In childhood, the healthy breakfast dishes that parents loved to serve were called porridge or simply muesli. Now diet gurus like food bloggers have chosen the oatmeal they contain as a nutrition trend. The preparation is new: the oat flakes are no longer boiled to a pulp in hot milk, but are soaked overnight as a hip yogurt-fruit-flake mix and made into overnight oats. A guide for the correct preparation - and an outlook on the figure that arises when you eat oatmeal every day.
Oatmeal is a natural, fiber-rich whole-grain product that is particularly rich in antioxidants, minerals, and trace elements such as magnesium, copper, iron, phosphorus, and zinc due to the grain it contains and also has a notable plus in vegetable proteins, long-chain - that is, figure-friendly - carbohydrates and unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamin B1 and folic acid.
Due to the favorable composition of various energy and health sources, they are considered an effective power food by connoisseurs. Among other things: Magnesium and folic acid prevent exhaustion and tiredness, vitamin B1 also strengthens the nervous system and promotes a healthy energy metabolism, protein provides valuable energy and supports muscle building, unsaturated fatty acids protect the cells, and promote regeneration and growth processes.
Not only because of the protein content it contains, but oat flakes are also particularly popular with athletes and self-optimizers. The high fiber and protein content of oatmeal ensures a long-lasting feeling of satiety, which effectively counteracts cravings and reduces the desire for sweets and fast food. In addition, experts count a lower cholesterol and blood sugar level as well as a lower risk of heart disease to the benefits of breakfast cereals.
Whole grain products such as oatmeal also provide important minerals that promote the beauty of skin, hair, and nails - zinc and biotin in particular are considered effective beauty boosters. The complexion appears clearer and rosier, the hair and nails are stronger and healthier. In addition, the vitamins contained act as antioxidants and protect the cells from the inside against free radicals, UV radiation, and toxic fine dust; essential fatty acids ensure smooth, well-nourished skin. Oatmeal works as a wrinkle killer.
In the evening, put about 150 grams of oat flakes in a bowl, cling box, or mason jar and pour some liquid such as water, low-fat milk, or soy milk until the flakes are completely covered. Stir in other ingredients such as seeds or fruits with a spoon or add in layers. Then close the jar and place it in the refrigerator overnight. Open in the morning and either enjoy the rich cereal immediately or refine it with other ingredients such as nuts, chia seeds, or yogurt - and then eat.
