We should also consider the rights and responsibilities of the Human Race in what we eat and how we live.

Since we are all different, I accept that no one thinks the same as anyone else, and that is fine. Some things are just "important" ...

So here we go ... here are some of my favorite ideas and findings that I hope will be interesting and helpful or even inspirational, for you as well.

Caramelized Apple Hazelnut Oatmeal Recipe with Organic Whey Protein

apple hazelnut oatmeal

Looking for a tasty recipe that's a great alternative to instant oatmeal? Try these nutritious and yummy whole rolled oats, which cook up in just a few minutes. The addition of organic whey adds a protein and nutritional boost. I prefer using The Organic Whey protein powder because it is certified organic and comes from one source: Organic Valley Farmers; and contains just one ingredient: organic whey. Additionally, there are no artificial sweeteners, flavorings, additives, preservatives or other yucky unwanted ingredients and comes with a nice creamy flavor. You can make this recipe in large batches on the weekend or in the morning. If you are in need of a super quick breakfast, you can skip the apples (but they add a delicious naturally sweet flavor!).

Serves: 2

½ tablespoon of coconut oil
1 apple cut into ¼ cubes (I leave the skin on)
¼ cup hazelnuts roughly chopped
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups of your favorite organic milk like coconut, almond, soy or traditional organic milk or water
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons of flax seeds
2-3 tablespoons of The Organic Whey (follow package’s serving suggestions)

Heat a heavy medium sauce pan over medium heat and add coconut oil. Add chopped apples and sauté 6-7 minutes until soft.  Add hazelnuts and sauté 2-3 more minutes until toasted. Add 2 cups of rolled oats, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and flax seeds. Bring to a simmer and simmer 2-5 minutes until oatmeal reaches desired thickness and remove from heat to cool.

If eating right away and oatmeal is hot, spoon into bowl, add a little milk or water and stir to cool. Add manufacturer’s suggested serving of whey to oatmeal, stir to combine and enjoy.

Note: you don’t want to add organic whey to overly hot oatmeal, it may cause it to lump or sour.
