Basic Vanilla N’Oatmeal [Grain Free] + Flavor Ideas

Basic Vanilla N'Oatmeal [Grain Free] + Flavor Ideas

For a while now, I’ve been having significant stomach issues after eating meals – bloating, pain and cramps to name a few. I’ve started to really look at what foods I’m eating that may be causing these issues, and my symptoms seem to flare the most after eating meals high in grains, carbs, and sugars. I’ve researched a lower carb diet that is high in healthy fats and animal proteins, and after seeing the positive results of people in a similar situation to me, I have started transitioning into this type of eating.

I have to say, even after only 5 days eating grain free, low carb/sugar and high fat/protein, my stomach issues have all but disappeared. While my body transitioned into using healthy fats for fuel over carbs, my energy levels dropped slightly during the first couple days, but now, after about 5 days eating this way, I feel energetic and focused, I have no cravings for sugar and carb laden foods, and my body seems much more able to digest the foods I’m eating.

If this way of eating sounds like something that might benefit you, I would HIGHLY suggest that you read the book Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter. DO NOT jump into a grain free, high (healthy) fat and protein diet without first researching how to do it properly, what supplements you might need to add, etc. All I know is, I feel fabulous and I will definitely be keeping up a grain free, high fat diet!

So, one of my biggest dilemmas was how to make my beloved porridge without some type of grain. There is nothing like a big, comforting bowl of porridge on a cold morning. After researching, you might be wondering how I made grain free “oatmeal”…… There is a secret ingredient that you might scoff at at first, but don’t knock it till you try it! I made this deeeeelicious bowl of “oats” with riced cauliflower!

This breakfast is rich, creamy, filled with fiber and healthy fats that will keep you full for hours!

Serves 1
Grain Free, Gluten Free

You will need:

1 cup (packed) riced cauliflower
1/3 cup full fat coconut milk
2/3 cup water
2 eggs, whisked
2 tbsp golden milled flax meal
1 tsp vanilla extract
sweetener to taste (I used about 20 drops liquid Stevia)
optional add-ins like
unflavored egg white protein powder
maca powder
toppings of choice
nuts/nut butter/seeds
coconut chips
cold coconut milk


You will first need to rice your cauliflower. Cut off a few large stems from the head, rinse them over cold water and pat dry. Place in your food processor and pulse a few times until you achieve a rice-like texture. Set aside.
Over medium heat, place the coconut milk, water, vanilla extract, sweetener and cauliflower in a medium sauce pan and bring to a low boil.
Let it simmer until the cauliflower softens, about 10-12 minutes.
Remove from the heat and pour in the eggs, stirring continuously and vigorously (very important) so the eggs don’t cook/curdle.
Lastly, stir in the flax meal and any other add-ins you want.
Transfer to a bowl and top with whatever you’d like!

I hope you enjoy this hearty bowl of porridge as much as I did!
