Simple Pumpkin Oatmeal With Apple and Pecans

Simple Recipe for Pumpkin Oatmeal with Pecans and Apple

Today I have a screen test planned. Before I hit the road to show off my acting skills, I will go for a workout. Chin-ups, planks, box jumps … the real deal!

For enough energy to workout and deliver a hell of a screen test, I had yesterday’s pumpkin pecan oatmeal with apple for breakfast. A plain simple breakfast porridge, but utterly good!

By the way: why do many dishes taste even better the day after (or two days after, like this cute girl commented on my Strawberry Coconut Cake)? Anyhow, this breakfast was a whole lot of healthy stuff in one meal!

 

Simple Pumpkin Oatmeal With Pecan

 

Let’s see: we have pecans, which contain a.o. vitamin A (related to treating acne and prevention of premature skin aging) and healthy fatty acids. Pumpkin, apples and oats contains lots of fiber (which a.o. stimulate bowel movement). Pumpkin furthermore contains beta-caroteen (may play a role in fighting cancer) and slow carbs. These carbs, which are also present in oats, provide you with energy without resulting in a blood sugar spike. 

Oats are naturally gluten free, but make sure you buy oats from a brand that have no chance of being gluten contaminated (e.g. from the brand Bob’s Red Mill; these steel cut oats – the ones I use – are definitely gluten free).

 

Here’s the recipe for 2 portions of Pumpkin Oatmeal with Pecans and Apple:

  1. Hoi! Love your blog 🙂 Even een korte vraag: tot op heden gebruik ik alleen maar ‘havermout’ van quaker. Wel de havermout zonder toevoegingen natuurlijk, waar op staat: 100% havermout. Uit o.a. dit recept begrijp ik dat jij de ‘steel cut oats’ gebruikt; de Nederlandse variant daarvan zijn de havervlokken denk ik? Die je een stuk langer moet koken dan de havermout die ik tot nu toe gebruik?
