"I believe in the whole meal-prep movement,"Jacqueline shared via Facebook live last week on a "Monday with Maria."
Despite her busy schedule, Jacqueline makes sure her health is kept a priority. How does she do that practically?
She starts with meal-prepping healthy, hearty breakfasts to give her body nutrients that will sustain her energy and focus throughout the day!
Last week, we shared the recipe for Maria's homemade oatmeal. What about a Version Two? Here is Jacqueline's take on what a delicious oatmeal recipe entails.
Jacqueline's Super-food Oatmeal Recipe:
1/3 cup of oatmeal
2 tablespoons of sliced almonds
1 tablespoon hemp seeds (a great protein source)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of organic raisins
1 teaspoon of apple pie spice seasoning (or to taste)
1 organic pitted date
1 tablespoon of cinnamon honey (or to taste)
1 tablespoon of freshly grounded flax seeds
1 cup of hot water (adjust depending on how liquid you like your oatmeal)
1. Put oatmeal in a to-go container.
2. Add sliced almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, organic raisins, apple pie spice seasoning, a pitted date, and cinnamon honey to the oats.
3. Ground flax seeds and add to the oats.
4. Mix ingredients together
5. For yummiest results, add hot water when you are ready to eat and let sit for 5 minutes.
This is such a flexible recipe! Add and subtract what you want... add hot water to cook in advance, or wait until you are hungry! Keeping everything in a small glass container means you can take it just about anywhere and still get a nutrient-dense breakfast.
*Pro tip - make 5 containers on Sunday night, store in the fridge, and have easy breakfast's all week long!
