At breakfast time, Protein is bae for my family. Essentially, we eat 3 things for breakfast in rotation – Eggs, Protein Pancakes & Oats : )

Naturally it’s very important for me to invent new recipes around these 3 to keep it interesting and healthy! So, here I am sharing the latest and brightest oatmeal from my breakfast-innovation brain. Not just that in this recipe I am taking the healthy-ness to next level, venturing into the power of healing turmeric.

This oats recipe is referenced from the Indian recipe turmeric milk, traditionally used for healing fresh wounds or ailing body aches. This bright yellow breakfast bowl looks like sunshine early morning and lights you up for the day literally.

My dear, breakfast loving brigade, this recipe is totally “healthy checked” and “quick-cooking certified”! Still thinking what’s unique? Let me speedy spell again?

This oatmeal is….
Cooked with the good Indian grease “Ghee”
Simmered with s pinch of “turmeric” for hailing and healing
Naturally sweetened with coconut for some creamy comfort
Simply delicious whether you cook it sweet or salty
And guess what?
You can also attract your little baby to this colorful bowl of goodness!

Happy breakfast! Yellow yellow isn’t a dirty fellow.
