Breakfast is really the most important meal of the day. But many of us skip it because we don’t make the time to prepare and eat it.
Oats can be a quick and easy breakfast. It takes me 5 minutes to prepare it every morning. While they're cooking, I brush my teeth, wash my face and begin getting ready for my day.
If you really struggle getting out the door on time in the morning, you can also prepare oats the night before. Just reheat in the morning or, let them soak with plant-milk over night and eat them cold.
And oats are an awesome food to eat for breakfast! One cup has 8g of fiber, 307 calories, 10.6g of protein, 42mg of calcium, 293 mg of potassium, 26mcg of folate and 0 cholesterol (1). Not to mention all of the high nutritional value from the added fruits and or nuts that normally accompany them.
Oatmeal is really filling and 2/3 C easily keeps me filled for 3-4 hours. Other breakfast foods such as eggs and bacon are loaded with fat, cholesterol, zero fiber and less bulk so you could end up eating more calories and become hungrier sooner, further increasing the amount of calories you could eat in day.
