Today I want to share with you a recipe I created during my breakfast experiment – Superfood Apple Oatmeal.

As you’ve heard breakfast is the most important part of the day. It can create a day where you crave healthy foods or one when you are chasing wacky blood sugars.

When you start the day with a coffee and a donut and odds are by lunch you are wanting something salty that contains meat, like French fries and a burger. Maybe another coffee since lunch wasn’t exactly energizing.

The skill of slowing down and listening to your body’s cues is key to reaching and maintain a healthy weight, lasting energy and meal satisfaction. Instead of looking at food as math equation (calorie + calorie) my hope is that you begin to see it as way to nourish yourself from the inside out.

During my breakfast experiment I was surprised to find I did well on oatmeal.  In the past I’ve found after I ate oatmeal I was hungry within an hour. For those of you who are sensitive to eating only carbs in the morning, oatmeal alone might not be the best option.

However, I doctored this oatmeal so it contains 7.5 grams of protein and 12.5 of fiber which slows the rate of digestion so you get a slower release of sugar into the bloodstream.  Try out and report back.

Superfood Apple Oatmeal Recipe

  • Organic apple – diced (high in fiber)
  • 1 TB chai seeds (filled with omega 3s, protein and fiber)
  • ¾ c organic unsweetened almond milk (non-dairy alternative to milk)
  • ¼ c gluten free oats (using gluten free oats with eliminate gas/bloating/fatigue for those of you who are sensitive to gluten)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or more to taste (a sweet spice that helps regulate blood sugars)
  • Pinch of sea salt


Heat almond milk, apple, oats, and cinnamon in small sauce pan over medium/high heat covered until boiling (2-3 minutes). Uncover and reduce heat to medium and let simmer for another 3-5 minutes until apple are semi-soft. Remove from heat and add chai seeds and pinch of salt.

Make it your own: 1 TB walnuts or for extra sweetness a tad of organic maple syrup or honey.
