Oats are actually really good for you, being full of minerals and protein. Besides the occasional nourishing infusions of oat straw, I’m trying to incorporate more oats into my diet. Steel-cut oats to be exact.

The recipe for 10-minute steel-cut oats keeps well in the fridge should give you a good breakfast base for the next several days. Simply scoop out a portion of oats into a bowl, mix in a splash of soy milk and re-heat in the microwave.
At this point you can let your imagination go wild: I set a handful of whole raw cashews and sliced almonds in the toaster oven while cutting up a nectarine from the fridge. Take the warmed bowl and top with the nuts and fruit, drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy.
