Whole Hearted: Oatmeal, A Love Story

I am a creature of habit, especially when it comes to my eating habits. I eat oatmeal every day for breakfast.

It’s the perfect solution for a high protein, filling, delicious morning nosh that keeps me satiated until lunch.

 

I love how creative one can get when adding the toppings, or “decorating the bowl” so to speak. For me, making my oatmeal bowls in the morning is a creative outlet- it is my art form.

 

Oatmeal has been gaining more traction and attention recently, but it still suffers from the bad rap of being “that plain, boring food” that is suitable for elderly people only. Contrary to this belief, I believe oatmeal is just a fiber and antioxidant filled, heart healthy, energy boosting blank canvas that can be painted any way you choose! And, it’s gluten free for all of our gluten intolerant peeps!

 

I always add chia seeds when I make my oatmeal base, because of how plump and gooey they get when mixed with the oats. It also helps make the oats themselves creamier. Some of the benefits of chia seeds is that they are extremely high in protein, so you get a little protein boost to your oats. Chia seeds do wonders for digestion and detox, and help fight heart disease and lower cholesterol.
