Oatmeal has a reputation for being boring, but it is far from it. Sure, oat is easy, but that's what makes it a perfect canvas to experiment with. You can make them sweet or spicy and they can cook or not, but whatever you do, your oatmeal will always taste pretty damnably spectacular. With a little bit of creativity in the end, you can easily eat it everyday without getting full.
And why do not you want that? Oatmeal contains nutrients such as fiber and protein, which means you will be energized until your next meal. Moreover, it is easy to prepare for inexperienced house cooks. As long as you're sure to add other delicious, nutritious toppings that make up a full meal (like fruits or vegetables, protein sources like Greek yogurt or fried eggs and healthy fats like seeds or nut butters), registered dieticians say this is a great addition to Be your everyday life.
Whether you already eat oatmeal every day and look for fresh ideas to spice it up, or you want to start eating more often, these are the best ways to keep it exciting. If you add a dash of cocoa powder for baking, you should try these ideas as soon as possible.
Start experimenting with the different types of oats.
First, there is not just one variety of oats there are several. Steel-cut, quick-cooked, old-fashioned – these varieties taste different and delicious in their own way. For example, Steel-Cut has a mouthfeel like rice, which is great for hearty risotto dishes, but not so good for oatmeal. On the other hand, the old-fashioned oats are perfect for anything you want to soak overnight. However, if you want a quick, non-prepared oatmeal (such as cereal), you are well-prepared with quick-preparing oatmeal. However, do not feel tied to these pairings. Feel free to experiment with the different types of oats in a way that you think would taste good.
Try baked oatmeal – it's great for preparing meals!
RD, owner of Tasty Balance Nutrition tells SELF. "[It’s] is basically a casserole, offering a firmer version of oatmeal," which explains that it's great for preparing meals, she explains. It's easy to slice and get even easier on the way to the door. And a recipe equals a number of servings, so you can have enough for the whole week in one fell swoop. Try this recipe to get started.
Let your oat taste like your favorite dessert.
There are so that there are many great recipes with dessert oatmeal. Love carrot cake? There is an oatmeal recipe that tastes . The same goes for apple pie cheesecake and so much more.
Or give your breakfast a savory touch.
"Oatmeal does not have to be sweet," Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in New York City area, says SELF, "There are so many ways to make it tasty." To make a big, hearty oatmeal it's as easy as cooking steel oats boiled in sharks instead of water. It can be eaten in a bowl-shaped style and garnished with fresh-cut vegetables and hard-boiled eggs, or it can be made into soups such as rice porridge, a type of porridge that is common in East Asia. Or you can just take a simple bowl of oatmeal and loll it before burying. Gorin likes a splash of pesto, but you can really use whatever you want.
If in doubt, a pinch of cocoa powder will never hurt.
Both Gorin and Pine recommend adding a touch of cocoa powder to your oatmeal if you need something else. It's super easy and turns your morning oat into a chocolaty treat.
Or treat yourself to a touch of coffee and get caffeine and breakfast in one go.
I love the idea of a oatmeal latte . It gives you the caffeine jolt and fills you up and it tastes incredible. You can infuse your oats with coffee in various ways – either add some espresso flour (which is ground very finely) to your oats during cooking, or top it up with a dash of espresso or brewed coffee. It's an affogato. In any case, your breakfast will probably be great.
Add some protein.
Adding egg white to your oatmeal is a super easy way to increase protein content and make its texture light and fluffy. To do this, add one tablespoon of egg white to your oats after they were removed from the heat (if you add them over the heat, the eggs may crumble). Then bring your oat to a low heat with constant stirring until it solidifies, which takes about two to three minutes. Try this recipe to get you started.
Do not forget the oatmeal overnight.
If you love oatmeal but hate cooking, consider Oatmeal . To make them, you just need to combine oats with your moist ingredients and let them sit overnight. They are plump, tasty and ready to eat when you wake up.
And if you like your oats cold, try cereal.
If you love cold oats, but do not forget to set it up overnight oats the night before, cereal might just be for you. Muesli is just raw oats, sometimes with nuts or dried fruits or seeds, always covered with something wet like milk or yogurt. You can top it up with milk and eat right away, or you can soak and dig quickly (10 minutes should be more than enough time).
With these tricks that make oatmeal, you will never get bored of your breakfast.
