My Amazing Oatmeal

8860excited

Last week I was really sick which snowballed me into making some important lifestyle changes -more specifically in my diet.  Being sick not only caused me to lose my appetite almost completely, on top of that I wasn’t craving those sugary high caloric snacks I usually do at 10AM and 8PM everyday.

Last week, I completely avoided dairy, and I still do- well at least try to. (The usual fatty ones- ice cream, cheese, whip cream etc) It’s not that I won’t have it, it’s that I just don’t really buy it anymore because for me personally, I know it doesn’t serve my heath well.  It’s like that awkward relationship with a person you avoid- you don’t seek them out, but if you happen to run into them at a party, you make small talk and be nice- or in ice cream’s case- you indulge a little bit.

While I was sick, I made myself this amazing (and super nutritious) oatmeal and I would like to share it with you this morning.

Ingredients:
1/3 cup of quick oats
1 Tablespoon of ground flax seeds
1 1/2 Tablespoon of hemp seeds
Handful of golden raisins
Dash of cinnamon
Spoon of honey

Add 1/2 cup of milk (I used almond milk) and microwave for 1:15seconds.  Stir and enjoy!

    I’ve never tried hemp seeds. Sounds like a delicious breakfast! especially on a cold winter/spring morning. What I usually do with flaxseed is grind it in a coffee grinder and add it to oatmeal after it has been cooked. High temps will damage the oil in the flax and it won’t be as beneficial.
