Breakfast shouldn’t be boring

 

I had oats and boiled eggs for breakfast but my oats was loaded with some healthy stuff giving it a kind of princely swag.

Let me show you how I made it.

First I added 3 cups of water to a cooking pot and placed on the cook top to boil.

Then I added two tablespoons of my premixed seeds comprising of chia, flax, sunflower seeds and cacao nibs.

I allowed this to boil for 5 minutes and I added 1 cup of oats which is enough for two.

 I stirred the oats and the existing seeds properly, then covered and left to cook for another 5 minutes.

I added 3 spoons of honey and stirred to mix properly.

I added 1/2 cup of blueberries and voila, breakfast was ready.

It was quite yummy.
