"the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." mark twain
yeah, yeah. we get it. summertime in san francisco doesn't really exist. but what does? great summery produce! I use food as a vehicle to remind myself of what I might be missing. In this case, tropical delicacies (in desperate need of a tropical vacay). to make this morning bowl you need:
1 c rolled oats
1 c water
1 c almond milk
2-3 tbs sliced almonds
2-3 tbs coconut flakes
2 tbs chia seeds
cook oats according to directions on the packaging. sub out half the water for almond milk half way through cooking process (you will notice the oats have soaked up the water. this is when you add the almond milk).
while the oats are cooking you can cut up the mango. once the oats are done simply top with your ingredients.
a very simple but delicious way to start your morning! some protein, fiber and carbs to get you going! extra points if you bump some reggae during the process.
