My Favorite Breakfast

Thanks to my friend, AS, I’ve been talking a lot recently about what I eat for breakfast and what I do with chia seeds J. A year ago I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Esselstyn and he shared with me his favorite breakfast. I didn’t believe him at first that it could possible be good, because oats are made for cooked oatmeal!!.... but I trusted him and tried it. I was hooked!!! Now, our kids love it too and repeatedly ask for “Dr. Esselstyn’s cereal”. I could eat this cereal everyday of my life!!

There are many variations! Enjoy adding nuts, granola, other frozen fruits, or even other seeds. You can also adjust the measurements. Sometimes I add double the berries, but I find the frozen aspect is what makes this so delicious!

Here is the version I love best:

½ cup whole rolled uncooked oats
½ tbs of ground flax seeds
½ tbs of chia seeds
½ cup frozen blueberries
(sometimes frozen raspberries too)
1 cup non-dairy milk

Add to a bowl in that order and then mix and gobble it up! The milk turns blue, which is always fun for our kids!!
