Here at home we go in waves of having really awesome, healthy and hearty breakfasts and then falling off that wagon and proceeding to have way too many bagels and coffee at our favorite cafes in town.
Both have their place in our lives and hearts, but I know I feel better when we have more hearty breakfasts and fewer bagels, keeping mornings at the cafe for a once a week special treat.
The latest great breakfast we have been enjoying (and that has been keeping us ON the wagon!) is oatmeal with a generous serving of nutritional yeast, butter and salt. I had never been introduced to savory oats until a few months ago. It has changed my relationship with oatmeal. I prefer savory breakfasts so and classic oats with cinnamon, raisins etc doesn’t do it for me on a daily basis.
Making oats this way is so easy. Boil the water and cook the oats how you like them. I like mine on the slightly thin side. Add 1-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast and a pinch of sea salt. If you are not familiar with nutritional yeast, get to know it. It is high in B vitamins, a complete protein and has a delicious nutty, cheesy flavor too!
I serve a nice bowl of oats, with some Bengal Spice tea and milk, and some local mandarins and call it good.
