Looking to find ways not to be bored with the most important meal of the day?
Try adding a little spice to your breakfast. I love adding spices to my oatmeal including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and honestly any other warm spices like nutmeg or allspice. They not only add a heartiness to your oatmeal but they are anti-inflammatory and help stabilize your sugar levels. And then I like to meal prep for a couple of days so I will make a couple servings of it and keep it in the frig. I love cold oatmeal just as much as I love it hot! Having it the frig means it's ready to go and all I have to do is add my favorite toppings!
2 cups water
1 cup oats
1-2 tsp. of your favorite spices. Create your own blend using cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg.
In a pot, bring water to a boil. Add oats and spices to pot and mix everything well. Heat should be on a medium heat with water just slightly bubbling. Oatmeal is done when all of the water is completely into the oats -- ta da... Oatmeal!
Don't Forget the Toppings!
My oatmeal is not complete unless I have toppings on it. Here are some of the things I like to add to my oatmeal...
Berries, any kind
Chopped Nuts, Pecans, Almonds, Pistachios or Walnuts
Almond Milk, the good kind, just almonds and water...
And if you haven't tried dried mulberries, they are a must! So yummy.
