as we like it.
And if you haven’t eaten all of it, you can apply the rest of your porridge to your face for 5 min, massage gently and rinse: healthy and soft skin guaranteed. Before doing that, always do a test in the inside of the elbow; I remind that there is a little cinnamon in the recipe, it is purifying, but it can be irritating for some.
With that in mind, there are a lot of great things to do at home after teleworking and kids’ home school. A youtube sports video for example (I like fitness blender or the yoga channel “Yoga with Adrienne”), a little family cooking time, a good book, some music!
Working with music makes me more productive, if you are in this case too, I recommend two albums for telework: The Cure, Seventeen Seconds (1980) and Faith (1981). Two concepts album from The Cure that are absolutely brilliant, inspiring, and which, I think, stimulate brainpower. Or you can also put on some Pink Floyd, all of it, lol. With this breakfast and this playlist, if you don’t turn into Einstein, I eat my cap.
Enjoy this moment at your turntable, and “Bon appetit”.
