Take Your Lumps | Oatmeal IdeasPosted on June 5, 2017
Finding the right breakfast foods can be extremely challenging. According to a recent online ABC news story as Americans become more health-conscious oatmeal is taken front and center as one of the breakfast foods choice. But, the reality is oatmeal every morning can become boring rather quickly. The recent ABC news story gave some new ideas to old-fashioned oatmeal. Most of us already know about berries and almonds but the news story challenges us to get more creative with fruit and nut choices. One of the suggestions pomegranate arils and pistachios found quite interesting. It claims to be a nice combo slightly sweet and made nutty when adding almond milk. Try substituting nuts with nut butter. Any kind of nut butter with crisp sweet fruit for instance a pair can be tasty with a splash of any milk alternative including soy or almond milk. Banana and walnuts are also an excellent addition for hot oatmeal. Think banana bread in a bowl. For an added sweet flavor try vanilla extract. One added suggestion as a standby was to take two parts oatmeal, one part low-fat yogurt, and one part juice stirring until creamy. Placing it in the refrigerator overnight, gives you a thick, cool, creamy and tangy oat treat that you can either eat cool from the refrigerator or warm up to fit your taste. One suggestion from a health Magazine included crumbled piece of turkey bacon, low-fat cheddar cheese, and scallions sprinkled on top. The bottom line is that you will get plenty of protein, fiber, healthy fat, and just the right amount of carbohydrates.
