Heart Healthy Breakfast & Berries

Hello Everyone! I am so excited for this recipe. In honor of February being “Heart Health” month I decided to share an incredibly easy and delicious breakfast I have been having on repeat lately that incorporates so many different ingredients that all promote not only a healthy heart, but an overall healthy body! All the ingredients I use came in my Green Bin and I absolutely am in love with the growing selection of bulk items, as well as non-produce items available to add to my orders! I chose each ingredient purposefully for its health benefits as listed below:

Rolled Oats: Source of fiber and healthy carbohydrates to keep you full and energized. Oats have also been shown in several studies to lower cholesterol when eaten regularly.

Flaxseed Meal: Source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects.

Chia Seeds: Source of essential minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. These nutrients help you prevent hypertension and maintain a healthy weight, and are important for energy metabolism and a part of DNA synthesis.

Cinnamon: Contains antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties which have been linked to help lower high blood pressure overall a lower risk of heart disease.

Blueberries: High fiber, and contain potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and phytonutrient content that supports heart health. Fiber in general can help to reduce the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease.

Pecans: Among many other benefits, Pecans contain monounsaturated fats such as oleic acid along with phenolic antioxidants which help reduce the risk of heart disease.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and are inspired to try it for yourself! If you do, share a pic and be sure to tag both @greenbeandelivery and myself @edamamemonster … XO


In a mason jar or small bowl, add rolled oats, chia seeds, flaxseed meal, cinnamon, and your liquid and whisk with a fork to combine.

  1. Cover securely with a lid and set in the refrigerator overnight, or a few hours. I will often make it the night before a busy day, or even make a jar in the morning and have as a easy afternoon snack!
  2. Once the oatmeal base is set and you are ready to prepare it there is really no bad way to eat it. I enjoy it cold straight out of the jar, or if I have some extra time I will put it in a bowl and heat it up and make it a little more aesthetically pleasing!

** Note: overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, though I find them best within the first 12-24 hours.
