I love breakfast. I want to take Breakfast to the skating rink and buy it a promise ring from the gift shop. Then I want to take my parents’ car and drive slowly by Breakfast’s house over and over.
Most days I eat two breakfasts. That’s because I generally wake up feeling like I’m going to starve to death. This morning I decided to try something new: savory oats. I know, I know, the whole thing just seems wrong. But if it keeps me full for 4+ hours, it’s oh-so-right.
The 4 Hour, 400 calorie breakfast: Savory oats for one, inspired by Womens Health Magazine
-1/2 c rolled oats
-1 cup loosely packed spinach
-1/8 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1/4 of an avocado
salt & pepper
Let’s do this:
Add the oats and one cup of water to a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until water is absorbed and oats reach desired consistency. Reduce heat, add in spinach and stir for a few seconds until spinach wilts. Remove from heat.
Get a small frying pan hot and coat with cooking spray, then crack your egg into the pan. I flipped my egg because I’m not one for runny yolks, but I think I’m alone in this. So cook the egg to your desired done-ness.
Add the oats to a bowl or plate, top with shredded cheese, sliced avocado, and the egg. Top with salt and pepper, and hot sauce if you like!
Now I’m going to go write a note to Breakfast that I can pass it during homeroom, asking it to check a box if it likes me. Or maybe I should just text Breakfast?
Here’s the stats on this breakfast (note I cooked my oats in water, but if you cook yours in milk the calories will be a bit higher):
