Much has been heard of the famous porridge, not only by blogs but also of celebrities known for their healthy lifestyle, including Elsa Pataky and her husband Thor (Chris Hemsworth).
The health benefits are many but what interested me most was that according to a study by Harvard University there is a relationship between the consumption of whole grains and increased life expectancy.
I leave you my version that it´s a bit more limited in terms of calories. If, like me, you got a few extra pounds, I recommend you to use this recipe.
As Anthony Bourdain says, you have to try it 3 times first ;)
1/4 cup oatmeal (which comes raw with big flakes)
3/4 cup water (you can use also milk)
1/2 tablespoon of honey
Stevia (or some natural sweetener)
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon of chia seeds
Blueberries (you can also use fruit, homemade jam, nuts)
Combine oats, water and stevia in a container. Bring to medium heat and stir until the porridge becomes soft and creamy.
Remove from heat and add the egg whites, stirring vigorously with a fork.
Once again mix well and cook 1 more minute.
Remove from heat and put in a bowl.
Add cranberries and honey above. Bathe with chia seeds.
