On Sunday I decided to take the day off and relax to recharge for the following day and week. By my side were my two loyal sidekick Nala and Diniro, who later on left to lounge alongside my dad. Since Sundays are meal prepping day I went ahead and made a batch of steel cut oats to for breakfast and have ready for a few days. I usually use instant oats but now I’ve turned to steel cut oats and love the texture once it's cooked. My way of prepping a bowl is topping it with fresh fruits or a spoon full of peanut butter and shredded coconut with bee pollen. It all depends on what I'm craving. The one thing I always add is almond or coconut milk. I must have my morning cup of milk to get going otherwise I feel like something is off. About 7 years ago I made the transition from cows milk to almond and coconut milk and love it. I pour it on everything and it 's perfect for smoothies.
Here's a simple and easy recipe to steel cut oats that fuels and treats your body from the inside out. Remember, if you are training for anything you have eat enough since you will be burning more calories than usual. This recipe is easy, healthy, and quick.
