Red White & Blue Breakfast


I’ve always loved fruit & oatmeal for breakfast, but recently I have been adding a new spin, which is full of protein and tastes amazing! It’s super easy to meal prep too! I make a batch on Sunday and prep 4 bowls for the week. 

Makes 1 Serving

  •  1/2 Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Water
  • Cinnamon 
  • Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 cup Plain Unsweetened Yogurt (I use dairy-free Kite Hill)
  • 1 cup Berries
  • Stevia 

To make the oatmeal, add oatmeal, water, cinnamon, and salt to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. 

Once cooled, add to a bowl, and layer on yogurt and fresh berries. Enjoy!

Healthy Eating: BetterOats

20120329-081848.jpg

As a vegan and total health nut, I’m always on the search for whole foods breakfast alternatives that are easy to travel with. I recently discovered BetterOats Pure and Simple. Packed with five whole grains and free of sugar and preservatives, it’s low-fat and low calorie. It is a good source of fiber and protein, making it a great pre-workout meal! Each pack of oatmeal doubles as a convenient measuring cup. I choose the “bare” flavor, and add in fresh berries, or bananas and coconut to switch up the flavor each day. Did I mention it’s organic? I’m hooked.
