Super Easy Vegan Choc-Maca Oatmeal
It is getting super cold here in Boston and my oatmeal breakfast is making a come back. Is like i forgot about it during summer because I swapped with smoothie bowls and so on, but now that it's colder I'm craving some warm oats.
A couple years ago, i would eat oatmeal all year round and loved it. Oatmeal it is the easiest breakfast to meal prep, or prep under 5 minutes. I swear, anyone can do it.
It is also the the easiest meal to fit on my macros. I'm currently increasing my calorie intake and carbohydrates, and oh boy it is hard! I used to think that how hard would it be, you just eat more. But i swear I can pop anytime soon. Anyway, we will speak about my macros experience another day.
This oatmeal mix it is super yummy and simple, but it also has great antioxidant and energy boos benefits from the cacao and maca powder.
