Health food - oatmeal

Dear readers,
first of all: very sorry about the formatting, Blogger force is not with me today! Hope, you will still like this post. If so, don't hesitate to let me know!
"Oatmeal? I'm not eating that, it’s baby food! "Oatmeal we connect automatically with muesli or porridge. Many have completely stopped eating oatmeal because they supposedly make you fat. But – surprise, surprise - oats are much better than their very limited reputation!

7 good reasons to eat oats

1. They are incredibly nutritious. Nutritionally, oats is the most valuable grain (protein and fiber).

2. Until the 19th century oats were a staple and were also used for healing purposes.

3. The combination of vitamin E and B1 regulates blood sugar levels and strengthens the immune system.

4. A powerhouse of minerals ensures beautiful skin and strong nails (copper, zinc and manganese).

5. Oats protects the stomach, they can relieve many digestion problems or even correct them completely.

6. Yes, oatmeal contains a lot of calories, but satisfies you for a long time, keeps the cholesterol in check and regulates the blood fat. Oats can in fact support your journey of losing weight.

7. Oatmeal is due to its composition, the ideal health food.

Oatmeal with soy yogurt, fresh fruit and nuts is an extremely nutritious and healthy breakfast. I personally can easily survive on a good portion of this until dinner.

But oats are not only great for breakfast. Try to prepare fish or meat in an oatmeal crust.

Pork chops in oatmeal crust (1 person)

-1 egg
-80g pork cutlet
-approx 20g rolled oats
-1 Tsp sunflower oil

Whisk the egg. Wash cutlet, pat dry and season with salt and pepper and coat it in egg. Sprinkle with oatmeal all around. Heat oil in a small frying pan and fry steak over medium heat about 4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan.

Any vegetables will nicely complement this dish, have 2 potatoes with it to complete it.

Very delicious as well and vegetarian is the following recipe

Oatmeal and cauliflower patties (2 persons)

125 g cauliflower, coarsely grated
50 g oatmeal
1 egg
12 g of sesame
25 g curd (soybean curd)
50 g spicy cheese, grated
½ onion finely chopped,
1/2TL vegetable broth
Salt and pepper
Whole grain bread crumbs 
Sunflower oil 
Ground nutmeg

Mix the grated cauliflower with the oatmeal, cheese, sesame and egg. Add the chopped onion and the curd. Spice up the mass and mix again thoroughly. The mass should not be too wet, if so, add some breadcrumbs. The mass then can be let to stand for 20 minutes.
After that, form small patties and fry them in hot oil. If you like, the patties, can be breaded before frying with some breadcrumbs. Serve the patties with a colorful salad or even combine them with a fish filet.

Another very nice dish from this part of the world you will find under the following link: http://www.sailusfood.com/2012/09/12/lemon-oats-indian-breakfast-recipe/

Recipes under this link http://saraniyapt.blogspot.com/2012/05/oats-breakfast-recipes.html most of will probably not like for breakfast as we do in Asia, but they would also make healthy lunches.

So let us re-integrate the good old oatmeal into our diet, because oatmeal is not just watery porridge with malaise. But it is that as well!
