Vegan Mofo 2015: Day 1

Yay! Welcome to Vegan Mofo 2015!

This year's Vegan Mofo is a bit different. We have been given themes to write about each day. I kind of like that, as it can be seriously challenging to come up with new content for 30 days in a row. I'm excited to start off this year's Vegan Mofo with today's theme:

Rise and Shine! It's Mofo Time! Tell us about your breakfast. 

I'm pretty boring in that I eat the exact same breakfast every day. I've been eating this breakfast for years, and the only thing that really changes is the fresh (or frozen) fruit that I stick in there, which of course depends on the season. With the EXTREMELY RARE exception, my daily breakfast consists of:

1/3 c. dry oatmeal w/ hot water --> this becomes about 116 grams of cooked oatmeal
1 c. fruit (I like fresh fruit in the summer, and I'll go with frozen berries in the winter)
5 prunes (gotta get my fiber, y'all!)
1 T. hemp seeds (such a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids)
a sprinkling of cinnamon (probably about 1/2 t.)

That's it! Pretty exciting, I know, but overall, this breakfast is a very nutritious meal that keeps me going for at least a few hours until lunch. Here's the nutritional breakdown, according to Nutrition Data and/or the food package:

--Oats: 75 calories, 1 grams fat, 1 grams dietary fiber, 2 grams protein

--Blueberries: 84 calories, 0 grams fat, 4 grams dietary fiber, 1 gram protein, 36% DV vitamin K, 24% DV vitamin C, 25% DV manganese

--Prunes: 100 calories, 0 grams fat, 3 grams dietary fiber, 1 gram protein, 290 mg potassium

--Hemp seeds: 57 calories, 1 gram dietary fiber, 3 grams protein, 15% DV phosphorus, 15% DV magnesium, 37% DV manganese

--Cinnamon: 6 calories, 1 gram dietary fiber, 22% DV manganese

Overall nutritional facts:
FAT: 1 gram
