I am up so early this morning!
Well earlier than I have been up in a while. My breakfast has been eaten, and in just a little bit once in all done digesting I’ll be heading to the gym to work on my arms and to do some HIIT training today.
I loved hearing all of your favorite smoothie combination’s, keep them coming! All of the new ideas are so refreshing especially since I like anyone else can get stuck in a smoothie rut and make the same thing (ahem.. green smoothie.) over and over. The result? Green smoothie burn out. I haven’t had one in a few months. Do I miss them? Perhaps. I think ill wait a little longer, the thought is still making my stomach a teeny bit queasy.
I have another recipe for you! 🙂 It’s something totally green and groovy (thus the name, original right?) and will get you going in the morning. Promise! And while looks may be deceiving it tastes wonderful, so wonderful that you may wonder just how it could be good for you…
Groovy Green Oats
1/2 cups oats
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup vanilla soymilk
1/2 tsp agave
1/2 tsp spirulina powder
1/4 tsp wheat grass powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp flax seed meal
Bring 3/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of soymilk to a boil on the stove or in the microwave. While your water/milk combo is beginning to boil mix all of your dry ingredients in a bowl. When the water is nice and hot, pour it in a little at a time to your liking (I usually use a full cup or a teeny bit less.) Mix well and place a plate overtop to “cook” your oats, so they get nice and soft. Add in your agave nectar and vanilla extract and mix.
If your like me and you will put anything into your oatmeal you can add one or any of the following…
Sliced bananas, raisins, wheat germ, 1-2 tbsp protein powder.
Or anything else that strikes your fancy really.
With this bowl of oats I’m up to 12 ingredients, watch out Katie or I may just steal your title of the oatmeal queen. 😉 Just teasing! I honestly don’t know how I would even cram 2 more ingredients into this bowl. But believe me, where there is a will, there’s a way.
