Oats + Hemp + Water
And some kind of add-in:
[FLASHBACK] I used to work at this beach resort and every morning they had this amazing breakfast buffet && every morning I’d sneak away from all the tourists and get a huge bowl of oatmeal and just pile on the fresh blueberries. Fresh is where it’s at. No honey. No sugar. Just plain oatmeal & blueberries. That was like the best part of that summer job. HA. Blueberries are easily my fav way to brighten up a bowl of oatmeal.
Nowadays I’m still loyal to my oatmeal.
The same breakfast every single day keeps my mornings running smoothly.
I don’t like making decisions first thing.
I wake up & I’m on autopilot. Start coffee. Make oatmeal. Pack boyfriend’s lunch. Have breakfast with boyfriend. Watch some Athlean-X videos.
I like my mornings like that.
Nice & Easy.
My reasons for making oatmeal my go-to breakfast:
- It’s quick & easy! It takes me like 5 min to make mine & my boyfriend’s
- All the fiber keeps everything pretty regular if ya know what I mean… ;))
- They aren’t the most nutritionally dense food, but since they’re so simple, it’s easy to add as much healthy stuff as I want!
My reasons for adding Hemp:
- Adds protein
- Adds fiber
- Adds healthy fats
- Adds magnesium aka magic
- No nasty ass chemicals (it’s literally just crushed up hemp seeds)
I add hemp to shakes too. It’s absolutely the only kind of protein I add to my stuff. I’m not a whey protein kinda girl. No whey, no how ;))
This is the hemp I like: Nutiva Hemp, Organic
For post-workout shakes, I blend up almond milk, hemp protein, cinnamon, and a banana.
I recently found out that Dr. John Rusin eats the same breakfast every single morning too! (Cream of rice lol what??) … I’ve also featured Dr. Rusin on my Resources page.
He said that keeping this breakfast habit is what works for him because he already knows how it affects his body, and that it will be just what he needs to fuel his workouts.
I love learning about the people I admire and what habits they keep.
[SIDE NOTE] An awwwesome podcast to listen to if you’re into physical therapy (or health/fitness/business/pain science in general) is one called Therapy Insiders. That’s where I heard Dr. John Rusin talking about his “Rusin Gruel” habit!
Speaking of habits…
I’m off to plan some meal prepping. I am not organized with my lunches/dinners so this will be my first time meal prepping and I am pretty excited! I think if I can get this down, then I will be able to help future patients one day with their own healthy goals.
Oh! And if we haven’t connected on Snapchat, we should! I am getting closer & closer to the application date for PT school (JULY 1!!) so I’ll be doing a lot of documenting/trying not to freak out there. Plus, snap is probably my fav social media place right now. Hope to see you there.
Do you have the same breakfast every morning?
Have you ever tried hemp?
Have you tried meal prepping? Any tips?
I play all day on Snap & Twitter!
Come say hi :))
