Vegetable juice and Oatmeal: A healthy breakfast!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, no doubt.  How do you like the first meal of your day to be?  The answer varies from culture to culture.  However,  it is important to treat our bodies to healthy and hearty meals.  Remember, our body is our temple and through good food we can protect it.

I will give you today a very healthy breakfast, one for champions.

Vegetable juice

La bomba
  • 1 Small beet
  • 1/4 Cabbage
  • Bunch of watercress
  • Half a pear
  • 1 pealed lime 


Turn on your juicer and wait a couple of minutes so the blades can adjust.  Rinse your vegetables, then simply put them one by one through your juicer's mouth and voilà.

**I highly recommend that you invest in a juicer, in case you do not have one, there are good ones in the market today.  The reason for this recommendation is because when you juice your fruits and vegetables you are drinking pure vitamins, phytonutrients, which are necessary for sustaining human life. 

Oatmeal or how I like to call it "A bowl of goodness"

A bowl of goodness
  • 1/2 cup of whole grain oats -old fashioned-              
  • 1 cup of soy milk
  • 2 tsps of brown sugar-I use splenda-      
  • a pinch of salt- optional-
  • In a saucepan boil the soy milk with the salt and brown sugar
  • Stir in the whole grain oats
  • Cook about 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally 
  • Sprinkle cinnamon.

I hope you enjoy this breakfast for champions.  It was what my body was asking for today!

Buon appetito!
