I need my breakfast. Absolutely need it. Without my morning meal, I’m listless and unthinkably slow – both on my feet and in reflection.
Fortunately, this oatmeal hits the spot. The regular oats can be a bit worn and thin. Not as sustaining as I might need. The steel-cut variety, available in any grocery store, comes packed with whole grains and plenty of sustainability, perfect for a long morning of meetings.
Top with chopped pistachios for perfect presentation and a little extra crunch!

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Seeds of two cardamom pods, crushed and ground
