How to Supercharge your Oatmeal

The humble oat, a nutritious staple in the human diet for thousands of years, has been largely under-appreciated, and even demonized in recent years by people who appear to be terrified by the mere mention of this, or any (gulp) grain.

Like it or not, the oldest historical human dietary record is actually The Bible, from which we know that whole grains have been a pillar of human nutrition for 6,000 years and are the reason most of our ancestors survived at all.

But we found some bones that we think was a caveman from 2 million years ago, who only ate meat and berries, and that he lived a long healthy life…

It was from this type of unverifiable speculation that the Paleo Diet was born.

On the flip side, scientific research abounds with anthropological and epidemiological studies of people groups all over the world with exceptionally long life and low incidence of chronic Western diseases. The vast majority of these people groups, including rural Africans, Asians, Indians, and South Americans, eat a traditional diet rich in plant-food, especially carbohydrates including paleo no-nos beans and whole grains.

Now, having said that, some of today’s grains (like wheat) have been cross-bred, hybridized and processed to death. White flour being the prime example. You should stay away from refined grains.

And unless you’ve actually been living in a cave, you’ve probably heard that gluten is a legitimate agitator for some people, causing a myriad of health problems from congestion to fibromyalgia to inflammatory bowel disease. This is true for a small percentage of people and if you have health problems, eliminating a potential agitator like gluten is highly recommended in order to get to the root cause of your health issue.

Oats are a gluten-free grain and many people with wheat/gluten sensitivities (I get congestion) have reported that they can eat oats without any problems whatsoever. One thing to keep in mind. Oats are often processed and packaged in the same facilities as other grains, which can result in cross-contamination with trace amounts of gluten. If this is a concern for you, your best bet is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Oats, which are processed in certified gluten-free facilities.

Steel cut oats vs rolled oats
Steel cut oats are cut with a steel blade. That’s it.
Rolled oats are steamed, rolled and lightly toasted. Essentially pre-cooked.

Steel cut oats are all the rage these days, but nutritionally, they are only slightly healthier, and in my opinion, they are a giant pain the rear because they take too long to prepare. I’ve tried all the shortcut techniques to reduce cooking time, like soaking them overnight or chopping them up in the Vitamix, but they still take way too long, and then somehow I end up burning the oats in the bottom of the pan while the rest of the oats remain undercooked.

Basically every time I try steel cut oats, I end up with a frustrated frowny-face eating a really lousy bowl of oatmeal, and wishing I had just used the rolled oats.

Organic rolled oats are super cheap and fast.
They cost $1.60/lb (per pound!) in the bulk section at Whole Foods and cook in 5 minutes.
So that’s why I prefer rolled oats.

Cooking Directions

For traditional hot oatmeal I boil 2 cups of water on the stove in my Teavana Glass Tea Kettle then pour it over the oatmeal until it’s fully saturated. It’s ready to eat in 5 minutes.

You can put all the ingredients in a bowl and cook them together, or if you want to preserve some of the “rawness” of this meal you can stir in the rest of the ingredients once the oatmeal is fully cooked and ready to eat.

The totally raw option is to soak whole oat groats, or steel cut oats in purified water overnight, then add the rest of the ingredients in the morning when you are ready to eat it. You can eat it cold or warm it up on the stove to knock the chill off.

In the interest of simplicity, this post is all about supercharging traditional cooked oatmeal that everyone is familiar with.

Here are the ingredients

IMG_6278

1/2 cup of oatmeal
150 calories, 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Oats have the highest soluble fiber content of any grain, and it’s a very special fiber. An immune-boosting polysaccharide known as beta-glucans, which are also found in barley, mushrooms and nutritional yeast. Cancer patients can also take a beta-glucans supplement for immune support.

NOTE: 1/2 cup of dry oats is considered to be one serving, but if you don’t eat a lot, 1/4 cup may be sufficient. If you are trying to gain weight, or have a huge appetite like me, use 1 full cup of dry oatmeal, which will give you 300 calories, 10 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber before you add the rest of the goodies.

3 tablespoons of Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Hearts
These are raw shelled hemp seeds. 10 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, plus 45% of your magnesium and phosphorus, 110% of your manganese, 20% of your iron and zinc, 8% of your B6 and Folate, and 2% of your calcium. Get Canadian grown hemp hearts here.

