DR ALIBHAI’S HEALTHY EATING OUTLINE

Breakfast:

Steel cut oatmeal or quick oats. Add cinnamon, almonds, berries and 2 drops of Stevia or 1 tsp of pure maple syrup to sweeten.

Easy Oatmeal Recipe:
1 cup quick rolled oats (Gluten free is best)
Just enough hot water to cover oatmeal
Pinch of cinnamon
2 drops Stevia or 1 tsp pure maple syrup to sweeten
Blueberries
Raw slivered almonds
Optional 1 scoop or 1 Tablespoon Protein Powder

Place oats in a bowl and add enough hot water to cover the oats. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add all of the other ingredients. Enjoy this quick and nutritious breakfast.

Thick rolled oats are better than quick oats, but many people do not have time to cook oats in the morning. This is why I have suggested quick oats for those of you rushed for time in the morning.

Mid-morning snack:

1 or 2 soft boiled eggs OR
Protein smoothie with:
clean protein powder,
nut milk or coconut water,
frozen berries or avocado,
Omega 3-6-9 essential oils (Such as Udo’s Brand oil)
