People are always asking how to use coconut oil. One of my favorite ways is in my morning oatmeal. Another extremely popular use for coconut oil for breakfast is to fry your eggs in it. Yesterday morning, my oatmeal not only included coconut oil but a handful of other superfoods as well!
Steel-cut Oats– Only the best for my oatmeal. I prefer the McCann’s brand. Oatmeal is high in soluble fibre and is heart healthy, with the possibility of lowering cholesterol.
Walnuts– A high nutrient dense food, just 100 grams of walnuts packs in 15.2 grams of protein.
Fine ground Chia Seeds– A new comer on the super food scene, chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and add another 4 grams of protein to your oatmeal.
Cinnamon– One of the oldest spices, the exact health benefits of cinnamon are still being studied. But research suggests it helps improve your energy and blood sugar levels.
Coconut Oil– 1 tbsp of coconut oil in your oatmeal adds the good benefits of lauric acid, which can help your immune system.
Not only did I add all those super foods to my breakfast, I topped it off with almond milk, raisins, and for a crunchy texture, granola with flax seeds (another heart healthy superfood). The result was a filling breakfast that kept me full for a good 5-6 hours before I could eat lunch.
