With a new baby and 2 busy daughters, I've been looking for fast ways to grab filling meals for me. Many times, I'm rushing in between feedings, poopy diapers, teaching my yoga class, cleaning, writing blog posts, drop-off, and pick-up... And I forget to eat real meals, not just an apple, or a piece of almond butter toast. Here is my new favorite fast breakfast, it's oatmeal... Go figure. Not packaged oatmeal, yes, those are fast, and can be healthy. Mine has less sugar, and is made with real fruit- fresh fruit!! It's also, very filling!! It basically takes as much time as it takes to boil a cup of water. I put the tea pot on, and make breakfast for frick & frack, then dump my oats and chosen fruit in a bowl. Add water then a little agave syrup or raw sugar, maybe even a little cinnamon.
Here are the ingredients...
1/2 c Organic quick Oats
1 c boiling water
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp agave syrup or raw sugar (optional)
1/4 c chopped apple (or other fresh fruit, top pic has apples & blueberries)
Sprinkle of kosher salt
You can boil water and add it to ingredients, or cook oats & water in microwave, then add other ingredients. Let sit for 3 min, so all ingredients incorporate. Feel free to get creative here... Add nuts, fruits, etc.
Enjoy your BreakFAST!
