Hello, this is Kumi.

There are a lot of food stands in Thailand, cheap and delicious so basically it’s not hard to find some foods at all, however about breakfast, it’s better to be able to eat something immediately at my place.
Now, my breakfast routine is oatmeal (If you are an American, it may be so ordinary. For Japanese, it’s not so familiar to us.)
It’s so easy, cheap and looks healthy. Let me introduce it.

How to eat (In my case)

I’d not eaten oatmeal in Japan at all, I got to know it in Philippines. I feel it’s like a Japanese rice porridge. I’m not familiar with a milk porridge so much, so I add just hot water and chicken seasoning. It’s not bad taste.
▼Always with seaweed, chicken seasoning and ginger powder.

With seaweed, it looks a bit strange… I know…
▼I have a cold constitution little, so I take ginger powder recently. Half is for oatmeal, half is for tea. (Then it become gingner tea.

▼Some people ma want to avoid chemical seasonings, but for me, it’s okay for now, because I can’t read any packages here in Thailand…

Aside from oatmeal, usually I eat 2 kinds of fruits and yogurt.Fruits are so cheap in the market near here, for example, papaya 1kg 20THB (about 0.6USD). So happy.

Good point of oatmeal

I think oatmeal has good points as below:
  1. Cheap price: For 400g, just 41THB (about 1.3USD), so one meal is just 4THB (0.13USD). So cheap! Other cereal is rather expensive.
  2. Easy for stocking and cooking: I can’t suggest it to dieter who try the diet without carbohydrates because it’s cereal, We can stock it in normal temperature. It’s dry so it’s light. It’s good we can eat it with just hot water. Actually, I’d like to eat brown rice also, but it’s a little difficult to cook, especially now I’m traveling.
  3. Good for health: I can’t suggest oatmeal to the dieter who is trying the diet without carbohydrates, however I believe it’s good for health and digestion.

オートミールの栄養

Wikipedia先生によると、

  穀物食品の中ではミネラル・タンパク質・食物繊維を最も豊かに含む

(エンバク – Wikipedia : http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%A8%E3%83%B3%E3%83%90%E3%82%AF

 オートミールは燕麦の糠(胚芽など)の部分が無精製で含まれる全粒穀物であるため、精白した穀類よりも食物繊維やビタミン、ミネラルが豊富である。食物繊維が食品100g中10g前後と、他の穀物や野菜と比べても非常に豊富に含まれる[5]。水溶性食物繊維、不溶性食物繊維ともに豊富である。オートミールを食べることによって血中コレステロール濃度が低くなるという研究結果が数多く報告されている[6][7][8]。エンバクの水溶性食物繊維の大部分はβグルカンである。エンバク由来のβグルカンについて血中コレステロール値上昇抑制作用、血糖値上昇抑制作用、血圧低下作用、排便促進作用、免疫機能調節作用などが欧米を中心に多数報告されている[9]。また、燕麦に含まれるβ1,3-グルカンは心臓病を発症するリスクを低くする。

 という事で、食物繊維・ミネラル・ビタミンに優れているみたいですね。

It’s good that I don’t have to think what should I eat every morning!

This set and soy milk (I buy it at a stand every morning) became my routine. So healthy… Different from Manila life…

お粥の屋台も近くにあって食べてみたいのですが、白米なのでオートミールの方が健康に良さそうだなーと思ってしまいまだ挑戦できていません。
