All day long I get inspired by learning from Plant Based doctors who teach us how to be super healthy. The idea for this power breakfast came from 3 of my favorite doctors. Dr. Klaper says it’s not necessary to eat breakfast. You can wait until lunch, which is actually good for us. But, if you’re hungry in the morning, eat a lot of fruit and some oatmeal. Dr. Furhman says to add a mixture of ground chia, hemp and ground flaxseed to your meals for omega-3s. Dr. Greger says if you add 1 tsp.,or more cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves to your oatmeal, the antioxidant level increases over 2000%. These healthy recommendations are how Garden of Eydie power breakfast was born. It’s so delicious and keeps you satisfied for many hours.
- ½ cup rolled or sprouted oats (not quick cooking), or whole grain of your choice
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Pinch ground clove
- 1 tsp. ground flaxseed
- 1 tsp. ground chia seed
- 1 tsp. hemp seed hearts
- 2-3 cups fruit (berries, kiwi, banana slices, melon, or your choice)
- Cook your grain in water, according to directions. I measure ½ cup of steel cut or rolled oats in a 4-cup glass measuring, cover it with about ½” of water and microwave on high for 2 minutes–so fast and works perfectly. Add the cinnamon, clove and seeds. Stir to combine and place in a bowl.
- Prep your fruit as you like and make it pretty!
Delight in this healthy powerful breakfast, and you’ll start your day off with tons of energy to last you all day long.
