Oatmeal Breakfast Ideas

Oatmeal is not that popular in France and I didn’t had a proper introduction to it until last summer when touring Canada. Cooking oatmeal is quite an art when you want to obtain the perfect consistency: neither too dry nor too diluted. I usually use less water than mentionned on the packaging. As for how to accommodate oatmeal, I suggest maple sirop and cinnamon as your basis to which you can add blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples, apricots (make sure they are really ripe and sweet) or bananas. For an extra boost of energy, you can add dried fruits like almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts.

Oatmeal is healthy for you because it is rich in fibres and minerals like magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, iron and manganese. It will give you energy and the feeling of fullness and satiety for the whole morning, making the 10 o’clock snack unnecessary. Plus, oatmeal is naturally gluten-free (check out the packaging when you go shopping to chose the right brand).

The pictures of this post were taken last summer during our 3-month Canada tour. You can tell by the yellow spoon-fork and our fancy aluminium can! If oatmeal isn’t your cup of tea, maybe red fruit granola with almond milk will do? Or the delicious chocolate chip muffins from the “Eat Well” section? Whichever option you choose, have a lavish breakfast, lovely readers!!!
