I start every day with breakfast! Most mornings I have Quaker Oatmeal - High Fiber and a 1/2 cup orange juice. The oatmeal gives me almost 1/2 of the fiber I need for the day and keeps me full all morning. Sometimes I sprinkle on some blueberries and then I've fulfilled 2 fruit requirements as well! A great start to my day

A wonderful breakfast treat this holiday season is oatmeal for breakfast - with a twist. Use only half or 2/3 the normal serving of oatmeal, with smashed banana and pumpkin (great way to get breakfast veggies) and a few grams of chopped walnuts and or raisins, prunes, etc. Then mix in pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, calorie free sweetener or better yet, sugar free pancake syrup . MMmm, MMmm, GOOD!
I'm a big oatmeal fan. In face, I am happy to eat whole grain, natural oatmeal for breakfast almost every day. I vary the taste by adding fresh fruit before I cook it (an apple, a pear, a banana, or a handful of cranberries) and pop the whole bowl in the micro-wave. It's a comforting, healthy, and filling breakfast.
