All you breakfast-skippers, raise your hand!
Now put your other hand out in front of you…
…and slap it.
Shame on you.
Cliche or not, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Before heading out the door each morning, you dictate whether you’re going to have a calm day full of focus or an emotional day that eventually succumbs to the hallway vending machine.
A simple nosh of cottage cheese, a handful of nuts and a piece of fruit can have you powering through the morning with mental clarity, boundless energy and best of all (in my books, anyway) fat burning!
If you have the time to run through a fast food drive-thru (and the talent to dangerously drive while eating), than you, my friend, have the time and talent to make Tim’s Oats. And once your taste buds realize that the McMuffin is so 1994, they’ll never go back.
4 servings, takes approximately 10 minutes
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tbsp slivered almonds
3 tbsp dried cranberries
2 tbsp maple syrup
pinch of salt
Put all ingredients in a small pot. Bring to a boil and then immediately reduce the heat to low and let it simmer until desired thickness, stirring often so it doesn’t burn.
