A perfect blood sugar, hormone and mood balancing storm with this morning oatmeal recipe! Oatmeal is a great way to start your day and with the right ingredients will keep your metabolism humming and give you fuel for your day ahead. The key is ensuring that your bowl contains enough protein and good fat. Hemp seed is one of the highest protein-containing plant based foods with 1/4 cup giving you a whopping 15 grams of protein and 15 grams of fat. They are an awesome source of essential fatty acids, giving you both omega 6 and plant derived omega 3.
