Warm Breakfast for Sensitive Tummies

I have some patients that when the wind doesn’t blow right (no pun intended!) it throws off their gut. During the Winter and early Spring months, if you are one of these people, give your stomach a little extra TLC and serve up some warm breakfast in the morning.

One of my favourite warm hearty breakfasts is steel cut oats. Imagine waking up to the smell of cinnamon and vanilla and shortly thereafter biting into a warm satisfying spoon of oats.

This breakfast is easy on most digestive systems and is chock full of good protein and fibre. For those of you preparing for pregnancy, cinnamon is my go to spice to warm the uterus.

I call this Dr. Almon’s Oatmeal (add the ‘d’ to make it nuttier!)

This one is going out to Monica!

Here’s the recipe for a warm breakfast for sensitive tummies: (good for 2 people)

  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
  • Frozen or fresh berries
  • Slivered almonds or cashew pieces
  • Coconut chips
  • Pure maple syrup

Bring water to a boil and add oats, cinnamon and vanilla. Turn down to low and cover checking and stirring every so often. Will be done in approximately 10-15 minutes.

Place oats into bowls and add to each bowl approximately 2-3 tbsp frozen or fresh berries in one corner, nuts in another corner and a few coconut chips on top.

Drizzle 1-2 tsp maple syrup on top and add protein boosters:

Protein boosters to add at the end of the oatmeal
* 1 tbsp organic peanut butter or sunflower butter to each bowl
*  1-2 tbsp hemp seeds
