Peops often tell me they don’t have time to eat a healthy, nutrient-dense breakfast. Which is why so many busy peops will skip breakfast altogether, or grab something that chock full of crap…Like a “healthy” candy bar with with added calories from protein (aka the protein bar). You have no excuse not to eat a tasty, low-calorie, heart-healthy breakfast packed with high energy yielding nutrition! This awesome breakfast takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and you can even slap it into a take-out cup and eat it on the road with a plastic spoon, like moi (The Asset Queen) does!
Bethy’s Awesome (less than) 5-Minute Breakfast To Go
Here’s all you need:
½ cup oatmeal — the plain old-fashioned kind, not the kind in flavored sugar-laden packets!
1 cup water (replace with low-fat or skim milk if you would like a little more protein with your breakfast).
1 teaspoon REAL almond butter (the kind with no other ingredients except almonds — ie no added sugar or chemicals) And yes of course you can substitute cashew or peanut butter.)
1 cup of mixed fresh or frozen fruit. I keep those ginormous bags of berries in the freezer and microwave them for a few minutes and they become a delicious warm topping! The only ingredients in those bags are the BERRIES. No added sugar. Berries are amazing because they are rich in antioxidants which fight cancer, inflammation and a plethora of diseases. I also added 1/2 apple and 1/2 banana. A variety of multi-colored fruits (and of course veggies, but maybe not in this bowl :)) equals a HUGE variety of much needed vitamins and mineral that you cannot get from those man-made miracle bars…OY!
You can microwave the oatmeal and water and then add your ingredients, or cooking on the stove top also takes less than 5 minutes. And you can make enough for your hubby and brood of 12 kiddies all at once!
The whole serving cost less than $1.50, has less than 350 calories and less than a ¼ of the calories come from good fat and there is no added sugar!
This quick and yummy breakfast is packed with SO much nutrition that you’ll have more energy than you know what to do with it.
Plus it’s so high in fiber that you’ll be full for hours — and yesterday’s “junk” will fly right out of your trunk LOL!
You can’t say any of the above about that empty calorie bagel with cream cheese that has twice the calories, 3 times the (not so good) fat, and offers virtually NO nutritional value.
Oh, and you can tell that annoying buddy of yours, the one that keeps trying to sell you the latest and greatest multi-level marketing miracle potion, to take a hike because for a fraction of the cost you can eat real food (aka G-d’s food) with less than five ingredients that are all recognizable. Stick with me and I will offer you FREE quick and easy ways to Move Your (fine young) assets and eat less (crap) without ever having to invest in the latest and greatest mulit-level marketing miracle potion, lotion, or pill again!
