Being vegetarian/vegan, how much protein can we possibly eat? We’re known more for eating whole grains and my personal favorite is oats. Every morning, I make a new type of oatmeal, playing around with what I add into it to make it taste delicious. This morning, I made a blueberry almond oatmeal for breakfast that was both filling and delicious with added flaxseed, making it rich in omega-3 acids.
Yields 1 Serving
Serving Size: 1 bowl
0.5 cup rolled oats
.5 cup water or almond milk (you can use your typical daily milk if not vegan)
50 raw blueberries washed
10 raw whole almonds (if you want, you can soak them overnight to make them softer)
1 tbsp flaxseed ground
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1. Place the rolled oats into a bowl and pour in the liquid of your choice (milk or water).
2. Spoon in your tbsp of flaxseed and microwave the oats for 1-2 minutes until they are completely cooked.
3. The bowl will be hot so be careful when you take it out of the microwave. Sprinkle the oatmeal with your blueberries and almonds, and top everything off with cinnamon powder.
