Creamy Turmeric, Ginger, and Coconut Oats

By Rebecca Powell, HCTP September 2016

Super creamy and colorful turmeric ginger oats topped with coconut yogurt is the perfect balance of healthy fats. This one is topped with fruit and bee pollen – an antioxidant-rich and inflammation-busting breakfast addition, which also looks pretty and tastes great! Add grated zucchini or cauliflower to the oats for fiber and satiety (you won’t even taste it)!
