4 simple ways to add Captain Oats into your life

In today’s blog post, I would like to share with you how I incorporate oatmeal in my daily life. I’ve been doing this all these while and now I have this great opportunity to collaborate with Captain Oats!

1. A bowl of healthy Oatmeal

Ingredients required

2 cups of Captain Oats (Quick Cook Oatmeal)
450ml of hot water
1 big banana 

I will whip up a huge bowl of oatmeal first thing in the morning so that by the time I’m done preparing, the oatmeal would have cooled down nicely. I will also add in a mixture of fruits, depending on what is available in the supermarket. As no sugar is added into my oatmeal, I will choose fruits that are naturally sweet. The fruit taste amazing when it’s nicely soaked in the bowl of oatmeal! Yummy……

    2. My meal replacement ON THE GO

Ingredients required

1 sachet of Captain Oats (Instant Oatmeal)
1 scoop of whey protein
500ml of low fat milk/soy milk (Optional)

On days when I have a line-up of meetings and just can’t find time to have a proper meal, a quick meal replacement shake will be absolutely necessary. This allows me to keep my tummy full, so that once the meetings have ended; I will not be stuffing my face into any food I see. I also realise that many of my clients in the gym tend to have a huge time gap between lunch and dinner. This will cause them to have a heavy dinner and eventually gaining weight rapidly. This meal replacement can also be consumed during your tea break so that a light dinner will be sufficient come evening time. Try it!


   3. Power Overnight Oat 

Ingredients required

2 cups of Captain Oats (Rolled Oats)
300ml of low fat milk
1 cup of low fat yogurt (optional)

Limaran and I love to prepare breakfast together every morning but there are some days where we have to leave home really early and a “grab and go” breakfast would be more appropriate. So on days like these, I will prepare ourselves one box of overnight oats each the night before. Many of you will be dead tired when you reach home after a day’s work, and may not want to spend a whole lot of time preparing breakfast for the next day. Preparation time for Overnight Oats take less than 3 minutes, all you have to do is to add the respective ingredients into a Tupperware container and in the fridge it goes! As breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day, I urge you to put in a bit more effort! =)

   4.   Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes

Ingredients required

1 cup of Captain Oats (Grinded to powder form)
4 egg white
2 egg yoke
1 big banana
2 table spoon of honey (optional)

On some weekends, Limaran and I will sleep in and take our mornings easy. This is the best time to enjoy longer breakfast together and I will usually prepare some healthy pancakes for breakfast. These pancakes contain no flour at all but it can still taste nice and fluffy. Preparation time is a bit longer for this, so do this for your loved ones only on days where you’re not in a rush =)

And there you have it, 4 simple yet effective ways to prepare healthy meals using Captain Oats oatmeal. Please share with me some interesting ways you prepare your oatmeal too!

Thanks for reading and stay healthy.
