This is an excellent warming and hearty breakfast or post-workout meal for the Fall or Winter.
Save yourself time and clean-up in the morning by cooking 2 eggs or 1/4 cup of egg whites into the oatmeal. It may sound weird, but it makes the oatmeal thicker and creamier. The protein addition helps keeps you satiated all morning long. Vegans may opt to add a scoop of protein powder instead of eggs.
½ cup oatmeal (steel cut or rolled oats)
3/4 cup water
1 tsp grated ginger and turmeric
¼ tsp organic vanilla extract
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground turmeric
¼ tsp cardamom
1 TBSP ground flaxseeds
2 organic cage-free eggs or 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
Add turmeric, ginger, and water to a small pot. Heat water until it comes to a boil. Add in oats. Let it cook for about 2 minutes. Add in eggs and continue to cook and stir for another 2-3 minutes. Add more water if necessary. Turn down the heat to medium/low. Add in flaxseeds and spices.
Add Toppings: Top with your choice of nuts or seeds, goji berries, bee pollen or the like.
