Time to break ground on those New Year's resolutions! One of our goals this year (and every year) is to eat a better, more nutritious breakfast. While the weather is still chilly, we have our sights set on big, hearty bowls of oatmeal—particularly blends containing superfoods, like energy-enhancing quinoa, fiber-rich flaxseed, and protein-packed almonds. Below, three delicious oatmeals to help you begin 2016 on the right foot.
1. Purely Elizabeth’s Ancient Grain Oatmeal
These gluten-free oats contain ingredients like chia, quinoa, and amaranth, a seed that produces almost as much protein as animal-based options, like cheese. Prepare one of the Purely Elizabeth blends with almond milk and a sprinkle of organic coconut sugar.

2. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal Cup
Eating breakfast on the go could not be easier with these individual, protein-packed cups. Add a dash of brown sugar and a handful of slivered almonds to this flax and chia seed blend.

3. Mad Hectic Oatmeal
The inclusion of whey protein and nuts in Mad Hectic’s Strawberry Pecan blend means this bowl of oats will keep you satisfied until lunchtime. Freeze-dried berries offer a hint of tartness, and the sesame seeds provide an unexpectedly delicious flavor. Sprinkle with some cinnamon and dig in!
