Ah, breakfast. Most important meal of the day. Ever feel like a monster in the morning? So hungry you could devour everything in your kitchen? In a matter of seconds? Get in me belly, you grumble!
I know I have those days. But even when it’s just a normal day and hunger isn’t off the charts, I like my breakfast to be easy because it’s best to eat within the first hour of waking.
Why is that, you ask?
Pretty simple. Because you haven’t eaten for about 10 hours, give or take. And your body needs fuel to take on the day.
While there are several components to this, there is no cooking required, so it’s just a matter of how quickly you can get it all into the bowl (but take your time getting it into your belly)!
Banana Raspberry Oatmeal
1/2 cup of organic quick oats
1 cup of organic almond milk
25 frozen organic raspberries
1/2 tbsp of chia seeds
1.5 tbsp of hemp seeds
1 tbsp of chopped walnuts
1 tsp of raw cacao nibs
liberal shakes of cinnamon*
1. Get a bowl.
2. Put everything in the bowl.
3. Mix it all up and mash up the bananas and the raspberries.
4. Eat slowly and chew.
5. Be grateful for every bite.
*There’s a post on the benefits of cinnamon coming your way soon!
Now, you can absolutely play with the proportions. Use 1/4 cup of oats, increase chia to 1 tbsp, increase walnuts, leave out the banana, etc. Make it tasty for you. But here are the nutrition facts as is. With a good dose of healthy fats, omegas, protein, carbs and calories, this puppy will take you right through the morning.
