Ever had a fresh fruit oatmeal? Its so much better than the store bought one that comes in a box with all types of preservatives. Much healthier and far more tasty. Did you know that oatmeal helps reduce cholesterol, reduces high blood pressure and is full of antioxidants? Those are a few of the many great qualities of oatmeal.
I put oatmeal in my protein shakes, in making my desserts , oatmeal raisin cookies etc. Love all types of fruits in my oatmeal.
Make the oatmeal as directed on the oatmeal jar. By simply putting in about 1 cup milk and 1/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal in a pot and cooking in on low medium heat for about 6 minutes or until it thickens and oatmeal is soft. Then I add in my sugar and whatever flavors I want.
I've done it before with cinnamon sticks inside the oatmeal and allowing it to cook together with the oatmeal to let off a small cinnamon flavor, done it with sprinkling ground cinnamon on top once the oatmeal is done for a slightly stronger cinnamon taste. I've also done my oatmeal with all sorts of fresh sliced fruits and throwing it inside whilst its cooking. Fruits like fresh cut strawberries, blueberry oatmeal ( Imagine how much antioxidants this bad boy has.... two of foods most high in antioxidants combined) also done it as pictured above where I cooked the oatmeal normally and then shredded an entire apple and threw it inside once cooked...
Super delicious the apples give it a natural sweetness and has a little crunch to it. Another way you can enjoy your oatmeal is by adding a tsp of chopped pecans or walnuts to the oatmeal after being cooked.
As you can see there are many ways to enjoy your oatmeal. If something is healthy for you. Why not find a way to love it. After all its these kinds of things that prolong your healthy living.
Heres a picture of my beautiful mother... Sorry mom but gotta share your age with the world. She is 52 years old and look how phenomenal she looks. Amazing... Everywhere I go people ask her if she's my sister. One of the many reasons she looks this good at her age is because of her healthy eating. If you want to live long and remain beautiful as you grow older. Healthy eating is definitely the way.
