This is a go to recipe for our family. Oatmeal in the morning is a great way to start the day and will help you stay satiated for a lot longer than boxed cereal or other breakfast options. It can also be made the day before and heated up if time in the morning is limited. You can also add various nuts and seeds on the top for extra flavor and some healthy fats (walnuts, almonds, chia seeds, flax, flax meal, etc).
Many of my clients skip out on breakfast, but this meal is one of the most important meals for the day. It sets you up for a busy day and helps to curb late night, impulsive eating.
