Oats Breakfast Recipes

During my school days, My Ranks will be on Top during the first quarter of the academic year. and it gradually dips further on the next quarters. Iam sure many of you would have same experience( I cannot be the only one). I think there is more thrive, when things start & then, when the time goes by, the throttle comes down and the thrive disappear! Now the same High Thrive in Morning - Slow Throttle in Afternoon - Disappearance of Thrive in the Evenings Syndrome happens to me on daily basis. Like I Think I should eat Healthy Food in the morning, then in afternoon i manage to cook just to fill tummy and in the evenings / Nights I totally go for Unhealthy stuffs like Fried Gobi Manchurian, Heavy Sugar thrown Sweets. This continues as my daily business. Let me Hope for Best, that i should eat at least 2 healthier Meals a Day.

Coming to the Oats Breakfast Recipe's, I discovered two Best and Healthy ways to eat Oats without Guilt.
Oats is a type of Cereal, that helps in reducing the Cholesterol. Oats also get digested slowly, so you don't feel hungry soon on having Oats. The Best Part i like about Oats is, It gives Energy for me to work for the next 2 hours and its So Light  Food to Have. Find its Nutritional Values Here.

The First Oats Breakfast Recipe is - Oats with Moong Dal and Green Peas

Oats with Moong Dal and Green Peas

I liked this much as every bite has Green Peas and the Moong Dal give a different taste along with the Oats.

Oats Murunga keerai Pappu
