As the most important meal of the day, breakfast should be rich and nutritious. If you’re having problems deciding what to eat in order to jumpstart your body, we have the perfect answer.
We’re going to show you how to prepare a nearly ideal breakfast made with ingredients that will regulate your blood sugar levels, give you an energy kick and help you lose weight as well.
The breakfast is actually a mixture of oats and chia seeds, which is a match made in heaven. Both ingredients contain numerous essential nutrients including fiber which can boost your metabolism and digestion in the morning and help you start losing weight. Besides this, they will also improve the function of many organs and keep everything running smooth.
Oatmeal is full of beta-glucan fiber which will keep your glucose levels in check and protect your heart. On the other hand, chia seeds contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as well as calcium, all important for your muscles, bones and the cardiovascular system. The seeds have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well, which makes them great against arthritis and other types of inflammatory conditions.
Here’s how to prepare the meal:
- 1 cup oats
- 4 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- A pinch of sea salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
Pour the water in a pot and add the vanilla and cinnamon, then cook the mixture until it boils and add the oats. Let the mixture boil again, then take it off the heat, leaving it to cool down for 5 minutes.
Next, add the salt and honey and stir well until they dissolve, then add the chia seeds last. Enjoy this healthy bowl of breakfast while it’s still hot and eat it every morning to boost your metabolism and start losing weight.
