Oatmeal Bowl with Beets
Beet Breakfast Bowls
I’ve been adding more oats to my diet lately . I make sure they’re certified gluten free so that I can tolerate them. They are a great source of fiber and protein, which is always good for me!
I usually don’t eat a fancy breakfast, at least not on weekday mornings. Who’s got the time? But I miss something comforting in the mornings – foods like those I used to eat before starting a real food diet.
How Beets Help
Beet oatmeal can help with weight loss because it contains high levels of nitrates, which increase metabolism. It also has lots of antioxidants, including betalains, which have anti-inflammatory properties.
Beets also have probiotics that can help with digestion and support gut health.
That’s what I like about an oatmeal bowl with beets. It’s good for you and your circulation — and it’s quick to fix.
Beet Breakfast Bowls come together in under 10 mins and make a healthy and easy gluten free and vegetarian breakfast – great for meal prep or on-the-go!
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 large spoonful vegan collagen powder (optional)

1 tbsp chia or flax seeds
1/8 tsp cardamom powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup almond milk
Heat the stove and cook to a desired consistency. Once cooked, you can top it with sliced banana, grain-free granola, strawberry chia jam (just add chia seeds to organic strawberry jam and let it soak for at least twenty minutes), and an optional topping of maple syrup mixed with extra beet powder!
