Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I would be lying if I said the last thought before I go to bed isn’t, what I am going to make for breakfast.  I find a lot of people struggle with variety when it comes to breakfast.

Our bodies require a wide variety of nutrients, so if we are eating the same thing over and over again we are not taking advantage of all the great foods out there.  Although you may have staples like eggs, oatmeal, smoothies etc. it’s important to switch up the ingredients. Your body will thank you! 

I love peanut butter and jam sandwiches.. I mean who doesn’t really? But I am not a huge fan of peanut butter from a health perspective because it is typically very highly processed and filled with sugar and hydrogenated oil. Jam is also typically loaded with sugar and unnecessary ingredients which just doesn’t fit into my whole foods regime.  Luckily there are replacements like cashew butter and fresh or frozen berries. 

I love oatmeal and am constantly playing around with the toppings to make it new and exciting.

Here is my recipe for PB and J oatmeal (Minus the PB and J)

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup almond, cashew or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (strawberry or raspberries)
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened cashew butter
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds 
  • 1 tsp. pure maple syrup for topping

top with a little milk to make creamier, and 1/2 banana (sliced)


In a small saucepan heat oatmeal, milk and frozen berries. Bring to a boil and then cover and let simmer for 10 minutes (or 30 minutes if steel cut) . Top with cashew butter, chia. milk, maple syrup and banana if desired.
