I’ve simplified my breakfast, and you can too with my Quick Fix Oatmeal Mix!
I put together a big mix of breakfast ‘oats’ so that all I have to do is scoop from 1 place instead of multiple jars and containers. To make it I combined the following ingredients in a large jar:
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup barley flakes
1 cup rolled triticale
1 cup quinoa
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp black sesame seeds
3 tbsp sunflower seeds
Now all I have to do is heat about 1 1/4 cups water/soymilk combo on the stove, add a pinch of salt and scoop out a 1/2 cup of my Quick Fix Oatmeal Mix. It takes about 8-10 minutes to cooked, and has such a great texture to it. Sometimes plain oats can get mushy but with all of the variety in here you get all sorts of textures in your mouth.

Quinoa is a great source of complete protein and offers more iron than other grains and contains high levels of potassium and riboflavin, as well as other B vitamins: B6, niacin, and thiamin. It is also a good source of magnesium, zinc, copper, and manganese, and has some folate (folic acid).
Rolled triticale is a cross between wheat and rye. It has more protein than either of it’s parents and brings a very mild rye flavor to your bowl of oats.
Here’s my favorite way I’ve been enjoying it.
Blueberries and almond butter. Need I say more.
