Happy Monday! What are you eating for breakfast this morning?
Oatmeal is a popular breakfast amongst the RDs at the hospital. It’s nourishing, filling, and damn delicious. I’ve really been enjoying starting my work days with a hot bowl (aka Pyrex container) of oats. I’ll usually prepare a double or triple batch at home ahead of time so I can just grab and go and then reheat it when I get to my desk in the morning. I especially love it topped with peanut butter (surprise, surprise). The combination of complex carbs (hello, fiber), protein, and fat keeps me going for hours.
Because my co-workers often ask what I’m eating that smells so good, here are a few of my recent favorite recipes. I like to cook egg whites into my oatmeal, but if you’re vegan or just not into it, feel free to skip that step.
- Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal (great with chocolate peanut butter!)
- Zucchini Bread Oatmeal
- Chocolate Banana Oatmeal with Egg Whites
- Easy PB & J Oatmeal
- Apple Spice Oatmeal
What’s your favorite breakfast?
