I’ve decided today is the day to show you guys my (almost) daily breakfast meal. I used to have scrambled eggs and veggies every day (and I still eat that occasionally), but the thought of my morning cookie perks me right up when I come downstairs with my early-morning-loving child. :)
This was inspired by my friend Lindsay, who found a recipe for a mock cookie dough created to help people with their addiction to the stuff. (haha) I was craving something sweet one day (but not looking for something super sweet), so I called her and asked for that recipe. I modified it a lot and I eat the combo below almost every day.
I use the word “cookie” jokingly because even though it tastes sweet to me, this “concoction”, as Lindsay calls it, is so healthy and nutrient-rich that it keeps me full for hours – seriously!
Here’s how I make it:
About a tablespoon of organic millet seed (for crunch, iron, protein, carbs):
About a tablespoon of flaxseed (omega-3s) and a few shakes of cinnamon (tons of health benefits – google it!):
About 1/2 a cup of oatmeal (fiber, carbs, and protein) and a large tablespoon of 100 % all-natural, *no sugar* peanut butter (protein and creaminess):
And a swizzle (?) of honey on top – for sweetness only. :) (I used to add a few chocolate chips but I weaned myself off of them.)
Add a glass of organic milk (yeah for no hormones) and you have my daily meal that makes me excited for the morning. :)
Is it low-carb? No.
Is it low-fat? No.
Did God make all the ingredients? Yes. :)
I am definitely not afraid of fats anymore after Somersizing and reading all my “clean” books, and I’m not afraid of carbs if they’re in their natural, unrefined state. I can eat this every morning for breakfast and still maintain my weight if I follow Level 2 Somersizing for the rest of the day.
Enjoy – maybe it will be your new favorite thing, too! ;)
