Fall Parfait: Quick Oatmeal With Blueberries

Yes to fall and all the yummy, heartwarming and comforting food!
I don’t know about you but my body has this kind of calibration system that’s pretty spot on and as soon as the season shifts it starts telling me what it prefers to have or not to have.
It’s truly fascinating how intelligent the human body is, don’t you agree?
When the cooler season (Yes I live in California now but I still get really cold…) begins my body craves warmer food and drinks and more cooked food and I’ve learned to listen.
So this morning nothing felt better than making myself a nice bowl of good old oatmeal, it’s delicious, heartwarming and ready in 5 min!
Fun fact: I only learned about Oatmeal in my 20s… 

1/ 2 cup Gluten free quick cooking rolled oats (If you have access to bulk shopping that would be the best choice, if not “Bob’s Red Mill quick cooking rolled oats’ are really good. It’s Gluten free and organic)
1 cup Water 
Pinch of Salt 
½ Teaspoon Cinnamon ground 
¼ cup Blueberries
1 Tablespoon Unsweetened shredded Coconut (If you have access to bulk shopping that would be the best choice, if not  “Let’s do Organic” is a great choice)
1 Tablespoon Maple syrup 

1- Bring water and salt to a boil
2- Add Quick cooking rolled Oats and Cinnamon and stir
3- Lower the heat to medium-low and let it cook for 3 min, stirring occasionally 
4- Remove from heat, serve it in a bowl and let it sit for 1 min
5- Top it with Blueberries, shredded Coconut and Maple syrup 
Bon Appétit!
