How about a breakfast you can feel good about eating? I have admittedly never been much of a breakfast person and it’s something I am trying to incorporate into my own diet regimen. This Vegan Steel Cut Oatmeal Bowl is loaded with “superfood” ingredients and high in protein. I used Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk® to prepare this delicious and nutritious start to my day. Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk® has 10 grams of protein per serving and is a completely organic, plant-based protein. Full of calcium and vitamin D, it is also vegan, dairy free, gluten free, soy free and non-GMO, all things that are very important to me personally.
Although it varies daily, today I topped my steel cut oatmeal with walnuts, cranberries and banana slices dipped in a mixture of flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts (wish I could remember where I first saw this done) and finished it all off with a sprinkle of cinnamon. I also added a splash more of the almond milk just prior to serving.
Just look at all of that yummy goodness! If you prefer a bit more sweetness and to counteract the tartness of the cranberries, a touch of brown sugar would be a nice addition.
I found the Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk® at my local Scottsdale, AZ Walmart and it was admittedly a little challenging to locate. A very helpful store associate pointed me to the snack aisle where, along with the non-dairy milks, I saw it. This store has been undergoing a bit of a remodel lately and I think because of that, my store might be the exception here. Be sure to ask if you can’t readily find it.
Orgain graciously allowed The Veg Life! to use this awesome infographic to highlight some of the benefits of their almond milk.
I went with a fall theme in my topping selections, but feel free to mix it up! Add what you enjoy. Recipes are meant to act as a guide, not a rule. Make it your own.