IMG_6283

 

2 tablespoons of Garden of Life Raw Organic Chia Seeds (U.S. Grown)
6 grams of protein, 6 grams of Omega-3, 10 grams of fiber, plus 10% of your magnesium, 14% of your calcium, and 8% of your iron. Get U.S. grown organic chia seeds here.

IMG_6284

 

2 tablespoons of Garden of Life Raw Organic Flax Seed (U.S. Grown)
3 grams of protein, 2.8 grams of Omega-3, 4 grams of fiber, plus 5% of your magnesium, 3% of your calcium, and 5% of your iron. Get U.S. grown organic flax seeds here.

IMG_6285


1-2 tablespoons of Now Foods Date Sugar
Date sugar is simply dried, ground up dates. That’s it.
And it has the highest antioxidant content of any sweetener.
Get date sugar here.

IMG_6287

 

1 tablespoon of Organic Blackstrap Molasses
Blackstrap molasses is the second highest antioxidant sweetener.
The flavor takes some getting used to, but I love it.
In addition to the antioxidants, 1 tbsp contains 20% of your daily potassium, 15% of your iron, 10% of your calcium, 10% of your B6, and 8% of your magnesium. Get organic blackstrap molasses here.

I also add organic super antioxidant spices Ceylon cinnamon and allspice. I use 1/2 tsp of each.

IMG_6288

A handful of organic berries
Berries have the highest concentration of anti-oxidants and anti-cancer compounds of any fruit.
Blue, black rasp, straw… just get some berries on there!

Supercharged Oatmeal

Nutrition totals for my supercharged oatmeal
1 dry cup of oatmeal, plus all these superfood fixins, has 29 grams of protein, 25 grams of fiber, about 70% of your daily magnesium, 110% of your manganese, 29% of your calcium, 48% of your iron, 20% of your potassium, 20% of your zinc, and 18% of your B6. And with the addition of berries and spices, this little breakfast will give you more antioxidants than most people get in a week on the Standard American Diet.

Oh, and it’s vegan. No animals necessary.

For a delicious chocolatey twist, add 1/2 tbsp of raw cacao powder.

One final tip. If you want to up the calories, add almond butter. It has 90 calories and 3.5 grams of protein per tbsp.

    Thank you, Chris! Old Fashioned rolled oats cooked stovetop are the staple breakfast for our family of 6 . . . I usually add in cinnamon and a bit of REAL salt with some raw honey. Your suggestions are really going to power up this meal!

  2. kim says:

    First, when I saw the picture, I thought it was a PA-Dutch dessert called “funny cake” and I was intrigued…haha! Then I realized it was oatmeal, and that was NOT chocolate, which made me laugh again…
    Anyway, looks yummy!Thanks!Do you ever shop with Z Natural Foods? Just curious. I get a lot of my bulk items there and save a good bit of money…no, I do not work for them.:-) Stay well and continue blessing the world!

  3. Paula says:

    Loved all these ingredients but have started using steel cut oats and don’t find them hard to cook at all! Using Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free steel-cut oats and just cook them in water on the stovetop for a little over 10 mins. They are chewy, and now that I’ve discovered these I love them over the others. Going to add all the other things you suggest above, though! thanks

  4. Patrick says:

    Chris, Webster from cancertutor says pre ground flax seeds become rancid 10 mins after they are ground. Is this true or something to be worried about for the flax to be effective? Thanks for the recipe!

    • Shari says:

      I never buy pre ground flax seed! The flavor difference is huge and fresh is always best. I will grind up a batch of seeds in my coffee grinder and then put them in a sealed container and keep in the fridge. I usually use it up within a week or so.

      Since I always have raw milk in the refrigerator, I keep the temp as low as I can go without freezing everything, therefore, the flaxseed maintains its freshness longer in an air tight container.

      • Trish Mutch says:

        I also grind my own flax seeds in a cheap coffee grinder (cost me $15 I think). It is so easy I do it every day. I think rancidity of ground flax is definitely an issue.

  5. Amy says:

    Once I tried steel cut oats, I’ll never go back. I love the texture of them. A lot of times I’ll cook them overnight in the crockpot. It makes enough for 5-6 days. Then I just warm up a little bit each day. I’ll have to see if I can find the ingredients you’ve listed here though, sounds delicious!

