This Keto “Oatmeal” is a great and delicious way to start the day. The recipe call for the superfoods flax seeds, hemp hearts, and coconut oil to make it a nutritionally dense way to break your fast. It’s packed with healthy fats already, but if you still need more add a bulletproof coffee and you are all set.
Oatmeal was my morning go to for many, many years. I thought I was making such good/healthy choices when I would wake up and make a bowl of cinnamon brown sugar oatmeal before school. Then once I entered the workforce and being on time become much more important, I transitioned to overnight oats. But no matter the number of miles I ran or reps in the weight room, I just couldn’t seem to make any progress . Then I heard about a book called the Primal Blueprint and it really changed my entire outlook on diet. I had been a high carb eating, chronic cardio kind of guy up until that point, because that’s what we are taught (intentional or not). I read that book and adopted some of its principles in my daily life which I believe put me on a path to Keto.
The keto diet has certainly been under fire lately by skeptics since it is such a drastic change from conventional wisdom. I’m not going to use this platform as a soapbox to try and convert people to the keto diet (because I’ve said it a hundreds of times, “the best diet is the one you can stick to”) but I do encourage you to try it if you are on the fence. I feel better in every aspect of my life after transition to this way of eating.
All our bodies are different and mine did not tolerate the high carb sugar filled breakfasts (whose does?) and Keto works for me. This particular version of my Keto “Oatmeal” contains almond butter and a few blueberries for added nutrition without sending the carb count soaring (berries are great for that btw).
