It doesn’t have to. I once had a client tell me that he “didn’t have time for breakfast”, and that all he ever eats in the morning before work is a piece of toast with peanut butter. Um, hello, that’s breakfast! It doesn’t have to be a gourmet meal, or even a meal at all, as long as it’s something that will “break the fast”. A piece of toast and peanut butter is just fine. But, if you have the extra time, why not get creative with your breakfast?!
I’ve tried many different oatmeal combinations in my time. I love oatmeal, but lately I’ve been doing my Greek yogurt, granola, and blueberry combination, and leaving the oatmeal creations for Nick. Here are some of my new and old favorite oatmeal creations (both for Nick and myself)….
|Oatmeal, unsweetened almond milk, dark chocolate peanut butter, bananas, dry-roasted almonds|
|Oatmeal, pumpkin butter, and apples (I was very jealous as Nick ate this…..it’s loaded with FODMAPs!)|
|One of my old favorite combinations (as in, I was addicted to this for two years…..); oatmeal, pumpkin puree, and peanut butter|
|Another addiction I used to have; Oatmeal, flavored Greek yogurt, almond butter, and cooked sweet potato. Yes, it’s true, I used to eat this all the time. It is fantastic. I swear.|
