This is a great breakfast, especially during the week when you’re rushing out the door. You can make a big batch of oats and then heat them up throughout the week. Oats are an excellent source of fibre and protein, both of which will keep you full and energetic.
I top this power bowl with antioxidant rich blueberries, we buy frozen organic wild blueberries and then defrost them for 30 seconds in the microwave. I also top this breakfast bowl with hemp Hearts which are also high in protein and an incredible source of lots of vitamins and minerals. I chop a tablespoon each of raw walnuts and raw almonds which is also a protein source and they are great for heart health and brain health. Lastly, I sprinkle cinnamon which is anti-inflammatory.
1/2 Cup Steel Cut Oats, cooked
1 TBSP Raw Walnuts, chopped
1 TBSP Raw Almonds, chopped
1/4 Cup Blueberries
1 TSP Hemp Hearts
Place you cooked oatmeal in a bowl, top with the other ingredients, add or subtract anything you want.
Some of my favourite toppings are: pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, berries, banana, cacao nibs, and almond milk.
Top it all off with cinnamon. If you feel the need for some extra sweetness, add about a teaspoon or so of maple syrup.