  6. Jennifer says:

    This is what we eat!! I was trying to find a substitute because it was a Big Bad Grain! Thanks for relieving my guilt!! LOVE a warm heart oatmeal. We add coconut oil and nuts to help with weight gain.

  7. Stephanie says:

    The nutrition in any grain quickly oxidizes as soon as the outer bran is broken open. Within 24 hrs. 40% of the nutrients (not calories) are gone. In 72 hours, 90% are gone. We have been making oatmeal with fresh rolled oats most mornings for about 15 years. It takes just a few more minutes, but the flavor is incredibly fresher.You’ll never go back to pre-rolled oats.

    • Chris Wark says:

      I’ve never heard that before Stephanie. Would you mind providing a link to scientific validation? Thanks!

      • Nancy Keeler says:

        It makes sense that any food that has more surface area(rolled oats)available for oxidation would lose more nutrients than a food that has not(pre-rolled oats). Therefore if you had to have rolled oats, rolling them closer to the time of ingesting them would be more optimal, IMHO.

    • Tracy says:

      How do you roll your own oats? Is there some kind of tool? As I understand it, all oats (including groats and steel cut) are steamed to kill the enzymes and stop them from turning rancid. It is very difficult to find true “raw” oats. I bought them once from a sprouting supply company I tried to eat them raw/sprouted but I found they irritated the back of my throat for hours afterward. They tasted terrible too!

      Thanks for the suggestions for the oatmeal, Chris. I had not thought of hemp hearts. I’m going to give that a shot.

    • Yesim says:

      Stephanie, I have heard of the same thing before; that the grains will oxidize… so, we are not really getting what we think we are in terms of nutrition. how do you roll your oats?

  8. Lisa Levin says:

    Chris, have you ever tried whole oat groats? It’s the whole grain, not cut, not sliced…just whole. Yes, it takes longer to cook. I just prep up a few days worth in advance, not so bad.

    Very yummy, nice amount of “chew”.

    Happy juicing, everybody!

  9. Louis says:

    thanks for the recipe! A nice and easy trick to cook whole kernels. Put them in a thermos with boiling water the evening before. Don’t fill to the brim though.

  10. Louis says:

    Oh, and I forgot: Health Force Vitamineral Earth would be another great addition :-)

  11. Nancy Keeler says:

    Don’t forget the organic virgin coconut oil!!

  12. debbie says:

    Excellent – I usually add chopped dates and either chopped walnuts or pecans since I like it crunchy.

  13. Debbie says:

    It’s so hard to read you posts with all the ads on the right hand side of the site. I get frustrated!!

  14. Hannah says:

    Hello Chris,

    I just wondered if you ate this while you were battling with cancer? The pictures are very nice.

  15. Jess says:

    Just tried Foodbabe’s recipe for overnight (no cook) raw oat groats, but added my own including hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, raw honey, hemp milk, rolled oats, almond butter, bananas. Very delishious.
    My 2 year old couldn’t get enough of it, had it for breakfast and dinner ;) I just bought some steel cut, so I’m going to give that a try. Thanks for this recipe, nice to have a variety!

  16. Paula Thomas says:

    Funny you mention “If you are trying to gain weight”. I never see people post something like that ever. Cuz who in their right mind wants to gain weight? But I happen to be one of those people that are underweight and have a hard time gaining weight so I appreciate the weight gaining tip! lol

  17. Holy cow- lots of goodness packed in that punch! I would add, that regardless of the oats you choose, to soak them overnight in whatever medium, altermative milk or water, and some apple cider vinegar. Makes cooking time a snap- AND makes the oats far more digestable. Soak your grains y’all! God bless you Chris!

  18. Julie says:

    I bought a “grain flaker” attachment for my stand mixer. I pour whole oats (or other grain) in the top, and it gets squished between two rollers and drops out the bottom. Freshly rolled oats, with no heat or other funny business!

    • Elise says:

      Julie,
      Is that for the KitchenAid Mixer? I have one of those from long ago out in the garage that I never use! Now I have a reason to use it and buy that attachment. I see where you can buy it at FYkitchen.com Thanks!

  19. Rita says:

    I cannot get any of the ingredients off Amazon for delivery in the U. K.

    I HAVE BASIL CANCER IN THE FACE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON PREVENTION N FOOD DEPARTMENT.

    • Leo S. says:

      Green veggies have been said to be beneficial and animal products promote more basal cell carcinoma. More fresh raw fruits and veggies will provide the cells what they need and also remove toxic substances. Good luck.

