For many of us, oatmeal is a go-to when it comes to quick and healthy breakfast options. This recipe reimagines the classic oatmeal for Whole30 and paleo diets, and is also vegan and gluten-free. With a powerhouse list of ingredients from flaxseed and chia to almond flour and nuts, you'll enjoy a filling breakfast that won't spike your sugar levels leaving you starving before lunchtime. Add your favorite garnishes—dried fruit and coconut are both excellent, as well as a sprinkling of chia seeds.
