Simple healthy breakfast: Oatmeal

This is what I eat most days for breakfast: oats (made with water) with blueberries, and a little stevia on top. It’s simple, nutritious, and I like it.

My theory is that breakfast is the easiest meal to make healthy. This is because most days I wake up at my own home, so there’s none of that on-the-run stress that might occur later in the day (and send me running to a vending machine or fast food joint). Typical breakfasts are also generally cheap and easy, like porridge.

Some of my favourite toppings for my oats (which I like pretty dry) include:

  • Blueberries or strawberries with stevia
  • Grated carrots, cinnamon and maple syrup (think carrot cake taste)
  • Peanut butter
  • Coconut flakes or cream
  • Yoghurt
  • Peaches
  • Ginger and stevia
  • Cocoa powder and stevia (mixed in while cooking for a chocolate taste)
  • Raisins
  • Chopped nuts and chocolate drops
  • Sugarfree jam
  • Walnuts and caramel (for decadent days)
  • Nutella and strawberries
