I love to start the day right with a powerhouse-of-goodness breakfast. A healthy nutritious combination of carbs, healthy fats, and protein to help me get through whatever the day might throw, and provide me energy to complete my various projects. The breakfast below is what I eat each and every day, using dairy-free, gluten-free ( as much as possible in this recipe), and organic fresh produce. There is a plethora of anti-oxidant goodness in each ingredient, which work hard to repair, and plump up skin cells to keep you beautiful, boost immunity, and help your metabolism to work efficiently. The coconut oil deserves a special mention, as this is amazing for soothing and nourishing skin, and I have noticed a huge difference since eating this every day.
So get your glow on each morning, and indulge in deliciousness!
1/2 Cup Oats ( I use Freedom Foods Free Oats which, while not entirely gluten-free, are free from other gluten-producing ingredients such as wheat, rye, and barley. You may be able to find a similar product if you are gluten-intolerant and can handle a small amount of gluten like me)
I cup almond milk ( or other dairy-free milk of your choice)
Blueberries, Raspberries, blackberries of your choice in whichever amount you wish
1 small nectarine or peach
1 Tablespoon organic virgin coconut oil
A few walnuts or other nuts, a couple of brazil nuts is my fave, chopped
Chia seeds, up to a tablespoon
A mix of Cinnamon, and All-Spice to sprinkle over
Combine oats and almond milk, and cook according to packet instructions. Mix in the coconut oil, top with chopped fruit and nuts, and sprinkle with both chia and combination spices.
