We all have busier weeks when you are don’t have the time to eating well or just craving all those carbs. Right? For sure I do have those more and more lately. My solution is Oats!
I find the easiest way to get back on track with the healthy nutritionist meals is starting each day right, with a healthy breakfast.
Did you know oats are loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant plant compounds? Half a cup (78 grams) of dry oats contains:
- Manganese: 191% of the RDI
- Phosphorus: 41% of the RDI
- Magnesium: 34% of the RDI
- Copper: 24% of the RDI
- Iron: 20% of the RDI
- Zinc: 20% of the RDI
- Folate: 11% of the RDI
- Vitamin B1 (thiamin): 39% of the RDI
- Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): 10% of the RDI
- Smaller amounts of calcium, potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B3 (niacin)
This is coming with 51 grams of carbs, 13 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat, and 8 grams of fiber, but only 303 calories.
This means that oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.
And with mixing up a few ingredients or topping, you can completely transfer it. My Autumn favorite is honeycomb granola some figs (or any fresh fruits) some cacao nibs and the most important is maple butter. The ultimate flavor of the season.
