I’m starting to get tired of eating my oats with coffee, good thing I saw former VJ Nadya’s oatmeal post in instagram, so I made my own version of it:
Today’s Good: Cinnamon oats with flaxseed & blueberries
2 tbsp rolled oats
1 heaping tsp flaxseed meal
1.5 cups water
2 packets nonfat creamer (this is the only milk type we have at home today, but u could use a healthier one, like almond milk or soy)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp muscovado
1 tablespoonful of dried blueberries
Sorry for the ugly photo, but it tastes really good!
So what’s good about flax seed? Here’s what I read in about.com:
It may be tiny, but it’s mighty: The flax seed carries one of the biggest nutrient payloads on the planet. And while it’s not technically a grain, it has a similar vitamin and mineral profile to grains, while the amount of fiber, antioxidants, and Omega-3 fatty acids in flax leaves
grains in the dust.
Additionally, flax seed is very low in carbohydrates, making it ideal for people who limit their intake of starches and sugars. And its combination of healthy fat and high fiber content make it a great food for weight loss and maintenance — many dieters have found that flax seed has been a key to keeping them feeling satisfied.
In other news…
