Is oatmeal one of your breakfast staples? It is for me, too; and while I love a nice hot bowl of oatmeal, it can be quite boring and monotonous to eat it every day. It doesn’t have to be that way (monotonous).
While many days I may just drizzle a bit of honey and add some milk to my oatmeal; I really love adding chopped fresh fruits of all sorts to my oatmeal, then topping with a bit of cinnamon. I get one of my “fruit servings” for the day, along with the fiber from the oatmeal, and I am good to go for the morning!
Today, I chopped up an apple to add to my oatmeal. Now, I am usually get the apples chopped and into the oatmeal/water before I put it on the stove to cook. this not only softens the apples a tad, but also allows some of the sugars from the apple to infuse into the oatmeal. Today the apple was a bit of an after-thought; but it was still yummy!
What other fruits do you add to your morning oatmeal? Bananas, pears, peaches, etc?
