When I started this nutritional journey several years ago I found this extremely beneficial. It helped me realize appropriate serving sizes, use ingredients that were nutritionally dense and good for my body. I knew exactly what my end product would be and that it would be calorically
sufficient for my needs.
I am always putting the new habits I learned to good yes in the kitchen. Earlier this week to fuel my body for the workout I had I whipped up an amazingly delicious oatmeal dish just from simple, pure.
1/2 c oats
1/2 c cashew milk
2 Tbsp almond butter
1 Tbsp raw honey
1 tsp chia seed
Cook then top with
1/4 blueberries (I used frozen)
1 Tbsp hemp seed (for some extra protein)
1 Tbsp organic unsweetened coconut flakes
