Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. My mom always tells me that I take after my Tatay (Dad), eager to eat minutes after waking up.
These days, I’ve been enjoying oatmeal like never before.
Thanks to the wonderful influence of KERF. It’s a blog by Kath, a registered dietician who loves oatmeal and has made many variations of it.
I plan to try all her oatmeal recipes.
I’ve tried the microwaved oatmeal many times in the past but I recently realized that it cannot beat the stove-top version in terms of texture and creaminess.
Oats + milk + banana + peanut butter make one powerful breakfast already.
To add to the punch is my latest health discovery: Chia Seeds. Ta dah!
As it is not so popular here in the Philippines, I didn’t find them in the supermarkets I went to (SM, Hitop, Puregold).
Chia Seeds have a slightly nutty flavor and since they become gel-like when mixed with water, they add fluffiness to oatmeal.
Finally, it’s a blessing to have friends who are health conscious and generous.
Yesteday, our friends, Butch and Pinas gave us our first taste of rambutans this year (’tis the season!).
Boyet and Sussie gave us Guyabano Leaves Tea.
Ready to face the day!
Thank you, Lord.
