I’m sure you’ve eaten oats at least once in your life. If you haven’t maybe today can be the first!
Most days and most people don’t have much time in the morning to prepare a healthy filling breakfast. But there are many ways to prepare your breakfast in advance. This will save you time in the morning and keep you well nourished and fuelled for the day.
I like most of my meals quite simple, and this is something I would consider still quite simple because there is only a few steps in making it, and only whole ingredients that are actually good for you.
- 1 cup Oatmeal
- 1 1/4 cup Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk of your choice)
- 1 Tbs Chia Seeds
- 1 tsp Maca Powder (Mine is from The Superfood Grocer)
- 1 Tbs Sunflower Seeds
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 1 Tbs Coco Nectar (I get mine from The Superfood Grocer)
- Toppings of choice
Mix everything in a bowl or jar and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Top with desired toppings like fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, etc. You can leave it overnight and enjoy it in the morning with pretty much no prep time!
I personally topped mine with fresh mangoes and banana, some chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, homemade peanut butter made with my Vitamix, and some toasted coconut chips from Radical Organics. Work with what you have and what you can afford, you can easily swap out certain ingredients when needed.
There you go! An easy and deliciously nutritious way to start your day!
Hope you enjoy it!
