Sometimes when you wake up hungover you just need two breakfasts, and since of course my #1 is always bacon, eggs and avo, my second is usually this oatmeal. And I promise there is actually oatmeal underneath it all (cue: No Doubt circa 2001), but I like to cover my grey colored mush with other things to make it look a little more appetizing.
- 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Coconut oil (optional)
- Plain or greek whole fat yogurt
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
Over medium heat bring the water to a boil in a small pot, pour in the oats, and lower to a simmer. I like to add a small spoonful of coconut oil as well for some flavor and to keep the oatmeal from sticking. Add the chia seeds to the oats and stir occasionally until the water cooks out. Pour the oatmeal into your most photogenic bowl and painstakingly attempt to arrange the fruit, yogurt, and pecans in an aesthetically pleasing way, or say fuck it and just plop it all on there. Sprinkle a few more chia seeds on top, drizzle some honey to taste and consume.
