Breakfast is for Champions: Strawberry Pecan Oatmeal

There is nothing like a run on Chicago’s lakefront while the wind pushes you back (I type sarcastically.) When I made it home I was tired but I also was hungry out off my mind. I am not a big breakfast person. I don’t keep breakfast foods around. On any given day nuts, fruit, oatmeal, and eggs are stocked in my kitchen.

With limited breakfast options, I decided to eat some oatmeal. I pulled out the container of steel cut oats and to my dismay the cooking instructions said it would take 20 to 30 minutes to cook. I wanted to pass out at that moment; but as I kept reading, the microwave option said that my tummy would be smiling in less than ten minutes.

If you ever had steel cut oats, you know that when cooked alone, the dish does not send your taste buds soaring. I added brown sugar, fresh strawberries, chopped pecans, and ground hemp seeds (for added protein).

Oatmeal Ingredients

After the oatmeal was finish cooking in the microwave, I added brown sugar, chopped pecans, and topped it off with fresh strawberries. With one bite, my stomach was in a happy place.
