Oatmeal is the go-to breakfast I suggest to many of my clients. Oats are an excellent source of manganese and molybdenum. They are also a very good source of phosphorus as well as a good source of copper, biotin, vitamin B1, magnesium, dietary fibre, chromium, zinc and protein.
And you can add a variety of fruits, nuts, seeds, and even vegetables to boost the nutrient content, flavour profile, and satiety.
Today I made this delicious oatmeal after my morning walk. It’s my morning fuel.
1/2 cup organic quick cooking oatmeal*
1 cup water
4 walnuts halves chopped
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 small kiwis, diced
1 small peach, diced
Add oatmeal and water to a microwave safe bowl and cook for 2 minutes.
Once cooked add the rest of the ingredients. Mix it up, and enjoy.
*Please note, cooked whole rolled oats or steel cut oats are more nutritious than using instant oats, so if you have the time, I encourage you to use those. Today, I just didn’t have the time. It is one of those busy Fridays. I’d much rather cut corners here by having instant oats, than stopping at the bakery down the street and picking up a danish or a muffin loaded with sugar, refined flour, and oil.
