It's 5AM. Okay, it's 5:30 AM and I am starving. I just woke up and I need something to hold me over for a few hours while I work, but I don't want use the blender because everybody else is still sleeping. I walk into the kitchen, open the fridge, and thank myself for being proactive because there is a delicious jar of cold berry chia oatmeal at the front of the fridge.
Oh Thank God.
Since my schedule is so hectic, I have to have portable, quiet breakfasts that don't make me cringe. I don't eat eggs. I don't eat bacon. I'm not into premade smoothies (have you seen what a banana looks like a few minutes after you've opened it? Yuck.).
Cold oatmeal works for me. It has a nice texture, a crunch, and sweetness. I like to make cold oatmeal with chia seeds (or pumpkin seeds), nuts, berries, and every now and again, a whopping scoop of peanut butter. Check it out.
