Even though this oatmeal comes in at less than 400 calories, it’s packed with enough fiber to keep you full and satisfied until lunch. The shredded carrots add vitamin A, which supports healthy vision, a healthy immune system and red blood cell growth. Walnuts add satisfying crunch, along with vegan omega-3 fatty acids for heart and brain health.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 oz Walnuts, Chopped
  • 2 tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Spices, cardamom

DIRECTIONS

1 Pour the almond milk, spices and grated carrots into a sauce pan on medium heat. Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 3 minutes.
2 Add the oatmeal and simmer, stirring continuously, for 5 minutes (or until the oatmeal takes on your desired texture). Remove from heat.
3 Stir in the coconut sugar and walnuts, then serve immediately.
