Are you ready to spice up those oatmeal bowls? Here we go!


1. Vegetarian Oatmeal


  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1.5 cups of whole milk
  • ¼ cup of organic red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of organic chives, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 2 large organic eggs (optional)
