I can’t get enough of this delicious, easy breakfast! Oatmeal is fantastic for your heart. It is rich in soluble and insoluble fiber which work together to lower bad cholesterol. It is always best to soak your grains overnight for highest benefits and assimilation.
- 1 cup of steel cut oats
- 2 cups of warm filtered water plus 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Optional yummy extras
Mix oats with the warm water mixture, cover, and leave in a warm place for 7-24 hours. Drain and add 2 cups of water with sea salt to soaked oats. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and add your own yummy extras like almond, coconut, or oat milk, natural sweeteners like maple syrup, raw honey and agave nectar, dried fruits, fresh fruit, nuts, coconut, ground flax seeds, and other seeds.
My favorite combination is crushed walnuts, 1/2 tsp of ghee or clarified butter, and dried cherries.
