Veganuary is here! Resources & BREAKFAST...Loaded Savoury Oatmeal

    I don't know about you, but starting a new year always gives me a fresh infusion of energy! Time to clean the freezer out, find some new inspiration in the kitchen, and get back on track with healthier food choices after the holidays. And since it's VEGANUARY I have decided to do a series of videos on my YouTube Channel about transitioning to a healthier whole foods plant-based diet.

    But before we get into that, I want to tell you about a video I published this week about my GO-TO resources for healthy plant-based eating and living. This is by no means a complete list - there are SO MANY great resources out there, but these are some of my favourites, and I talk about why in Episode 23.

    Watch it here.

    And TODAY I am publishing a second video, the FIRST in the Veganuary Series. In this series I am going to be sharing:

    • Transition approaches and strategies
    • Pitfalls to avoid
    • Thoughts on how to make the change not just easier, but fun and enjoyable too
    • Recipes!
    • Inspiration!
    • And more tools
    • I'll also be addressing some of the questions that have been coming in from viewers in the past few weeks.

    I'm kicking it all off today with Episode 24, where I'm talking about plant-based breakfast ideas, making savoury oatmeal. 

    You can watch Episode 24 here.

    I also offer

    • how to make healthy breakfasts quick
    • links to recipes you can try out
    • thoughts on why breakfast is such an important meal of the day & how your body uses it to fuel your daily activity (with links to more info on that too!)

    Here's the recipe:

    Loaded Savory Oats (Inspired by Oh She Glows)
    Serves 2

    • 1/3 cup rolled oats*
    • 1/4 cup red lentils
    • 1 3/4 cups vegetable stock
    • 1/4 small onion, minced
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1/8 tsp powdered turmeric
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
    • 1/2 tsp minced fresh rosemary (or leave it whole and remove before eating)

    *You can use steel cut oats or quinoa instead if you like -- you'll just have to cook them a bit longer.

    Add all ingredients to a small pot, bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer about 8 minutes, until the consistency is to your liking.

    Top with your choice of:

    • Shredded purple cabbage or sauerkraut
    • Shredded carrots/beets and/or sliced cucumbers
    • Avocado or hummus
    • Cherry tomatoes or fresh peppers
    • Salsa

    Load with toppings of your choice and enjoy!
