Oh hi, hello. Are you ready for another very specific post on how I like my oatmeal?
Not only is this NOT your basic bitch oatmeal…this is an oatmeal that will really GET THINGS MOVING. Let me tell ya, if you’re constipated, this is the oatmeal for you. This oatmeal has magic powers & it literally goes through your mouth & to your butthole VERY quickly. HA!
I’ve been eating this oatmeal 5 days a week for the last couple months & I’ve noticed a huge difference in my energy, skin & regularity ( wink wink, you know what I mean ). You should also note that it’s really fucking good. This is one of those breakfasts that you’ll keep going back to. I’m a big fan of sticking to the same recipe- I don’t like to mix it up too much. I have my staple foods that I like to stick to. When it comes to breakfast in the morning I don’t want to use my energy thinking of what to eat. We like it simple & to the point.
I used to do intermittent fasting & would break my fast with this oatmeal. Right now I am not intermittent fasting because I just have so much going on that I feel like I need something substantial in the morning.
Anyway, let’s get to the specifics of the oatmeal:
The first thing I do is boil some water on the stove. Right now I’m using this nonstick pan that was recommended to me by Jule The Bee. This pan was also approved by my friend Ingrid- they both raved about it, so I had to get it.
Ok, so then I take 1/4 cup of Nature Path Smart Bran cereal & add it to the hot water. Then I add 1/4 cup of GG Sprinkles & some sliced peaches. I also throw in some boysenberries & raspberries toward the end so they cook for a minute on top of the cereal ( it’s nice to have warm berries for this oatmeal ). BUT, it’s important to put the peaches in before the berries, because they’re harder & need more time to cook.
Then I drain out the mixture with a colander & transfer it to a bowl. It always looks like A LOT of cereal because it expands ( we want this, because this is what it does in your stomach to keep you feeling full for a long time ). I add in some Malk– this is an almond milk that I love with only 3 ingredients….almonds, Himalayan pink salt & water ( I like the unsweetened one in a blue container ). For a bit of sweetness ( & more fiber ) I add fiber syrup & to balance my blood sugar I add some Ceylon cinnamon. To keep it cute, I’ll also garnish with one peach slice. (( Sidenote: the fiber syrup I love is sold out everywhere, but this brown sugar is great to use too. ))
You should know I like to eat this with 1 egg or some egg whites. I like to have fiber & protein together in one meal because the fiber will help push the protein through your body, which is really good for you.
This breakfast is SO FILLING, you won’t believe how full you’ll feel. The GG Sprinkles have hardly any calories- they’re pure fiber which is why you go to the bathroom. I can promise you that you’ll feel completely satisfied with this breakfast- I can’t stop thinking about it, I can’t stop talking about it, & I can’t stop eating it every morning. I feel like screaming it from the rooftops.
Again, if you struggle with constipation, fiber is your BEST FRIEND. Add a ton of fiber to your diet immediately. 35-40 grams of fiber a day is what I aim for- there’s no such thing as too much fiber.
After eating this breakfast I feel like I’m ready to conquer the day.
Just for the record, here are some benefits of each ingredient:
♡ GG Sprinkles – low carb, high fiber, keeps you full & keeps you regular, lowers cholesterol, helps control blood sugar level.
♡ Peaches – rich in Vitamin A, C & important minerals like potassium, fluoride & iron.
♡ Berries – packed with antioxidants & fiber & help fight inflammation.
♡ Cinnamon – balances blood sugar level, fights inflammation, packed with antioxidants, improve insulin sensitivity.
♡ Almond milk – low calorie dairy milk alternative, low in sugar, high in Vitamin D, & a source of calcium.
Hope you guys loved my very specific, fiber-filled peaches & cream oatmeal. I can promise you this will get things moving. Pair it with some protein & it’ll keep things tight & right for summer.
I’m a creature of habit, but have fun with it. Try it with apple & cinnamon, pomegranate seeds or swap out the almond milk for Greek yogurt. TSC Hot tip: add some vanilla to the Greek yogurt.
