A Nice Way to Start the Day

oatmeal

I have found that oatmeal is a great way to start the day. It provides plenty of fiber, good carbs and protein and it really fills me up. Oatmeal is also a great way to lower your cholesterol.

Oatmeal is easy and fast to make and you can add whatever you’d like to make it the perfect breakfast for you. Here’s how I made my oatmeal this morning…

Servings: 1

Ingredients
½ cup organic oats (you can find these in the bulk food section of your grocery store)
1 cup water (or milk if you’d prefer)
Pinch of salt
Honey
Cinnamon
Handful of chopped walnuts
Handful of raisins
2 fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
¼ banana, thinly sliced

Instructions
Bring the water and pinch of salt to a boil
Stir in the oats, turn heat to medium and cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
Sprinkle with cinnamon, add honey, walnuts, raisins, strawberries and banana and mix well

Done and done. Enjoy this nice breakfast outside with a cup of coffee and enjoy the summer season!