    • Linda says:

      Paul, Get Bill Henderson’s book Cancer Free. It will get you on the right track
      Linda

    • Elise says:

      Paul,
      I have had two basal cell cancers on my face, and have had to have extensive mohs surgery. I have eaten a very healthy diet for over 20 years and I still got the skin cancer. It is the UV damage from the sun or tanning beds that cause basal cell cancer. Usually takes a long time to develop so your sun damage could have occurred long ago, even when you were a teen.. I did extensive tanning/burning and was involved in may outdoor sports in the sun got burned many times. Even though I have olive/darker skin, it still happened. Now I wear a natural sunblock on my face. I don’t stay out too long but still do get sunshine as it is important for vitamin D..

  21. Monica says:

    Yum, yum, yum! Going to get as soon as may be.

  22. Audrey says:

    I was wondering if you could give me a calorie estimate on this entire meal? I have autoimune issues and might like a coaching session with you. Also, there has been excessive cancer in my family and early deaths. Do you have a link to contact you if interested in a session? Thanks.

  23. Renee says:

    I had a hard time reading all of the the contents of the oatmeal recipe page…The advertisements on the right side made it impossible to read!!!!!!!!

  24. June says:

    I use ground chia seeds, coconut flakes, cinn., clove powder, nutmeg, fresh apple pieces, a few raisins, strawberries, blueberries, rasberries. I don’t eat it all at one setting. The leftovers can go in fridge and eaten later either cold or warmed. A great snack instead of sweets.

  25. Kathleen Spencer says:

    Hi Chris, I live in Memphis and I was wondering if the date sugar can be purchased at any stores here? I want to try it but the shipping cost is too high.
    Thanks

  26. Amanda says:

    That was the funniest series of food pictures I’ve ever seen. I laughed so hard I had to wipe tears away from my eyes! Here’s why it was so funny: I didn’t think another person in this world had food as horrible looking as mine!! Mine tastes fantastic and I’m sure yours does too! And mine is also supercharged and healing!! But boy that sure does not look like oatmeal in the last picture! Or really any of the pictures except the first! Blessings to you! We are all on an interesting wonderful and funny journey!!

  27. Rebecca Myers says:

    LUV-LUV-LUV your oatmeal info here—-my fav breakfast! Thanks for posting this for all to see. I’m going to try some berries and hemp soon. I grind golden flaxseeds just before adding, throw in the chia seeds, local honey and cinnamon then fresh cut up apple chunks (w/skin). Sometimes throw in raw walnuts. I do the apples last, cool crispy room temp apples in hot oatmeal—yummy contrast.

    • Rebecca Myers says:

      Years ago I read a book by Martina Navratilova’s nutrition coach, Robert Hass. He suggested oatmeal with apples, bananas and raisins thrown in during the last few minutes of cooking. Very good!

  28. Larry Winfield says:

    Hi

    This sounds and looks awesome…
    I’ve been eating oatmeal every
    morning since the beginning of
    time…for me that is…
    I will definitely try this for my
    own good….

    Black Strap Molasses…on my oatmeal!!
    and I thought Molasses was only good
    for making sweet bread…Newfoundland
    style…that is.:)

    thanks

  29. Linda says:

    /great recipes/ I’m so excited. Saw my sister today. She said I had an orange tinge about me !!! :)
    Linda

  30. Kathy says:

    I, also have trouble reading your articles since the text is overlaid with the adds on the right side. Very frustrating since I LOVE your stuff! And I don’t have a clue what browser I use since my computer is 150 years old and my husband doesn’t think I need a new one!

  31. Ian says:

    Great Article with some interesting comments. I also have porridge Oats every morning for breakfast(this is the popular name used in the UK) and the additional additives seem like a great idea (thanks for the links Chris on where to get these) I can also sympathise with Paula about wanting to gain weight (went from 84kg down to 67kg during treatment) and it is very difficult to regain weight when eating healthily!

  32. antoinette says:

    I too have found it hard to put weight on but coconut oil has really helped and is delicious mixed in to porridge,I make mine with quinoa but I bet its just as good with oats.
    I look forward to more recipes!

