Healthy Breakfast-First Step Towards Fitness
We know that our bodies and brains are at their optimum when fueled. Numerous studies
show that children who eat breakfast do well in school. Just as vehicles break down if running on empty reserves, our balance is thrown off and our bodies are put into extreme stress modes when we don’t give them the nutrients they need. In this section, I have included a variety of breakfasts filled with nourishing ingredients to satisfy you depending on your mood and appetite levels So eat your breakfast and power up your day!
Mood swings will even out, and you will pass your great energy on to whomever you meet and into whatever you do.
What makes this recipe so great is that soaking the oats not only makes them
much quicker to cook, it also makes them much easier to digest and more
beneficial, as the rich nutrients are being more fully absorbed. I fully recommend
doing this rather than buying “quick oats,” which have been denatured and have
lost some valuable nourishment.
Oats are known in many cultures to enhance intuition, endurance, and energy.
They are rich in B vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.
They are low in gluten.
Note: Soak oats and raisins overnight
1/3 cup (80 mL) oats
2/3 cup (160 mL) water for soaking oats
2 tsp lemon juice (or vinegar, yogurt,or kefir)
2 tbsp water for soaking raisins
½–¾ cup (125–185 mL) water for cooking
tsp good salt
agave nectar, to taste (optional)
In a medium bowl, add oats and soaking water. Stir in lemon juice, cover, and leave
to soak overnight. In a small bowl, add raisins and soaking water, cover and leave
to soak overnight. Then add both oats and raisins to a small saucepan with
additional cooking water and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer
until done. Stay close to the stove, as this will be done in about 5 minutes! Serve
with agave nectar if desired.
