Quick Start

The easiest breakfast ever! You probably heard about overnight porridge already. It’s the best, easiest and fastest breakfast you can make and it’s also nutritious and it releases its energy slowly. What more do you want?! The recipe I’m giving you is quite a basic recipe, but it’s how I make it. You can make lots of varieties. This one is a bit like a chia pudding too. Chia seed is full of fiber, protein, omega-3 and it has various micronutrients. This makes it a perfect way to start your day. The best is that it’s very easy to make. You make it before you go to sleep (will only take 1 minute, don’t worry!) and it’ll be ready for you the next morning. What means that even when you’re in a rush, you can still enjoy a nutritious breakfast that will keep you going all morning.

img_8153Today a super super easy recipe, but also a very helpful and healthy recipe! Sounds good right? Easy, because it only has 4 ingredients (and one of them is water). Helpful, because you can use it in so many things. Like overnight porridge, smoothies, over cereal, with granola or to make granola, in tea or coffee and anything you can think of needing milk. Healthy, because it includes oats, it only has a tiny bit of agave nectar and a pinch of salt. The only thing you need, what is maybe not that common, is a nut milk bag (or you can also use a cheese cloth). You can easily order those from Amazon, so please don’t let this scare you away. Because it’s super fun and nice to make.

-1 cup oats
-4 cups water
-1/2 tsp agave nectar
-Pinch of salt

-Put the water, the agave nectar and the salt with the oats and let it soak for 3 min.
-Blend, for 2 minutes. Strain with a nut bag.

Oatshew

img_6691A creamy, filling and delicious breakfast for champions. This breakfast is super nutritious and full of goodness. I often eat this after my work out. It’s full of proteins, fibres and good fats. Great for my body to release some new energy and to heal my muscles. As I most of the time work out in the evenings, I soak the cashews and seeds overnight. I blend it the next morning and then add the oats and the coconut. This way it’s ready for me when I come back in the evening. I don’t always add fruit, sometimes just peanut butter is nice enough. Only just sometimes I like to add some berries. Especially blueberries are a favourite. Give this recipe a try, especially when you’re a very busy and active person.

Cosy Winter

41eb821f-83be-4ba4-be89-81a31ab65ec9It’s coooldd!! I don’t like cold.. my body is just not made for the cold. I swear I’ll move to a warmer country one day. Until then, I better find way s to keep myself warm. What do you think of some warm comforting porridge? Sounds good, doesn’t it?! This week I present you a sweet, but fruity porridge. Porridge is a great way to start your morning (or your afternoon.. or you evening..). It’s filling and it’s energy releases slowly, what makes sure it keeps you going for longer. So if you have a busy day ahead, porridge really is the best. This porridge is very yummy, with a lovely apricot sauce. Apricots contain vitamin A and that’s important, especially in the winter. Without vitamin A, you can’t absorb vitamin D. We get vitamin D from sunlight, but as there isnt’t sufficient sunlight in the winter you need to try to be in the sun as much as you can. However, if you do not have enough vitamin A in your body, you’re wasting your chance to take in vitamin D. So pour lots of this goodness over your porridge.
