Balance out a traditional favorite! Healthy fats, protein, antioxidants, and fiber from the nuts and berries make oatmeal a balanced choice for anytime of day. Here’s a simply prepared and delicious recipe…
Go for steel cut oats here. They are less processed and will have a delayed effect on blood sugar. The extra few minutes of prep time are worth it. Instant oats are not recommended, they are the most processed and usually have added sugar and chemicals.
-Boil 2/3 cup of water, add 1/3 cup of oats. Cook for 10-15 minutes then add to a bowl (follow the directions on the bag of steel cut oats you buy, as cooking time can vary)
-Add crushed walnuts (or any nut of your choice) and a shake of cinnamon
-Top with some blueberries and/or raisins
-Feel free to add some coconut or almond milk to the bowl to make things a little more creamy. Enjoy!
