  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp chopped peanuts
  • Optional: 1 soft boiled or fried egg

2. While oatmeal is cooking, sauté spinach in oil in a small pan on medium heat. If pressed for time, you can steam the spinach in the microwave.

  • If you don’t have an Asian seasoning blend, you can create a simple seasoning with powdered ginger, garlic, sesame seeds, etc.

  • You can substitute sunflower seed butter & sunflower seeds for the peanut butter & chopped peanuts.
