Breakfast and Dinner

April 18, 2014  |  food

Almost every day Brian asks me what we’re having for breakfast. Lucky for both of us, oatmeal is the easiest to make and it’s also his favorite.

Brian’s Favorite Oatmeal
1 C organic rolled oats
2 C water
1 t chia seeds
3 T raisins
1/2 t cinnamon
1 sliced banana
3 T walnuts
1 T maple syrup
1 t vanilla

Add oats and water to pot and cook over medium high heat. While you wait for it to start bubbling, add chia seeds and raisins. When it starts to boil and bubble, lower the heat and add the cinnamon. Once the water appears to be mostly absorbed add the walnuts through vanilla. It’s done when it reaches your desired consistency.

Dinner Last Night:
At some point in the afternoon B will ask me what’s for dinner. Last night it was Sprouted Mung Bean Soup. Since it’s easier to add heat than remove it, I cut the cayenne in half which turned out to be unnecessary. We ended up adding Sriracha and lemon (which was suggested in the recipe) – delicious.

  1. *Love* chia seeds – I put them on salads – hadn’t thought to put them on bfast – thnx!

  2. Thank goodness I don’t have to think about breakfast, too. John has a three cereal mix every morning with fresh fruit on it. I am one my own, which is great. Thinking about one meal a day is enough for me. Our lunch is an apple with almond butter, unless we are hiking then I do make sandwiches to go with the apple filled with almond butter:) You are great to take care of cooking breakfast, also:) The oatmeal sounds yummy!
