A Simple Breakfast Mix...

I throw things like this together whenever I am in a rush or simply needing to make something nutritious with little stomach patience to spare! Feel free to change up the amount or to use a different dried fruit (I like raisins because of their uniform, small size).

Serves 1

1/3 cup really raw rolled oats (i.e. old-fashioned, not instant)
handful almonds or sunflower seeds (they can be presoaked and dehydrated if you have the time)
handful raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Thhis makes a great breakfast or snack. The cinnamon will balance your blood sugar so that the carbs from the oats and raisins will provide lasting energy.

I make something incredibly similar! I forgoe the oats because I don't do grains, but use chopped nuts (soaked and dried) like walnut, sunflower seeds and almonds, tossed with a little chopped apple, banana and raisins.

Then I add the cinnamon for the same reason--to balance my blood sugar. A little almond milk and you have a raw cereal!
