The perfect breakfast. Chuck Garcia, regular contributer to Your Health First, and lifelong pal of Dr. Joe Galati, shares his secret oatmeal recipe with Your Health First listeners..

Chuck's Perfect Oatmeal:
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup Steel Cut Oats
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1 scoop protein powder
1 tbsp wheat germ
2 tbsp flax seed
fruit (preferably fresh, as much as you want).  I am partial to berries and bananas but any will do.  If apples, add cinnamon or nutmeg.
Bring water and coconut oil to a boil.  Add oatmeal and stir over medium heat for 10 seconds.  Cover the oatmeal and shut off the heat.  Allow oatmeal to cook untouched for 30 minutes.
Uncover, over low to medium heat add:  Protein powder, wheat germ,flax seed, cinnamon (if desired).  Stir all ingredients and spoon into bowl.  Add fruit and nuts.  This will sustain your hunger for hours and suppress any desire to snack on man food until lunch, when you should eat God food again.
