Who doesn’t know this quote: Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper? To be honest, we haven’t really been living after this rule since a while as we just don’t have the time in the mornings to prepare a healthy breakfast. Also I’ve been trying intermittent fasting the last couple of weeks and I’m pretty impressed with it. I think I’ll even write a separate post about it soon 🙂
Anyways… During the week we’re usually super hectic to get out of the house and into the office – cause we’re sooo motivated to go to work ;). So no time to eat like a king. On weekends though, it’s a whole other story. We love trying different breakfast creations. The last experiment was an extremely healthy oat meal bowl. Et voilà:
Not only is it healthy, it fills you up till your next meal and even gives you a ton of energy if you’re planning on working out or going for a run. I’m trying to train for a half marathon, but I just don’t seem to be able to run more than 40 minutes. After this breakfast I was able to jog for 55 minutes. My personal longest time! Still far from my marathon, but hey, baby steps!
Here’s how we made the magic power bowl which keeps you running 15 minutes longer:
– 2 cups oat meal flakes
– 2 cups oat milk
– ½ teaspoon cinnamon
– A dash of vanilla
– 2 table spoons agave syrup
– 1 pomegranate
– Chopped almonds
– Shredded coconut
– Chia seeds
- Combine the oat meal flakes, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and some squirts of agave syrup in a pot. Cook it up over medium heat. Reduce heat slightly and let the porridge cook until it’s all slimy and thickened. Just how a porridge should be.
- Fill in a bowl and decorate with pomegranate, chopped almonds, shredded coconut and Chia seeds
Don’t eat the Chia seeds dry… they’re just pretty on the bowl. But before eating, mix ‘em up with the oat meal.