  33. Sharon says:

    Chris, I’m surprised that you would not recommend oat bran over regular oatmeal. Am I missing something because everything I’ve read said that oat bran is much more nutritious. Kind of like eating whole grain breads instead of processed breads. I’d like your thoughts on this, please. By the way, I love your site!!

  34. Karl says:

    I was wondering if anyone has heard about oatmeal blocking your vitamins and minerals. I have heard of soaking them overnight to get rid of this problem. Please let me know if anyone can tell me if this is important.

  35. Yesim says:

    Chris, First of all, I love your website and appreciate it a lot. I love this recipe as well! One question: It looks like chia seeds have everything that flax seeds have, plus twice as much of them in the same serving size! why are you putting flax seeds in addition to chia seeds when you can easily replace the serving of flax with chia… I figured there must be a reason and was curious. Thank you so much!

  36. Zyxomma says:

    I love and adore oatmeal, but I love the steel-cut oats best. Usually, I cook them with some currants, and serve with coconut oil and salt. Yum.

  37. Ron says:

    Love the recipe! However, steel-cut oats are extremely easy to do if you do the crockpot method:

    1 part steel cut oatmeal
    3-4 parts water (you can substitute part of it for almond milk)
    a pinch of salt

    Put it in a crockpot on LOW (not keep warm, and definitely not HIGH) for 6-8 hours (or basically overnight).

    This will make the tastiest, smoothest oatmeal you’ve ever eaten in your life. Sure, there may be a little bit to scrape off the sides or the bottom, but there shouldn’t be much. Enjoy!

  38. Kim says:

    My recipe is a lot simpler but I really enjoy it. After you cook the oatmeal I’ve added sucanat sugar, raw pumpkin seeds and shredded apple. It has that apple crisp feeling. I can’t wait to add all of the yummy ingredients you mentioned above. Thanks

  39. yalixa says:

    Hey Chris. Do u have a slow cooker? That’s how I cook my steel cut oats. Leave it on overnight and have breakfast already done in the am! Here’s where I found the inspiration – http://www.theyummylife.com/Slow_Cooker_Apple_Cinnamon_Oatmeal

    You can of course modify the ingredients based on what you prefer.

    Thanks for your recipe! I will def try it.

    • jeanne says:

      Yalixa, that recipe looks amazing and great to wake up to. Chris, I would love your thoughts on that process of cooking the oats. Keeping it for a few days? Does that lessen the nutritional value?

      Thanks for the recipe for your particular breakfast. I am so curious about what you eat on a daily basis because I know you eat pretty much the same thing every day. I am on a ‘losing weight’ track right now and wonder how these complex carbohydrates might cause me to gain.

  40. Kate says:

    My husband has breast cancer . We are close to Memphis. Is it possible to meet in person for coaching?

    Thank you !

  41. Sandi says:

    Chris, thanks for all your videos. I was wondering if you could tell me if Vitameral Green and Garden of Life perfect food raw are pretty much the same. They seem very close to me. Would you know if one is better than the other? Thanks for this ministry. God Bless.

  42. Monica says:

    I have stage 4 colon cancer with metasis to the liver since oct. 2010. Have had 4 major surgeries 3 of them on liver. On 9-13-13, I decided I wanted a brake from chemo, so I told my dr. I will see you in 3 months, he convinced me to stay on avastin maintenance every 3 wks. I decided to agreed to the avastin for my family’ sake. I was so excited about embarking on my new quest of healthy eating and juicing, at that point I only had three very small tumors, the cancer was contained, I felt it was the right time to take a brake, my body was begging for a brake. For 3 months I had the time of my life shopping for blenders, juicers, jars etc. got everything I needed and began my healthy diet and juicing. I was juicing 7 lbs of carrots a day “delicious” ate as much organic fruits and veggies, cut out the white carbs, sugar, and fats. Had so much energy felt great. Then the dreaded time of cat scan came, ” forgot to mention that thru out this new adventure god was we me always praying every second I had”. Cat scan day came what I playfully call judgement day. And I regret to informed that now I have 7 to 8 tumors in the liver and unfortunately suspicious growth in the lungs which my dr. Believes is also cancer. Needless to say I am back on chemo, no hope for surgery, just trying to contain the beast, and maybe later we can explore some other options. I just was wondering do you think the natural sugar in the carrots was what cause this explosion of tumors ” cause in the 3 years since my diagnoses the cancer was not that bad at the most I had 3 tumors”.
    I want all of you readers to know that the beast has not destroyed my spirit I am still fighting and praying and still believe in healthy eating, I only have one regret I cannot have my carrot juice anymore!:-). Please respond

    • Lauren Coleman says:

      Hey Monica,

      First of all, never give up!
      Please keep eating healthy…don’t stop that. Lots of leafy greens, juicing, green smoothies, etc.
      Also please check out alternative cancer treatments, like in Suzanne Somer’s book, “Knockout,” and Ty Bollinger’s book “Cancer: Think Outside the Box.”

