Staying Hydrated With Oats.
With the colder weather it may be time to switch your breakfast to Oatmeal.
Not only will it be nice and warming in the colder months that will follow but statistically we drink less water in winter. Now you’re probably thinking, okay… I thought I was reading about oats not staying hydrated. Well, you’re reading about both. Now let me explain why that would have anything to do with having oats in the morning.
Not only is it a hearty, filling and super simple meal to make, oatmeal is also very hydrating. When oats are cooking they expand and absorb the water they’re being paired with. Which means, when digested, you are also taking in the water too.
I get it, cooking hot breakfasts every morning can be tough. If you are lacking time to cook your oats in the morning, try overnight oats instead. Soaked and chilled overnight, overnight oats pack all the benefits of hot oatmeal with no heat and less prep time. As an added boost, sprinkle chia seeds in your overnight oats which soak up 10 times their weight in extra liquid and keep you full all morning.
Obviously all breakfasts are best when they are balanced- so finding a way to bring up the proteins and fats in the meal will do wonders for your performance and body composition goals. There are plenty of protein oat ideas out there to find that balanced meal.
Now I’m not saying if you have oats you don’t have to drink any water- because that is far from it- However, if you’re like me and struggle with water intake at the best of time… maybe this in the morning will give you a little bit of a head start.
