1/2 cup steel cut oats soaked overnight in 1 cup water

It is not essential to soak the oats overnight but it does cut down on cooking time. In the morning, put the soaked oats and their water into a pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until oats are tender and to your liking.

Top with ingredients of your choice. 1 tbsp ground flax seeds or whole chia seeds, dash of cinnamon, berries or fruit of your choice provided eating fruit in combination with other foods does not upset the stomach.

Cook oatmeal as per instructions depending on kind of oatmeal purchased (steel cut, whole rolled, etc).

Top with walnuts or almonds, ground flax seeds, chia seeds and berries of your choice

2 cups unsweetened nut or seed milk of choice (almond, hemp, coconut, etc)
1 cup uncooked quinoa
dash of cinnamon
nuts and seeds
berries or other fresh fruit

Bring milk to a boil in a saucepan. Add quinoa and spice. Return to a boil and turn temperature down to a simmer. Cover with a lid and simmer until the quinoa has absorbed the milk (approximately 15 minutes) and is tender. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and leave it for 15 minutes.

When serving, add more milk to achieve desired consistency, stir in a dollop of nut or seed butter to make it creamier, top with chopped fresh fruit berries to add low glycemic sweetness, and nuts or seeds to add crunch.

Alternate making this with cinnamon one day and cardamom the next.
