Why do I eat oatmeal every day?

Why do I eat oats every single morning? Because they are filling and give me so much energy to start off my day right and to be in a good mood. They are also the source of many vitamins, minerals and most importantly fiber. Did you know that majority of people don't meet their daily requirments for fiber? That's because they prefer bacon and eggs to oats and berries and that is a huge mistake. Not only bacon and eggs contain cholesterol and saturated fats, which are demaging to your health, but also don't provide you with sufficient amount of energy nor any fiber. Why? Because they consists of fats and proteins, not carbohydrates, which is a BAD THING. If you still believe that carbs make you fat, you should educate yourself more and stop believing those lies. Carbohydrates are preferable source of energy, just choose whole plant-based products over refined ones for optimal health results. 

But how to make oatmeal that actually taste good? It's really simple, there are so many different ways to make oatmeal, find which one works the best for you! You can microve oats with some water, boil them, pour boiling water over oats, eat them raw with some plant-based yogurt or make overnight oats. Personally, I prefer to cook my oatmeal on the stove, I find it the easiest to digest and it's so creamy!

1 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp flaxseeds
1 cup water
1 cup soy milk (or any other plant milk)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1 handful of berries
1 banana 

Put oats, flaxseeds and water into the pot, bring to the boiling, let it absorb all the water, then add soy milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and simmer for a couple of minutes. Place in a bowl, decorate with banana coins and berries. And there you have a nutritious, delicious breakfast that will keep you going for hours and improve your health!
