Healthy Pudding Oatmeal: There is always a story to everything .
I always loved cooked oatmeal! My passion for oatmeal started when I was about twenty and I rented my first own tiny apartment. I think renting your first own apartment is a very important milestone for every young adult. Not only is it a sign for getting independent, no you’ll collect your first experiences what it is like to live without your parents. No cooked meals, nobody who does your dirty laundry and of course nobody who always complains how messy your room looks 😉 .
I always loved breakfasts which were warm and easy to make and since I was a total beginner in making my own breakfast I did what everyone did when they have no plan. They google. I found a fairly easy recipe for a cooked oatmeal and this was the beginning of my oatmeal career.
I can cook my morning oatmeals in about 100 different ways. In one of my reasoned experiments I wanted to create an oatmeal with a more creamy consistence with less oats, which means less carbs and more proteins. Perfect for a healthy lifestyle diet.
Healthy Pudding Oatmeal and how I achieved the creamy consistency .
Naturally there is milk. Cow milk and plant based milk of course, cream and yoghurt which in my opinion is not the most ideal add-in to a hot oatmeal.
I wanted to achieve a creamy more stocked consistency so that I could use less oats which in order meant less carbs. Therefore its has to be either corn starch or pudding powder which actually is a kind of starch only flavoured.
So the cooking games begun and 2 weeks later after countless healthy pudding oatmeal tries, a lot of dirty bowls and a chaotic messy kitchen I had my perfect consistency 😉 and a husband who refuses to eat one more bite of this delicious dish. He meant he had enough :-)))
Healthy Pudding Oatmeal and its healthy nutritional benefits!
Collagen is essential to your health. It is the most abundant protein in the body and is available in your muscles, skin, blood, bones, cartilage and ligaments. The good news is that your body produces it on a regular basis, The bad new, it does slow down with age. Thats why I added it to my morning dish. Since it has a lot of benefits like: easing joint pain, promoting skin elasticity, helps building muscles and burn fat and it may reduce cellulite and may reverse skin aging. To stay plant based please make sure to use plant based collagen powder.
Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. It not only gives curry its unique yellow coloring its main ingredient is curcumin and therefore has powerful anti- inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
Chia seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients. It has very few calories and are loaded with antioxidants, fibre, high quality protein and are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
I jus love cinnamon and have to add it to almost everything 😉 . But cinnamon is not only the most delicious spice in the world next to vanilla. It has a lot of benefits too. First it is high on antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, may reduce the risk of heart disease and it also helps lower blood sugar.
Oats is the main ingredient of my breakfast. It is also full of good nutrients like magnesium, iron, zinc, folate, vitamin B. Whole oats are rich in Antioxidants, and fibre, can lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar.
I hope you will enjoy this delicious and healthy plant based breakfast recipe. It is my new go to recipe when ever I need something warm and delicious.
