Though it's about, oh, 100 degrees in New York today (I'm rocking the glistening face, freshly washed hair slicked back into a bun with limited make-up look), I'm sharing one of my favorite warm breakfasts.
Most days I simply don't have enough time to eat breakfast before running out of the house (and by don't have enough time, I mean I don't leave myself enough time, which could simply be rectified by waking up earlier).
Instead, I usually pack something up and eat when I arrive in the office. Though my ideal breakfast to reheat in the office is scrambled eggs with a side of fresh fruit, sometimes most of the time, I am running around and don't have time to cook up the eggs and take them to go.
On those days, I choose a close second - oatmeal to go!
I really love this oatmeal. I can throw it together in about 2 minutes, pack it up, heat in the office microwave and voila! A simple, filling and hearty breakfast. Ok so I'm not exactly making this on a 100 degree day like today, but on most other days this suits me just fine!
Cherry Almond Oatmeal To Go
1/2 C old fashioned oats
1 C almond milk or fat free milk (or milk of your choice!)
1/4 C dried cherries
2-3 Tbsp sliced almonds
1/4 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
sweetener, to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a microwave-safe plastic container.
To Go: I cover tightly and load it up into my lunchbox. When I arrive at the office, I remove the lid and microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 1 minute more.
To Stay: Pop right into the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for 1 minute more.
I adore the tart cherries mixed with a bit of cinnamon and love that the almonds add a bit of protein to keep me full for the morning hours.
So there you have it. A super simple, easy breakfast on the go. And as a bonus? The A-mazing aroma of cinnamon wafting through the office!
