WHY WE LOVE BREAKFAST

April 27, 2016

Your metabolism is like a furnace—you need to fuel it to start the fire.

That’s why it’s important to fuel your body with breakfast in the morning. But not just any breakfast – we’re talking about real, wholesome foods that feed your body with complex carbohydrates, protein, and high-quality fats. Having this synergistic group of macronutrients sets you up for a successful day ahead. And here’s the amazing news, Oat My Goodness Granola contains all three --- providing long-lasting energy, and enhancing your memory and attention. Sounds like a pretty good deal!

Here are three nutritious and oat-so delicious breakfast ideas that will keep you feeling full, focused, and ready to take on the day.

1)   Power-House Parfait
Start with a big dollop of non-fat Greek yogurt, add Oat My Goodness Starshine and top with chia and pomegranate seeds. The nutty granola and chia seeds are loaded with heart-healthy fats and fiber, and the yogurt provides an extra boost of protein.

2)   Nutty-Nana Smoothie Bowl
Blend together almond milk, half a frozen banana, your favorite frozen berries, and a spoonful of any nut butter. (Feel free to sneak in some spinach, too!) Pour into a big bowl and top with a generous handful of Oat My Goodness Vintage Granola for a little extra sweetness and crunch. This protein and fiber-filled meal with hold you over until lunch rolls around. Grab a spoon and dig in.

3)   Apple-Nola Mini Pizzas
That’s right, you read that correctly. These mini “pizzas” are a snap to make and are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. De-core an apple and slice into 1/4 inch-thick slices. Top with nut butter and/or non-fat Greek yogurt and a big sprinkle of Oat My Goodness Bad Monkey. Add any other “pizza toppings” you like: shredded coconuts, raisins, or finely chopped strawberries, the skies the limit!
