Oatmeal in a cup - tasty instant dish!

An oatmeal (or porridge) is one of the most popular breakfast dishes. What makes it so popular? Is oatmeal healthy? How to prepare oatmeal?

Nutritional values of oatmeal

Oatmeal’s main ingredient are oat flakes derived from oat grains. They are a rich source of proteins including eight essential amino acids. Oat flakes contain vitamins B and E and several minerals: selenium, calcium, iodine and magnesium. In addition, oat flakes have a lot of fiber and pro-health beta-glucan. Both compounds have a great effect on our digestive system. Regular consumption of porridge improves also our immune system. High levels of omega-3 and linoleic acid lower cholesterol and support our heart and brain health. Great advantages of oatmeal are its nutritious and filling properties.

How to prepare a porridge?

Oatmeal as a breakfast dish can take many forms. Oautmeal in a cup is a typical convenience dish. Its advantage is its easiness in preparation. Just pour the contents with boiling water or hot milk and wait a few minutes. The cup form is very convenient for transport, for example in a purse or in a backpack, to work or to school. One can eat straight from the cup. If a packing contains a folding spoon, even a cutlery is not necessary to start consumption. Thanks to its tight packaging and minimal storage requirements, porridge is a perfect dish for long trips, even in difficult weather conditions.

What to add to a porridge?

Oatmeal can be mixed up with many delicious, functional toppings. Dried or freeze-dried (lyophilisated) fruits are perfect addition, e.g.: banana, coconut, strawberries, apples with cinnamon, cranberries, pomegranates, raspberries and others. For those with taste for very sweet dishes chocolate or caramel porridge is recommended. Fitness amateurs should opt for porridge with protein powder and nuts to benefit from both amino acids and energy.
