Oats is my new best friend because I have been rescued from many days of lazy and unhealthy takeouts.
For some reason, I have been feeling more tired than I’m working. You know how you feel so tired and you somehow know you have not done enough to feel that tired.
That’s how I am now. All I want to do when I get home from work is just fall on my bed and sleep. But I have to eat.
And I know I can’t order takeouts, no, that’s no longer an option for me. But I have oats.
It is so easy to whip up a plate or batch of oatmeal recipes within minutes. So no matter how tired or unmotivated you might feel, oats will come to the rescue.
And because I hate boring menus, it even makes life more fun that there are numerous tastes and flavors to it. You will surely find a number of favorite easy recipes.
Good thing is, it’s healthy. So one stone for two birds, problem solved.
If you like oranges, this recipe will capture your heart. But if you would rather not have oranges, then water or milk will do just fine. Just make sure if you are using orange juice, it’s fresh and natural.