      Look into alternative cancer treatment centers, like Paracelsus al Ronc, Hippocrates Health Institute, and Oasis of Hope. There are a lot more out there.

      Also I’d check out greensmoothiegirl.com because she lists lots of cancer treatment ideas and locations. Very helpful stuff. Also greendrinkdiaries.com is wonderful for cancer advice, as is cancertutor.org.

      And most of all…do not give up! Keep eating healthy, stay away from refined food and processed foods, and keep drinking plenty of water and exercising gently.

      The previous rounds of chemo may have compromised your system even with the healthy eating, which is why you’re seeing new tumors, potentially. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still beat this.
      I’ll be praying for you. Don’t lose that excitement and zest for life. You can do this, Monica.

      Get on the gerson therapy ASAP!

    • Maureen Drazic says:

      I live in Canada and my hubby was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. He had stage 4 at first, then two tumors disappeared. He had the last one removed then his cancer came back after surgery. Back to square one.. we do all kinds of healthy eating but this time decided to try Cannabis oil. (Pheonix Tears) I know this is contraversial, depending on where you live.. but I have many friends whose cancer immediately stopped growing and reversing cancer like multiple myloema and stage 4 lung cancer being taken off the ‘death’ list. It’s worth a try as well as the raw healthy high alkaline diet. We have medical dispensaries here and I know alot of the States have been legalized now. Check out a documentary called “Run From the Cure”.. you’ll be glad you did. I had to open my mind up to it and our families are amazed at the results in my hubby already. It works fast which is nice. It’s another one of God’s miracles he put on this earth for us for medicine.

  43. Angel says:

    Your oatmeal recipe looks tasty, and certainly nutritious! I like to soak steel cut oats, then blend them up in the blender with cinnamon and/or chocolate, maple syrup or dates, and maybe a pinch of salt. BTW, I am going to check out that date sugar. We sometimes get coconut sugar, but I would rather use date sugar. Thanks for sharing. God bless! :)

  44. Debby Pothier says:

    I throw the oats,into my smoothies, so easy.

  45. Cheryl says:

    Oat groats are SO easy and SO delicious! I throw mine into my crock pot in the morning before work, add some warm (purified) water and a T or 2 of either plain organic yogurt or kefir, let them soak all day (1 c oats to 2 c water). Around 10 pm I add another 2 c of water, 1-2 tsp salt and let it go overnight on low. By morning you have a yummy porridge that you can add all that terrific stuff to. Or just organic butter, cream and a bit of honey or maple syrup, but adding all the other stuff is lots of fun!

  46. Suzi says:

    Chris..I have an important question for you. Are you familiar with Young Living oils and other healing products? If so what do you think, how have you used them, etc. If not…..I would treasure your opinion either way. Thanks Chris

  47. Lulla says:

    Wow thank you! I eat for breakfast every day rolled oats. My recipe is slightly different tho, so I’ll share in case you want a change at some point (for me your recipe is doing the trick as sometimes it gets boring :) ) I put in mine hazel nuts, walnuts, cashew nuts, sunflower seeds, fresh blueberries, banana, dry dates, raisins and cranberries and a little bit of almond milk (as I don’t like mine to be too thick). Sounds like a lot, but it fuels you for several hours which is great ’cause then you don’t feel like snacking between meals. Hope you enjoy it! Can’t wait to try yours… Blessings!! x

  48. Chris says:

    Chris. Knocking paleo in the fashion you do is just dumb. Take the time to at least understand it.

  49. Teresa says:

    Awesome! I’ve been spicing up my oatmeal with coconut oil, chia seeds, cinnamon & local seasonal raw honey. You’ve inspired me to take it up another notch! Try some coconut oil in yours. It makes it even more delicious!

  50. clyde says:

    I tried this with 2 cups of water.That was just to much.Did anyone else here have this problem?
