OLD FASHIONED OATMEAL
2/3 cup whole oats
1 cup almond milk
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
Raw honey or pure maple syrup
1 tbsp. ground flax and or chia
Fresh berries for serving
Ditch the packaged oatmeal, it’s loaded with sugar, too refined and can spike your blood sugar. Making your own oats takes only minutes and it makes a healthy breakfast. You can soak your oats the night before to make cooking time shorter in the morning. Oats are full of soluble fiber and will keep you full longer as well they are great for regulating blood sugar levels.
Place the oats and almond milk in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Continue to cook over low heat for 6 – 7 minutes or until oats are tender. Add in cinnamon, sea salt and add in extra almond milk to thin, depending on how you like it. Place the oats in a bowl and top with a drizzle of raw honey or maple syrup, ground flax and fresh berries.
2 handfuls of organic greens
¼ Avocado, diced
¼ cup cucumber, sliced
¼ cup Peppers, diced
1 green onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated
Top with chicken, canned tuna or salmon

Try: Add in sprouts, grated beets, lightly steamed broccoli, pumpkin seeds, sprinkle on ground flax.
