The Forever Breakfast

Sometimes breakfast can be tricky. For me, cereal can leave me feeling hungry by 10am. I need something more filling, but still just as easy to make as cereal.

Enter oatmeal! I have been eating oatmeal every day for breakfast for the past 6 months. I started with the instant oatmeal in individual packets, but organic, steel cut oatmeal in the big containers is just more cost efficient. Plain oatmeal is lacking in the flavor department so here is my basic recipe for oatmeal in the morning:

Disclaimer: These measurements are mostly done by eyeballing it and not with a measuring cup. Measuring cups are not in my vocabulary at 5:00am in the morning.

1/2 cup Oatmeal

1/4 cup Milk

Spoonful of Almond Butter


Some sort of a berry

Mix the oatmeal and milk together.

Heat for 1 minute.

Stir in Almond butter and honey. Almond butter will melt into the oatmeal.

Add berries on top.

You're done! I like to cook mine in a coffee mug and then out the door I go with my oatmeal in hand. Delicious! And I'm not hungry until a proper lunch time!
