Let's be real: you don't always have time to eat a pretty breakfast. We get it. But we love oatmeal bowls for that reason exactly. Using your favorite steel-cut oats (or instant organic oatmeal of your choice), combining it with nutrient-packed handfuls of your favorite nuts, fruit, seeds and honey and the result = FIBER RICH, NUTRIENT DENSE, and FILLING DELICIOUSNESS. The only time this meal requires is enough for you to heat up some water. It's filling, so you'll be full until noon after consuming this yumminess (which may even save you some cash money which would have been spent on other foods, and the craving for less healthy options). And now we will break down the health benefits of the bowl:
for every 1,000 calories you consume, you should aim to consume 14g of fiber with it. This makes the digestion process of what you're eating work smoothly. The average bowl of Oatmeal has 10-14g of fiber.
it HAS protein
It packs on average 6-7g of protein with it! That's a bonus you may not have expected.
it's the perfect base
It's easy to combine with other foods. Adding to your hot oatmeal these beautifying + energy-increasing foods create a breakfast with so much more to offer than a granola bar.
A list of our favorite add-ins below:
flax seed, chia, bee pollen, honey, maple syrup, walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds, dried berries, fresh berries, sliced banana, cinnamon, almond milk, almond butter
Get creative with it! This is the perfect food for our active clients. We recommend not eating this within 2 hours of a spin class, but eat UP after your morning class! Refuel and stay full.
Pictured above is my bowl this lovely Sunday morning after my 9am spin class. It's rolled oats, flax seed, crushed raw walnuts, almond milk, organic fresh blackberries (on sale at the co-op for 2.99! Get it girl.), organic honey drizzled, dried organic unsweetened cranberries. To say that I enjoyed this would be a drastic understatement. I LOVED every bite. This should fuel my sledding-filled Sunday. See you on the bike xo Alli
