I’m sorry. I feel very ridiculous posting this recipe. It’s extremely easy but so yummy! Delicious doesn’t have to be complicated.
This is my daily breakfast on uni days. It’s easy to prep, to take on the go and very filling. And most importantly, it keeps my blood sugar levels stable. The toppings are different every day but the basic recipe is always the same and for good reason:
- oatmeal is a good source of fiber, is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, improves blood sugar control and provides stable energy throughtout the day.
- protein powder serves me for a protein kick with breakfast and helps me keep my blood sugar stable until lunch.
- banana moderates blood sugar levels after a meal, contains a lot of vitamins and powerful antioxidants of course and improves digestive health.
- the pumpkin seeds are for magnesium and zinc. Zinc has beneficial effects on learning and memory and helps with low blood sugar problems. Magnesium improves PMS symptoms, has anti-inflammatory properties and aids with sleep.
So now that we’ve covered the why, let’s dive into the recipe!
Hope you try it for breakfast some time!
