Blueberry Oats

I'm being cognizant with my fats, but I also want to make sure my breakfast is satiating. I don't count calories, but I did put this breakfast into Cronometer to see anyway. It was just about 500 calories, which is exactly how much I like to eat for breakfast everyday. I usually can't finish the whole bowl, though. I just eat until I am comfortably full.

1 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups of water
1 cup of frozen organic blueberries
1 T. unsweetened coconut flakes
1 T. ground flaxseed
a sprinkle of buckinis

Bring water, oats, and blueberries to a soft boil. Reduce to low heat and cook 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Top with coconut flakes, ground flaxseed, and a sprinkle of buckwheat groats (buckinis).

    1. Not necessarily. I just like to make sure they're organic. I don't always put those in my ingredients because I don't want people to think they HAVE to buy them organic. Some things I don't budge on (like greens and berries and thin-skinned fruits and veggies that I eat the skin/peel). Oats are negotiable. ;-)
