Oatmeal, Turmeric Milk and Chia Seeds
This is my favorite breakfast at the moment! It’s easy to make, delicious and nutritious and by adding turmeric, you get a super nutrient boost. However, it’s important that turmeric is eaten with a good fat like a dairy or nut milk and a sprinkle of fresh black pepper for the body to absorb its healing qualities.

½ cup of rolled oats, cooked in 1 cup of water

and if you wish, add
½ cup fruit, bananas, fresh figs prunes or persimmons or berries (don’t mix the sweet fruits with the sub acid fruits: berries)
1. While the oats are cooking, in another small pot, warm 1 cup of milk, or nut milk with 1 teaspoon of fresh or ground turmeric. Add a sprinkle of fresh ground black pepper and a sprinkle of cinnamon and stir. Don’t let it boil. The unused portion keeps well in a glass jar, ready to use.
2. Create a small well in the top of the cooked oatmeal and add a tablespoon of turmeric milk, sprinkling the chia seeds in it. The chia seeds will plump up in the turmeric milk.
3. Add fruit and chopped nuts. Enjoy!
