39 Cardamom Oats


Steel-cut oats are dense and more filling than instant oats and carry a lower glycemic load to help regulate blood sugar. I chose strawberries for this breakfast because strawberry polyphenols were found to inhibit breast cancer tumors in lab studies and induce apoptosis in breast cancer cells.

3 cups filtered water

1 cup steel-cut oats

1 cup fresh strawberries

1 cup almond milk

1/4 cup toasted hulled hemp seed

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon cinnamon


Nuts or seeds


In a saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil over high heat. Add the steel-cut oats and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how chewy or soft you like your cereal. Serve with strawberries and top with any or all of the rest of the ingredients.
