Almond blueberry oatmeal

img_7356There’s something about having oatmeal in the morning that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s healthy, filling and tastes good with any number of various toppings.

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!!
