Boot Camp Challenge Healthy Breakfast Idea

Oatmeal is a simple, easy and affordable clean breakfast.  Don't say boring yet, because the possibilities are endless.

All of the endless possibilities to keep breakfast interesting

In five easy steps you can have a hot, healthy breakfast for you and your family.  I recommend organic oats.  They are about $1.79 at Whole Foods or Hyvee in the bulk bins.  Any non-dairy milk, almond, coconut or rice milk, will do.  I always put flaxseed or chia seeds on mine for extra omega 3 and protein.  I use a little bit of brown sugar, but you could use stevia or honey or agave nectar. 

If your mornings are crazy, like almost everyone's are, you could even set out five baggies and put the dry ingredients in each baggie for five-breakfasts or more as needed.  Eat at home or take to the office and add hot water there.  It's also a great way to to get some extra fiber and fruit in your kids diets. 

Step 1

1/4 cup of organic oats

Step 2

Add water to just cover

Step 3

Microwave for 2 minutes.  Then let rest for 1 minute.

Step 4

Add 2 Tbsp of flaxseed.  1 Tbsp of brown sugar.  1/4 cup of almond milk.  Stir

Step 5

Top with dried fruit and nuts or berries. 

Super easy, inexpensive, very clean and filling!
