Movin’ Together 2019 – Breaking the Fast
The Movin’ Together tools take a bite out of the incidence of cancer for those of us who use them!
Each Movin’ Together tool gives us an advantage and the Jumpstart Your Day/ Eating Breakfast tool is no exception! A typical breakfast contributes fiber and whole grains, which help prevent colorectal cancer according to the American Cancer Society.
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month so we want to remind everyone to stay healthy and eat breakfast!
How do we make time for breakfast? Do it the night before! Soaked oatmeal: Takes about five minutes to prepare! Each person gets to build their own breakfast using the following model.
Combine all ingredients in a mason jar. Soak overnight in the refrigerator.
Stir in the morning and add more liquid if desired, eating cold or warm.
Just remember the 1:1 ratio. You will soak 1 part liquid with 1 part oats overnight. For example, if you use 1/2 cup oats, you will use 1/2 cup milk which can be dairy, nut or soy milk.
You may add any of the following ingredients to make it your own!
Sweetener: honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, raw sugar
Nuts: shredded coconut, slivered almonds, chopped walnuts or pecans
Seeds: chia, sesame
Fruit: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, raisins, cranberries
Spices: cinnamon, nutmeg
Why oats? Eating low-calorie foods that are high in nutrients can provide us with the nutrients that our bodies need while helping us lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, one cup of cooked oatmeal contains 166 calories, 5.94 g of protein, 4.00 g of dietary fiber, and 3.56 g of fat. Oatmeal is packed with soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the “bad” cholesterol.
Steel cut oats are one type of oatmeal that is also great to cook the night before! Usually best if cooked overnight in a crockpot!
