      I forgot all about this group! Time to bring it back to life.

      This morning I had a really delicious breakfast and want to share.

      I put a small handful of raw almonds into my blender with about 1 1/2 cups of water, a splash of maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I blended it up to make almond milk but didn’t strain it out so I would have the pulp still inside.

      After chilling the almond milk, I poured it over shredded wheat cereal.

      It was delicious!!!

        • Green Juice for me.

          I juiced all sunday and half a day today.

          This is the only thing that helps me keep off the weight in check.

        • Sounds yummy Cynthia.

          I need to figure out some sort of breakfast on the go.  I’ve been eating yogurt for breakfast for years and years and years, but it’s just not filling enough to see me thru till break time.

        • blender died b/f the move.  I don’t juice or do smoothies, so I’m finding that the food processor is enough right now.

        • I’ve made a version of this before and love it. This is a newer version and I made it last night for this morning. Awesomeness! BTW I cut the ingredients in half since the full recipe is too much for 2 people.

          Steel cut oats cook overnight with bananas, walnuts and spices to create a healthy, make-ahead breakfast that will be waiting for you in the morning.
          Ingredients
          1 cup steel cut oats
          1 ripe banana – mashed
          ¼ cup chopped walnuts
          2 cups skim milk (or almond milk)
          2 cups water
          2 tablespoons flax seed meal
          2 teaspoons cinnamon
          1 teaspoon vanilla
          ½ teaspoon nutmeg
          ½ teaspoon salt
          banana slices, walnuts or brown sugar – optional garnish
          Instructions
          Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and stir until well combined.
          Cook overnight on Low for 8 hours.
          In the morning, stir oatmeal with a fork to loosen the steel cut oats and make sure everything is fully incorporated.
          Serve warm with banana slices, chopped walnuts or a pinch of brown sugar if you wish.
