Organic Steel Cut Oats (quick cooking in the microwave)-the cheapest way is to buy the 24oz cylinder from Earth Fare. Whole Foods doesn’t carry quick cooking organic steel cut oats. We love these with organic chia seeds, a few walnuts, and frozen blueberries. The blueberries really cool down the hot oatmeal very fast! A bit of honey is a great way to sweeten it too!
Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Bread-I buy this from Whole Foods or Earth Fare because Trader Joe’s doesn’t keep theirs frozen…I think it tastes fresher when it’s been kept in the freezer. Toast a piece! I eat mine plain! David like a little butter. Almond butter is good as well!
Trader Joe’s Organic Corn Flakes…I try to avoid cereal because I know there are WAY healthier options. Problem is David is a HUGE cereal fan…and consequently, Wells loves it too. We try to switch it up and definitely don’t eat it every morning. When we do, we will eat this. David has switched to using half organic almond milk/half organic milk. If I eat cereal, I use all almond milk. The texture is a little different…but there is virtually O sugar!
Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola. I found this incredible treat when we were in Houston while David was going through treatment. Most granolas have A TON OF SUGAR! This one has much less than the others. A box of this lasts us a REALLY long time. We put a dash in with the organic corn flakes–it adds a special crunch and a delicious flavor. Easy to find in stores-EF, WF, TJ.
Vega protein smoothie. Sometimes if I work out in the morning I need something light and cold. David and I have both tried to like the Raw proteins…they are organic….but the texture is too grainy for us. We will mix this smoothie powder with organic almond milk, 1/4-1/2 frozen banana, and a few ice cubes. Delicious, filling, and provides 2 servings of veggies!
