You can shine even if it’s a rainy and gloomy day with this nutritious starry breakfast.
Have you ever used spelt in your overnight oats? It’s high time you do- it’s chewy, delicious and it’s a bit of a break from the good old porridge oats. We should not eat the same things over and over again and expect to get the full spectrum of macro- and #micronutrients in our diet.
#Variety is key. #Seasonal is key. #Balance is key. 🔑
Spelt is actually a wild wheat variety and it is one of the oldest foods of mankind. In the past it was widely used, but from the 20th century onwards it was replaced by bread #wheat as it was easier and cheaper to get higher yields. Spelt is the only crop not artificially changed by a human.
It is mainly comprised of carbohydrates, and it contains a good amount of fibre. It has been proven that fibre helps slow down digestion and absorption which contributes to the reduction of blood sugar spikes. This is especially important in people with type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease.
There are 7.6g of fibre in 100g spelt (The recommended amounts of fibre daily are 30g/day for adults).
This recipe is a total experiment (and it may sound weird) that turned out pretty good:
•20g #spelt (boiled with some water and salt)
•1/2 zucchini, shredded
•15g porridge #oats
•1/2 scoop #protein powder (I used chocolate)
•Honey (to taste)
Cook these in a small pan until you get the consistency of a #porridge.
Then, use #gelatin (#grassfed beef is preferable) and according to the instructions- mix it with the porridge. Put into your desired form and leave in the fridge for the night.
In the morning, mix coconut yogurt with some honey and top your “stars”. You can also put some more #honey on top if you like it sweeter🍯
