This is my first day at being 100% vegan, and what better way to start it out than with some yummy oatmeal?
My daughter’s pediatrician recommended I watch Sugar the Bitter Truth on YouTube several months ago. We all know sugar in large quantities is bad, but sugar in small amounts is not the best either. And for anyone who knows me on a personal level can tell you I have a HUGE sweet tooth! It can be so bad, that when there are “blackies” (my family’s recipe for triple chocolate brownies, so chocolatey you can’t just call them brownies) I will literally get mean if you try to take away my 2nd…or 3rd…or, okay, I’m just addicted to sugar.
I have never been over weight, and have usually always had a “nice” figure, but I have this cushy layer of sugah-fat that likes to cover my body. So what better way to start being (mostly) sugar-free than to kick it off with my vegan diet? Make a complete life style change for the better, to teach my child and hopefully future children.
Here we go.
Sugar-Free Cinnamon Breakfast Oats:
serves: 2 (or one big serving, if you don’t want to share)
Ingredients: 1 banana, 3/4 cup raw quick oats, 1 1/4 cups water, 1/16 tsp + more to sprinkle on top of cinnamon.
*This step not pictured, since it’s boring. Pour water in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, add quick oats and cook until tender*
In your serving bowl, mash up 1 whole banana with a fork (you can add up to 1/2 a banana more if you wish it to be sweeter)
Add your cinnamon and mix it together.
Stir in your oats and enjoy! Super easy and yummy!
You could also add in blueberries, or strawberries, your favorite nuts, coconut flakes, or even some chocolate chips if you want to make it a bit fun!
Make it your own sugar free breakfast! Let me know how you like it =)
