It was quite a heart healthy kind of morning for yours truly. Already my heart was skipping and in a joyful mood from my morning workout. Thus, I wanted to keep same going. With endorphins kicking, I made my way to my kitchenette poured some old-fashioned oatmeal in a small stockpot along with some whole milk. To that I added a generous sprinkle of cinnamon, a few raisins for added fiber, and a splash of vanilla.

I love oatmeal because it keeps me satiated for hours. Moreover, based on studies, this whole grain is excellent for good heart health. In addition, a sprinkle of cinnamon is ideal to keep my blood sugar balance. With these health reasons in mind I simmered oatmeal on low heat until it came to the right consistency I needed. This was then sweetened with a teaspoon of dark sugar bearing in mind that the raisins also provided added sugar.

I further gained more heart health by topping with a sprinkle of powdered flax seeds. Also, I added  toppings of blue berries and strawberries. To say that I was happy is an understatement; I was over the moon.
