“Breakfast? Who has time for that! Eh, I don’t need breakfast. I’m not hungry now.“
Enters my delicious breakfast of champions.
What’s so good about flaxseeds?
High in fiber- which will keep you fuller, longer
Is a complete protein which means it has every amino acid your body can’t make on its own.
To get these great benefits you need to grind the whole flaxseeds into flour consistency. I just put a cup or so in my blender and in a few seconds I have a nice amount of flaxseed meal to last a while. Then put it in a sandwich bag and place in your freezer to stay fresh. You can also buy already ground flaxseed.
Because flaxseed fills you up it is a great thing to have in the morning since you will feel satisfied for a while. I usually have a mid-morning snack, but on the days I have this breakfast I am not usually hungry to even have a snack. What’s funny is, I actually prefer my oatmeal with flaxseed. It tastes so much better and makes it thicker too. Even talking about it makes me crave it! Hey, and if i’m craving things like flaxseed -we’re all good!
Flaxseed meal mixed with water is also a great egg substitute for many baked good. Just 1 Tb of flaxseed meal mixed with 3 Tb of water. Let it sit till it gets thick and use like you would one egg.
You can also throw some ground flaxseed into your smoothie or baked goods, but I prefer it most in my:
You can leave out the fruit and eat any fruit on the side. Sometimes I have it with an apple.
You can also make a smaller portion of oats using 1/4 cup dry oats and 1/2 cup boiling water.
See this cute spoon I eat my oatmeal with! I love eating it with a small spoon. It helps me take my time and make my oatmeal last a while. Not to mention the 1/3 cup of dry oats get much bigger when cooked so you feel like you are eating a ton.
Give this recipe a try and let me know how it went!
