I can never grow tired of this healthy and filling breakfast. Most days of the week, I try to indulge in a warm dish of whole grains in the form of oatmeal. I prefer the old-fashioned version because it has a little ‘bite’ to it.
Oatmeal is still relatively inexpensive and easy to cook. Moreover, I love that it’s a great source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. And, based on the nutritional facts, its excellent for lowering the glucose and cholesterol levels in the body.
Earlier on this morning, it was no exception. I cooked up the hearty grains in some milk. I made sure to add a dash of vanilla and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon for added flavors. Under low heat, oatmeal came to desired consistency. Then, it was sweetened with a teaspoon of brown sugar.
Oatmeal was topped with the antioxidant and fiber foods of fresh and colorful strawberries and blueberries.
