I always cook rolled oats with (lactose-free, low-fat) milk. Oatmeal cooked on water doesn’t have that yummy thickness. Who wants breakfast that is only so-so?? Not me, for sure! It’s important for breakfast to be wonderful, to give your day a wonderful start!
Today’s oatmeal is with roughly chopped almonds…
Besides having a fantastic CRUNCH, almonds have healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, protein and various important nutrients.
Then I added my favorite… Blueberries. Blueberries are sweet and nutritious, low in calories and extremely good for you. What’s not to love about them???
And this is a perfect example of how I give myself a great morning boost and am ready to take on whatever comes my way!!
