Oatmeal is a quick and easy way to get a fiber boost. If you have a very busy week, prepare oatmeal for several days at a time by placing one serving of pre-measured dry ingredients into a re-sealable container. In the morning, just add the wet ingredients and pop it in the microwave for a healthy breakfast.

  • Bring water to a boil in small saucepan on the stove. Add oats, flax meal, chia seeds, coconut, and blueberries to water. Stir to combine.

  • Cook about 3-5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

  • When done, stir in maple syrup and top with dash of cinnamon. (Sometimes I even add some milk to make it even creamier). Enjoy!
