Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day because it gives you the energy to start your day off strong! If you want to stay strong and on-track all the way until lunch time, you need a healthy breakfast filled with protein and tons of vitamins.
We love our steel cut oats with a hint of salt and butter for breakfast, but what makes it even better is a lightly poached egg with just a sprinkle of freshly grated cheddar cheese.
Eating plenty of fiber is important to our diets and our health. One serving of Steel Cut Oats provides 4 grams of fiber and will keep your blood sugar levels at an even keel for hours. Steel cut oats also has iron which makes it a great choice for vegetarians.
We love Bob’s Red Mill Organic Steel Cut Oats and they are simple to prepare:
How to prepare steel cut oats –

How to Make Oatmeal with Poached Eggs
Start with 100% whole grain organic oats like our favorite – Bob’s Red Mill Oats, Steel Cut. Cook the oats according to package directions which should take about 16-18 minutes. Don’t forget to add a little salt to the water.
Start cooking your poached eggs when the oatmeal is about half-way done cooking. Poach the eggs medium so the yolks are a little bit runny. You can read more about how we LOVE to poach our eggs and the pan we use to poach them in every morning.

When the oatmeal has finished cooking, spoon it into a dish and top it with one or two poached eggs. Grate your cheddar cheese on top and let it melt for a couple of seconds. Add a couple slivers of butter and a pinch of salt and pepper to the top of the eggs.
YUM – Dig in to that healthy and delicious breakfast!
