Simple But Delicious Breakfast Idea

By Andrew Gavigan


Breakfast is Hard!

I know that some of my clients find it difficult to prepare, or even take the time to eat a healthy breakfast. I do my best to encourage them, and even though I am not a nutritionist, I do my best to make some recommendations. Eating breakfast is often physiologically important to a healthy, fit lifestyle but more importantly, for most of my clients, it's an important milestone for developing healthy habits, learning to get control of their routine, and a great way to start the day already having had some successes.

One of my favorite thing to do for breakfast is tasty, healthy, and fairly well balanced: Instant Oatmeal with Peanut Butter and Honey.

The ingredients are simple:

1. Instant Oatmeal

2. Peanut Butter

3. Honey

the ironic delivery was intended! This meal will take up about :45 seconds of your time in the morning, and will supply a healthy dose of complex carbs, fats, and protein without boring your tastebuds.

I use Trader Joe's Unsweetened Instant Oatmeal (ingredients: Whole Grain Oats, Ground Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds, Quinoa, Amaranth), Kirkland Natural Peanut Butter from Costco, and some Local Honey from a small shop nearby. Use 1 Packet of oatmeal, mix with hot water to the consistency of your liking. Add 1 tablespoon of Peanut butter first then ad a 1/2 tablespoon of honey. Do it in this order because the honey wants to stick to the spoon longer. The hot water will help everything mix well into a nice "oatmeal"-like consistency.

Enjoy, start your day with a win, and don't forget to get some exercise.
