Amped Fertility Oats are an easy win on a cold day! You know I’m all about the fertility smoothies, since they make it easy to get in a balanced meal with protein, fat, fiber and antioxidants that you can eat with one hand!

But what if your acupuncturist recommends that you eat only warm foods?

Homemade oatmeal is a fantastic whole-grain, high-fiber option. But eating a lot of carbs all at once without protein & fat to balance it out is pretty much guaranteed to spike your blood sugar.

If I eat oatmeal for breakfast, I’m pretty much guaranteed to have a blood sugar crash 2 hours later. Or just want to go back to bed!

So, this is how we eat oats in my house!

 

oatmeal hemp chia flax

 

I start with 1/4 cup of oats and then add ALL the seeds: flax, chia, and hemp.

Then I add protein & flavorings. I used pumpkin seed protein, collagen, cinnamon & ginger (both warming spices!). Then I added raw cacao powder, not only for the flavor but also for a boost in magnesium & iron.

Then I added 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries and a cup of unsweetened coconut milk (I use So Delicious in the green container). I microwaved the whole thing for 3 minutes, stirring about halfway through.

I topped mine with chopped dates and a spoonful of sunflower seed butter! So hearty & filling!

It’s dairy free and gluten free and high in fiber and iron and low in sugar. If you subtract the fiber, you end up with ~25 grams of net carbs. Still on the highER side, but much lower than a bowl of oats on its own!

I hope you enjoy my Amped Fertility Oats!
