Breakfast: It’s the most important meal of the day. We’ve all heard that and, at some level, we understand that eating a good breakfast is good for us. We also all know that, MS or no MS, we don’t always do that which is good for us…
Each month we take one of our posts here atLife With MSand chat about food. This month, I have a special recipe from my friend . Heather and I have been part of a team teaching nutrition, sanitation, menu planning/shopping and cooking to home health aides these past few months.
Home Health Aides are trained assistants that help (in this case, older) people stay at home and live more independent lives, even if they need help with most of their daily routine. It is not, of course, lost on me that I know of several people living with multiple sclerosis who rely upon such aides as well.
Heather also spoke to my “Poker Night” guys this month. She gave us a pantry list which I’ll be sharing in these pages in the coming months.
For this month’s Recipe for Success I offer to you Heather’s “Apple Pie Oats”. The best part about this recipe (other than how great it tastes) is that you make it on say, Sunday. It keeps in the fridge for the week and can be reheated in the microwave with a little milk (soy or bovine) for a hot and satisfying breakfast every morning with no work, whatsoever!
Apple Pie Oats
2 cups 2% milk
2 tbsp Real maple syrup
1 tsp Ground cinnamon
1 cup steel cut oats (rinsed and drained)
1 cup apple cider
Optional: 1/4 cup chopped dried apples
Heat milk in sauce pan until just boiling.
Add oats, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Reduce to simmer.
Continue to stir occasionally so oats don't stick to the bottom of the pan. When the oats have absorbed half of the liquid (about ten minutes). Add the apple cider. Continue to stir until all liquid is absorbed and oats have softened to desired consistency.
You may add chopped dried apple.
Store leftovers in an air-tight container in fridge.
To reuse, take desired amount of oats, add milk or apple cider and microwave until hot.
Now, there is no reason not to have a hot breakfast nearly every day.
Thank you Heather for allowing me to reprint your recipe!
Wishing you and your family the best of health.
