Mock Oatmeal

Holiday season is on us in full force. I love food, especially during the holidays when even the broccoli side has meaning, because grandma would always serve it with Christmas dinner. But let's be real; with all the opportunities to indulge it is too easy to get sidetracked and have the seasonal recipes attack our waistlines.

Every diet plan I have read emphasizes the importance of breakfast. I have found this to be true; my whole day seems off when I skip breakfast. I also notice a difference between starting the day off with protein versus sugary carbs. So to be proactive while surrounded by Holiday Goodies, I am making the extra effort to ensure a good start to my day and rotating between a protein shake, eggs, or this Mock Oatmeal.

2 Tbs. Chia Seeds
2 Tbs. Flaxseed
3 Tbs. Unsweetened Coconut
2/3 cup of hot water (boiled)
4 Tbs. Almond Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Dash of Cinnamon

Mix the chia, flax and coconut in a bowl.
Pour the water, almond milk, and vanilla into the dry ingredients. Cover and let sit for a few minutes Add cinnamon and toppings of choice. Stevia can be used to sweeten, I prefer berries.
