Secrets of Success

My Fall/winter Oatmeal



In the cool weather months, I add 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree to my oatmeal. I make my oatmeal with skim milk and add the pumpkin before cooking it in the microwave (stir well). Once it is cooked, I add my walnuts and a sliced banana. It is like having dessert for breakfast but it is really packed with what you need- Vitamin A, whole grains, calcium, potassium, omega-3, etc... A dash of cinnamon is also good in it. This is very satisfying and filling.
