Power Packed Breakfast

Breakfast is an important meal, in fact some research claims that it is the most important meal of the day. I love breakfast, but I know that some people are not a fan (and I find those people crazy! haha). Today I am going to show you how breakfast can be key in getting a jump start on meeting your daily nutrient requirements with my Power Packed Breakfast Oatmeal!

Typic

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Oatmeal: Oatmeal is a whole grain. This serving provides you with a good source of soluble fiber, that may help reduce the risk of heart disease

1 1/2 Cups Water: Water in cereal helps to meet our daily fluid requirements.

1 tsp Chia Seeds: Provides you with fiber, protein, and omega-3’s. Research shows that omega-3s can improve heart health and lower triglycerides.

1 tbsp Vanilla Protein Powder: Protein helps to build lean muscle mass and restore essential amino acids.

1 tbsp Raw Sliced Almonds: Again a great source of protein and dietary fiber

1 tbsp Dried Cranberries: Contains antioxidants that help protect against free radicals (*free radicals=unstable molecules that can cause damage to cells)

1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips: Another source of antioxidants

Dash of Cinnamon: May help lower blood sugar and cholesterol.

Directions:

Mix the oatmeal and water in a microwaveable safe bowl.

Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

Stir in remaining ingredients.

Eat and enjoy!

What is your favorite power packed meal?
