Top 5 Reasons to eat Oatmeal: The Truth About Oatmeal
This is my morning breakfast!
Not all oatmeal is created equal. When chosing oatmeal, be sure to read the ingredients on the box. My personal favorite and top oatmeal recommendation is Nature's Path Organic Oatmeal, No Sugar Added. Its just a purrganic blend of oats and sea salt... no extra additives and preservatives that we don't need. for breakfast, I simply add hot water (you can add warm milk to make more creamy), raisins (occasionally walnuts) and cinnamon. It's very filling and very good for you too!
