It sounds like a lot of you love the chunky monkey nut butter cookies! If you make them and blog about it, send me the link because I’d love to see and share.
Lately, I’ve been in a breakfast rut, a healthy, tasty, never-gonna-quit-it rut.
I’ve blogged about vega before, and I’m here to say it’s no joke or fad—it’s love. I think that the concept of a whole food optimizer that you can grab and go is genious, especially as a college student who deals with early classes. But a smoothie would never hold me over, which is why I’ve been eating this mix & go breakfast.
This is full of whole grains, protein, fiber, and healthy fats if you add nut butter, and takes no more than 5 minutes and no cooking—I swear!
It starts with 4 basic ingredients: Vega smoothie mix, oatmeal, a banana, and either milk or a non-dairy milk(unpictured)
Start by mashing the banana to make it a smooth puree.
Next add 1/2 cup oats, 1 heaping scoop of Vega shake & go smoothie, and 1/4 cup milky liquid.
Within a few minutes, it becomes a thick sort of pudding.
You can eat it like that for a low-fat, high-fiber and protein breakfast or dress it up.

If you’re worried about the taste and texture of raw oats, after 10 minutes or so in the pudding they start to break down and soften so just give yourself a little time before eating this.
I think this is available at Whole Foods if you’re wondering where to buy it, but they didn’t have it at my small local one. I’ll look at another one and report back.
Do you have a favorite breakfast? What is it?
