I invented the nation’s most healthiest, most alive, most convenient, least expensive breakfast, and it’s completely non-processed. The best part is, I can’t make a profit off of it at all. You have to make it yourself. That’s how you know it’s good.
We know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s also one of the most difficult to pull off consistently and still be healthy. Because after eliminating the option of the quick and easy (and deadly) fast food options, what is there that is inexpensive and fiber-packed enough to keep a person full? And most importantly, what breakfast food is there that has no added sugar, essentially no fat, improves digestion, is easy to make, and actually tastes really good?
Oatmush. I will share it with you.
Start with a half a cup of rolled oats (make sure that rolled oats are the only ingredient; no sugar, salt, dehydrated fruit, evaporated cane juice, etc). Sometimes I use Publix store brand that costs about $2 for 32 oz. canister (13 servings); currently I’m using Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats that I bought from Whole Foods for just a dollar more:
3.5g fat (0.5 saturated, 0 trans), 1g sugar, 7g protein, 5 g dietary fiber
Just pour the oats in an empty coffee mug, then pour in hot water until the water is about ¼ inch above the top of the oats. Then grab a banana:
0g fat, 21g sugar (though it doesn’t count against you when eaten in its whole, natural form, but fruit juice does because it has been separated from the fiber of the fruit), 1g protein, 4g dietary fiber
Now with a fork, set the tip of the banana on the edge of the coffee mug, cutting the banana into slices that fall on top of the oatmeal. Then with the fork, mash the banana slices into oatmeal for a few seconds, like mashing a potato.
By this point, the Oatmush may not be as hot as the oatmeal you’re used to eating, so that means you may need to find hotter water to begin with. Don’t reheat the Oatmush in the microwave; that “kills” the life in it. At least 55% of the food we eat in a day needs to be alive. Live food helps our bodies fight off cancers and diseases (fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds, and nuts in their whole form); dead food doesn’t (meat, processed food, etc.).
If you want to keep things simple, then you’re done. Enjoy your Oatmush.
However, if you’d like to add more flavor and nutrition to your Oatmush, here’s how I do it. Mix in about a half a tablespoon of cinnamon (loaded with antioxidants). Next, get your hands on some hemp seed, found in your nearest Whole Foods. I use Nutiva’s Organic Shelled Hempseed from the refrigerated section of the store.
Hemp seed is extremely healthy and a major part of a healthy, daily diet:
13.5 g fat (1g saturated, 0g trans), 1g sugar, 11g protein, 1g dietary fiber
It contains more fatty acids than any other nut or seed found in nature (which is a very good thing). Hempseed contains all 9 essential amino acids and is high in phytonutrients, which support and protect the health of our body’s immunity, bloodstream, cells, tissues, organs, and mitochondria (our body’s “life cells”).
*Flax seed can be substituted in place of hemp seed, which is comparible in nutrition but not equal.
So every morning now, I start off with a good healthy cup of Oatmush. Complete with hempseed, here is the unofficial complete nutritional value:
17g fat (the good kind), 1.5g saturated fat, Og trans fat, 24g sugar (the good kind), 19g protein, 10g dietary fiber
And that’s with nothing man-made or processed. A completely alive breakfast. The best part of it is, I can’t sell you Oatmush. It’s not a marketable product. Because if it was, it would have to come in a bag or box and the bananas would have to be dehydrated. No one can sell you Oatmush. You have to make it yourself. And that’s another sign that it’s really good for you.
It’s really quick and easy to make. Only takes me about one minute, literally. And I dare the entire world to find a healthier, more convenient, less expensive breakfast that is completely alive and not processed in any way.
Oh, and, you’re welcome. For my secret recipe, that is:
