Yup, the first time I tried savory oats, I pretty much thought I had died and gone to foodie heaven. Where has this dish been all my life? Oh right, I remember, I thought it was weird and to have savory oats. I turned up my nose to this awesome dish, what was I thinking?! Well, I am so happy I made this healthy savory oatmeal because this may just be a better way to have oats, yup I said it.
Surely, I have overdone overnight oats by having them nearly every day for a solid six months. But that is how I get when I like something, completely obsessive and psycho. Also, they are so easy to prepare and when I am running out the door in the morning, they make a perfect grab-n-go. But, I would make the argument that although this healthy savory oatmeal may take a bit longer to make, you can still totally do it in the morning in about 10 minutes. In fact, I think its nice to have this as a proper sit down meal before running out the door. Or save it for weekends if that is more your thing. Either way, just make it!
Summer: Where’d You Go?!
With summer winding down, I am all about embracing the new season. Fall is a perfect time for renewal and growth in my opinion. The breezy summer days and long nights are soon to be behind us. But we are entering the fall season and with that, we can look to see what is no longer serving us and change it.
Summer often times means a few too many glasses of rosé, maybe a little extra BBQ or any other vice. I am right there with you, I definitely felt it, especially after my two week vacation across London, Scotland and Ireland. But rather than jump on a juice cleanse or anything else, I switched up my routine. I changed the way I ate and got rid of things that no longer brought me so much joy, like drinking. Don’t get me wrong, I still partake in a glass of wine but, I definitely felt the need to cut back.

Healthy Savoury Oatmeal: Your New Breakfast BFF
- ½ cup rolled oats use gluten free if necessary
- 1 cup water
- 1 egg try and buy organic
- ¼ small red onion diced
- 2 slices of prosciutto chopped (optional, but recommended)
- Handful of arugula
- Small handful of cherry tomatoes chopped in half
- 1 tsp. ghee optional but recommended or use organic butter

Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small pot on the stove. Add in your oats and cook for about 5-10 minutes until cooked through. Add in the ghee and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and stir to combine. Remove from heat and put a lid on it until you are ready to eat.
In a pan, melt some coconut oil, add in your onion and sauté for about 5 minutes, until cooked and translucent. Add in your chopped prosciutto to the onion and stir, letting it cook for about 1 minute more, then add in your arugula and tomatoes until wilted and then remove and put on a plate.
Use the same pan and cook one egg with a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
Put the oatmeal in a bowl, top with the onion and prosciutto mix and a little extra cheese if you want. Place the egg on top with some parsley, sliced avocado, sea salt and pepper to taste.
