Dr. Becky’s Oatmeal

This is the oatmeal recipe that I have every morning. I have crafted it over a few years :-)

It is simple to make in the microwave and I use frozen fruits to make my prep time very short. This has become such a staple in my life that I can tell if I missed a day of eating it. In fact, sometimes I will make it my lunch if I was unable to have it in the morning.

I hope you enjoy it and make it your own ‘go to’ breakfast. In the recipe below I do include a small handful of walnuts, but I rarely include these myself. I try to keep nut intake to a small handful a day to help control my weight and I find that I get my requirement of nuts or seeds from other Super Foods recipes I make throughout the day or I use them as a topping on my salad.

I do add the Hemp Seeds every morning. This is one ingredient that I have only found online or at my local farmer’s market. They are pricy; I pay $15.00 for a 12 ounce bag of Bob’s Red Mill Hulled Hemp Seed. But, this is one addition that noticeably improves my digestive health (Let’s just say that if you are constipated, then hemp seeds will help).

I checked on Amazon.com and they have the same brand Bob’s Red Mill Hulled Hemp Seed, 12-Ounce Bags (Pack of 4) that I use for about $11.00 a bag, but you have to buy four at a time.

Hemp seeds are also rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, which are good for lowering triglycerides in your blood and might even help with joint health and depression.
