Chai Peach Oatmeal

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. I love intermixing both sweet and savory breakfasts into my daily breakfasts.  My weekly breakfasts must be healthy, easily thrown together, and keep me full until lunchtime. I love constantly changing out my breakfasts, to keep things from getting too dull, but I've been eating this particular breakfast for almost 2 weeks straight-- it's that good.

Chai Peach Oatmeal. It's absolutely delicious. Made with steel cut oats, and cooked with equal parts chai tea and milk, topped with frozen peaches and a drizzle of maple syrup. It's absolutely phenomenal and a huge portion of food and still low calorie (which I LOVE). 

Chai Peach Oatmeal

(recipe adapted slightly from Fitness Magazine)

Steep 1 chai tea bag in 1/2 cup of boiling water for 3 minutes. Combine the tea with 1/2 cup low-fat milk and 1/2 cup quick-cooking steel cut oats in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes (Keep checking on it, I've caused quite the mess by letting it boil over and explode out of the bowl). Stir, top with a few shakes of cinnamon, thawed peaches and a drizzle of 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup.

*Total breakfast is about 280 calories

Tomorrow I'll share with you my alternatively savory breakfast- which has been on constant rotation with this one and equally as habit-forming.
