- 1/4 c. Organic steel cut oatmeal
- 1 scoop of Hemp Seeds (2 Tablespoons)
- 2 T. Ground flax seed
- 2 T. Chia Seeds
- Handful of raw nuts and/or seeds (walnuts, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds)
- Cinnamon (to taste)
Fully cover with very hot (nearly boiling) water – about 3/4 cup.. Let sit for 3-5 minutes. (Or you can also stir & stick in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. If you do this, I recommend cooking the oatmeal by itself & then stirring in the rest of the ingredients afterward.)
Add some fresh fruit or nut milk if you like:
- Organic fresh or frozen berries (small handful)
- Dried Goji Berries (2 T.)
- Soy milk or nut milk, if you like creamy
Oatmeal is a great base. Change it up with:
- Nut butters
- Other fruits: bananas, mangos, etc.
- Avocado & Salsa
Other Breakfast Ideas
- Any kind of rice/beans/veggie combo, add some avocado for healthy fats. Salsa is great, too. Or a bit of seasoning.
- Stir-fry some black or pinto beans, sweet potatoes, onion & bell peppers. Use a small bit of coconut oil to stir fry. (If you cook the sweet potatoes in advance, this meal cooks in just a couple minutes. Or, just cut the potatoes really small & they will cook along with the onion/bell peppers).
- Want something more portable or more filling? Put all of this and some avocado into an Ezekiel Brand Tortilla & make a healthy breakfast burrito.
- Ezekiel Brand Cereals w/nut milk & fruit
- If you’re big on toast or bagels, try swapping with an Ezekiel brand bread or Ezekiel English muffin.
- If you’re big on eggs, scramble an egg with sweet potato and/or beans & a piece of Ezekiel toast with a little nut butter or avocado on it.
- Leftover dinner is great, too (as long as it was a healthy dinner w/complex carbs, proteins & healthy fats)
Why we love Ezekiel Brand Breads/Tortillas
Remember, we want complex carbs that take longer to digest. This brand is sprouted grains & does not have flour (or added sugar) so they do much better in our body than typical breads you find in the grocery store. You can find Ezekiel brand here locally in Trader Joe’s, Jimbo’s, Sprouts & Ralphs (check frozen or refrigerated sections). They tend to go bad quickly, so keep in the freezer, if you aren’t using often.
