For June, Code Boyfriend and I are going to be eating clean for our 30 day challenge. That means no white sugar, no white flour, and no processed foods.
…While we are in the middle of a move. We’ve had smarter ideas. Try finding something without sugar or flour in it in a fast food place. It’s really hard.
The first thing we did once we moved into the temporary apartment was stock it with meats, fruit, veggies, and whole grains.
For breakfasts, I was planning to have oatmeal. I had left of my spices in Rochester. We only took what would fit in the car, and those didn’t make the cut.
So I bought cinnamon. But that was it in the sweet spice department.
I also knew I had a long day of moving in ahead of me and wanted to make something with a little more protein.
French Toast Oatmeal was born. Now, I doubt I’m the first person to come up with this, but at 6:15, I thought it was a stroke of sheer genius.
The texture is amazing, custard-y and soft. And it kept me full through lunch.
French Toast Oatmeal (Serves 1)
- 1 Egg
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar (sweeten it however you like, this made it sweet enough for me, but I wish I had maple syrup)
- 1/4 Cup of Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats
- 3/4 Cup of Milk (We had skim and it worked great!)
Combine all of the ingredients in a pot. Whisk to ensure the egg is throughout incorporated before you turn on the heat. This helps keep this from being scrambled eggs in oatmeal, which really doesn’t sound as good.
