Oatmeal: my favorite breakfast

I know some people feel its pretty nasty consistency, but really oatmeal is a very good source of protein, fiber, full of antioxidants, lowers cholesterol, boosts your immune system, stabilizes your blood sugar, adds in preventing arteries from hardening and reduces the risk of high blood pressure. Really can it be that bad? No. 6grams of protein for every 1/2 cup to boot.

Sure, I have these oats in a bowl, mixed with water and your favorite milk--normally I go with Almond milk. Looks like snot in a bowl right? After a while it does get boring. I try to change it up every few days what I put in it. It ranges from nuts, different fruits, dried fruits, different spices and flax seeds to name a few. I was prepping my breakfast for tomorrow and I went with this combo: Honey,cinnamon, cranberries, almonds, granola and flax seeds. Get creative. Stay clean. Keep it fun. And stay on the wagon!
