IntroductionOats and bran with assorted dried fruits and nuts Oats and bran with assorted dried fruits and nuts
0.25 cup Quaker Oats Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
0.2 cup Oat Bran (1tablespoon)
0.25 cup Archer Farms Raw Mixed Nuts, unsalted
13 gram(s) Bob's Red Mill - Chia seeds (1Tbsp)
1 tbsp Blueberries, dried
0.2 cup Dried Cherries (1 tablespoon)
.5 serving The Ultimate Meal, dry mix (by -KELLYKAT-) (1 Tablespoon)
1 cup water (more or less, depending on your texture preferences)
For this recipe, I used nutrition information already available on Spark, so the details may vary, but this is the basic idea. The oats are a heart-healthy base. The nuts/seeds and fruits can be adjusted for personal preference. Go for unsweetened and organic when you can. I often use goji berries, wild blueberries, gooseberries and cranberries. I use Ultimate Meal by Samuel Gerard, but any whole foods, high-nutrition meal replacement (with spirulina) will do. I don't use a whole serving, just a "boost".
Looks strange with the green Ultimate Meal powder, and the texture takes some getting used to, but this is a crazy healthy raw breakfast that keeps me full until lunch. I periodically switch up the fruits so it isn't always the same. You can also add yogurt, kefir or a nut milk for creamy deliciousness.
For me, the beauty of these is that they can be assembled ahead -- I'm not a good thinker in the morning, and I inevitably need breakfast on the run. To prep, I line up about 10 3-cup containers, measure all the ingredients into all the containers, put on the lids and stack them in a cabinet. When I take out one of the fridge in the morning for breakfast, I also take out a new container (I premeasure the green mix into little containers I keep in the 3-cup containers, so this forces me to get out a new one), add about 1 cup water to the dried ingredients, then that one goes in the fridge for the next day. If it's too thick, just add more water; too soupy, add a little more meal powder and add less water next time.
