I love my eggs…I eat a 2-egg omelet loaded with veggies everyday for breakfast. Nothing else keeps me as full and satisfied till lunchtime. But as the colder weather sets in, its nice to have a warm bowl of “oatmeal”. This is basically a nut base so it makes a dense porridge; be mindful of your portion. Feel free to substitute fruit and nuts to your liking. I store portioned servings in ball jars topped with extra coconut milk for eating-on-the-go.
