This recipe is one of my favorite recipes for a fall and winter breakfast. It is great for a post-workout meal and will support sustaining your energy throughout the day. You can modify the ingredients and herbs to your palette or match it to your Doshic (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) or digestive needs.
Prepare organic, gluten-free oatmeal to the consistency of your liking. You could also do quinoa, millet or brown rice. In the fall and winter, the warm, moist and heavy nature of oatmeal is good for balancing Vata. In the summer use the lighter grains. To every cup and a half of cooked grain add:
- Add in 1/2 scoop of plant-based plain or vanilla protein powder (I love the Garden of Life plant-based protein powders)
- 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Pinch of cardamom, ground ginger
