Today you will learn about a way to Supercharge plain oatmeal into a real Breakfast hero! Start with plain rolled oats and prepare according to package directions (typically 1/2 cup of oats to 3/4 cup of water).

Now for the supercharge part. Stir in 1/2 tsp of curry powder. Giving the oats a savory flavor profile will not only help cut down your sugar cravings, but turmeric, the main spice in curry powder, also has anti-inflamatory properties. Next stir in some unsweetened shredded coconut. This healthy medium chain fat will help slow down the absorption rate of the oats. Also add extra fiber by opening up 2-3 Psyllium husk capsules and sprinkling them into the cooking oats.

At serving time, Stir in some honey (a sweetener that will not spike blood sugar) for it’s numerous health benefits, a bit more shredded coconut, and for crunch and a super extra fiber boost, some Uncle Sam bran flakes (pictured below).

There you have it. Fast, easy, supercharged oatmeal. Enjoy!
