Wellness Wednesday Recipe-Nutrition Packed Oats

Chiropractic Eating Healthy in Altoona IA

Do you struggle with a healthy breakfast in Altoona? Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day but if your mornings look anything like ours-they are usually rushed. It’s hard to find a nutrition packed breakfast that doesn’t require a lot of time but today I’m showing you a breakfast that takes less than 2 minutes, is full of nutritional benefits and tastes delicious.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-Oats (gluten free optional)

-Peanut butter

-Maple syrup. Make sure it’s not one with high fructose corn syrup or high sugar content.


-Chia seeds

-Flax seeds

-Choice of fruit (raspberries and blueberries pictured)

The walnuts and chia seeds provide an excellent source of all Omega 3 fatty acids and necessary antioxidants. The oats are a great source of fiber and have been shown to reduce blood pressure. Flax seeds are powerful anti-inflammatories that can also help lower the risk of heart attacks and certain kinds of cancer.

The best news though? It takes all of two minutes to reap these powerful health benefits. Just cook your oats with water, put a little maple syrup until desired consistency. Add a scoop of peanut butter, a teaspoon of each seed, a handful of walnuts. Sprinkle with fruit.
