Sponsored Video: Power Your Day with Healthy and Yummy Quaker Recipe

For years now, Quaker Oats has been part of our daily life. And who doesn't know Quaker anyway? Did you know that this amazing oat has been inspiring us with its power and goodness for over 130 years now? Yes 30 years of healthy breakfast for us! But Quaker Oats is not just a cereal breakfast...

Because The Fat Kid Inside (Erwan Heussaff) and Quaker are collaborating once more, following the success of the first Quaker Power Meals series.

There are 20 new five-minute episodes on Youtube that show Erwan Heussaf's active lifestyle that leads beyond the kitchen.

Just in time because everyone is after healthy living nowadays. The Power Meals by The Fat Kid Inside will give you fitness tips to better meal planning with Quaker.

Watch this video of Erwan Heusaff as he shows how to make Quaker Oats Champorado.

That Quaker Oat Champaroda is love right? The whole family will surely like it!

Here's the easy recipe of Quaker Oat Champorado (source).

1 1/4 Tbsps. Cocoa powder
7 Tbsps. Quaker Instant Oats
1/8 tsp. salt 3/4 cup water, boiled
1/4 cup low-fat milk, warm

1. In a medium bowl, mix cocoa powder, oats and salt together
2. Pour in water and milk and mix well. 
3. Continue stirring and cooking over a high flame until the porridge thickens.

Being a mom, I know how important it is to give my family not just yummy, but also healthy and powerful food everyday. However, being a working mom, time is always a constraint. Watching the Power Meal series help me with this time problem. Because each video will come up with a recipe, which incorporates the goodness of oats, developed with the busy everyday life of the Filipinos in mind.

We have our own version of Quaker Power Meals too. My husband loves making what he called healthy Arrozcaldo with, of course, Quaker Oats.

This healthy Arrozcaldo, just like Champorado, is perfect not just for breakfast but also during cold rainy season like now. I also like eating this when I am sick and Daddy is always happy to cook one for me. Sweet hubby right? 

Cooking healthy Arrozcaldo with Quaker Oats is easy. Here's Daddy's recipe (source):

250 grams chicken, cooked adobo style, flaked
2 cups rice, soaked in water for about 30 minutes then drained
1 cup Quaker Instant Oats
1 medium-sized onion, minced
thumb-size ginger, minced
3-4 clove garlic minced
1 tbsp turmeric powder
1/8 cup kasubha
¼ cup patis
1 tsp ground pepper
1 liter chicken stock
1 liter water

Toppings (optional):
toasted garlic
onion springs
fried tokwa

1. Sauté onion, garlic and ginger.
2. Add turmeric powder and kasubha, ground pepper and patis.
3. Drop rice and pour chicken stock.
4. Cover and wait for the rice to be cooked (just like cooking the usual plain rice).
5. Pour water and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
6. Add oatmeal and continue simmer until oatmeal cooks.
7. Place in a bowl then top with adobo flakes, toasted garlic, fried tokwa and spring onion.
Best serve with calamansi.
Optional: You can also add sliced hard boiled eggs as topping.

Daddy also bakes healthy oatmeal cookies for our son's baon.

Truly, Quaker Oats is not just a cereal breakfast because we can incorporate it to our delicious recipe to make it even yummier and healthy too.
