Healthy Cooking - FFF | My Breakfast Oatmeal!

Good morning there! Hi! Right now I should be working out, but for some reason I've been procrastinating it for 2 hours now, just looking up raw foods and superfood supplements and sports corsets. I got a bend rib cage, on my left side my doctor recommended it but dude they're so expensive dawg. I really need that/a job ヾ(@† ▽ †@)ノ 

To follow along with my procrastination atm, I was going to write this last night but then it was 3AM and I had only re-sized the pictures and uploaded them and my boyfriend wanted to sleep, didn't get that post done then (´∀`*) /stomachrumble.


I always start off my day with a morning workout followed by a bomb ass breakfast. My "Anyday-Oatmeal-Breakfast" basically it's extremely simple oatmeal. But, very healthy oatmeal! 

Let's start off with our ingredients;
  • 1 Banana 
  • Cinnamon (powder, please)
  • Water (If you don't like water you can sub with almond/soya/rice/etc milk, keep it healthy)
  • Açaí powder (this step is optional, but it's really good for you! #SuperFood)
  • Oats 

You take out your pot (this can also be done in the microwave with a big bowl but, do save yourself the risk of having to clean up your microwave if it goes wrong and drowns it) and a bowl, take you banana and mash it up to a nice smooth texture, or some chunks if you preferred this recipe is easily altered to your own preference, think of my recipe as mere guidelines ~ You should have a consistency like so;

Now take your oats, measured in tablespoons you will use 5 / 6 tablespoons of oats into your pot. I usually make it for both me and my boyfriend, so it goes to about 9-10 spoonfuls depending on how much you eat. But, 5 should be the golden number for you in this recipe, if not alter it yourself to 4 or 6.

You will want to add your "powders" first before adding the water, it's just because it's easier to handle and you won't freak out about it; it's too hot and you gotta stir it constantly so it doesn't burn etc, just a dash/ a teaspoon should be plenty.

Add about half a tablespoon of the Açaí powder (again this is optional).

Proceed to add your water, just enough water to cover your oats, should give it a nice porridge like consistency but of course if that's not your alley go ahead and use less or more! Quickly after adding water you would want to add the mashed banana mixture into the pot as well, and mix it well with the oats. It should give off a slightly purple color, due to the Açaí powder used which is pretty cool, if not it'll turn out like so shown on the picture below;

As you can tell, that barely took any time, I'll say over all 10 minutes to get that baby. The recipe is simple and oats are so amazingly versatile, it's like a healthy food fashion item that goes with everything, but no seriously you can use oats for almost everything. Now you can play with your toppings, all sorts of fruits and nuts! Don't worry about going overboard, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and getting a lot o fibers/minerals/vitamins etc into your body right off the bat is NOT a bad idea~ 

Here's some of my latest oatmeal creations;

Looks great, right?
