Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. We hear it all the time, it must be true. And it is. It starts your day off strong and will keep down snacking.
Of course, that depends on what you eat for breakfast. Breakfasts full of sugars are going to burn off quickly. What you want is something rich in protein and fiber. Enter oatmeal. It’s packed with nutrients to start your day off right. Plus, oatmeal helps reduce cholesterol (if that’s something you need to worry about.)
The trouble is oatmeal can often end up mushy, or even worse, look like glue. The answer is proper cooking and the proper oatmeal. Instant oatmeal (the kind in packets) is often loaded in sugar and loses much of its nutritional value.
But you don’t have time to actually cook oatmeal? Wrong, it’s so easy and with a pressure cooker you can have you eating healthy in no time.
With a pressure cooker (I use an instapot but there are others out there) all it takes is a few minutes to throw the ingredients into the appliance. You set it and then go about the rest of your morning routine. By the time you’re done, you have oatmeal.
Even better, it stores in the fridge for a week and can be heated up. Just add your favorite nut milk to the oatmeal (you need more liquid to keep it from becoming glue), pop it into the microwave and heat it up. Easy.
So, no more complaining that you can’t eat healthy for breakfast. You can do it and it doesn’t take all morning and it doesn’t require a chef’s education.
