Not yo Mamma's Oatmeal

Updated: Jul 20, 2018

I've had patients come into my office for their first consultation, totally terrified by the doctor's findings and lab results, that decide to do everything they've head that helps with heart health, blood sugar control, kidney health, etc. A common change people make is to change their regular breakfast to oatmeal. Plain, boiled oats in water or milk. Every. Day. For the few that like it that way, great! That's less work for you. For the rest of us who want more than just #boringassoats, I offer some reprieve.


Aside from adding the typical fruits and cinnamon, you can vary your oatmeal by adding a multitude of spices, extracts and other natural flavorings. Recently, I made a #desioatmeal carrot halva flavor. in times past I've made a #mediterraneanoatmeal flavor with figs, orange zest, and orange blossom water.



Regardless the flavor combinations, you can have some jaw-dropping #gourmetbreakfast oats fit for any #millennialfoodie on a shoestring budget. That's my specialty at #bespokenutritionconsulting, to give you the tools to make something magical, fit for any cultural preference and any budget.

For a little teaser, use the little flavor list below to vary the grain you use for a healthy alternative to oats, change the flavors using any or a combination of multiple flavors from different groups. To tailor recipes specifically to suit your needs, schedule an appointment.


Do you love lemon blueberry scones? Try lemon zest and blueberries in your oatmeal instead. Want something besides oatmeal or are you gluten intolerant? Hit me up for more advice.
