WWVD for breakfast?
well although we are not as limited as most people might believe, vegan or no vegan oatmeal is a great way to start the day!
So this is something I tried this morning ( prepared over night) but absolutely loved!
Did you know that you don’t have to cook your oatmeal?
I put a portion of rolled oats into a tupperware and added a hand full of dried cranberries , some chia seed as well as some fresh blackberries.
( add whatever you like! … ** if you want banana wait til the morning to add it in ** : )
I then covered the mix with almond milk… you really want to put in a fair amount! make sure the almond milk covers everything!!
Leave it in the fridge over night
you have a tasty,healthy and wonderfully filling breakfast all ready for you in the morning . : )
The idea comes from an old swiss breakfast idea ; muesli which is typically made with yogurt, oats and berries. This recipe was invented in the 1900s before pasteurisation and refrigeration became commonly available . At this time the oats were also soaked overnight in water to ensure they would become soft enough to eat.
You can definitely do so in lu of a milk substitute ; with water or even juice to give a sweeter flavour!
You can definitely use a yogurt substitute… or the real deal if that’s part of your diet.
This is just an example of an easy and satisfying vegan breakfast option.
Stay tuned as I will be introducing more interesting breakfast suggestions : ) … after all It really is the most important meal of the day.
Not to get too hippy on yah , but i’d like to share with you an old proverb I learned from a wise yogi that helps to remember the importance.
” Have breakfastyourself; share lunch with your friend; and give dinner to your enemy.”
