The Forgotten Breakfast

Old-fashioned oatmeal is one of the best ways to start your day. It’s low in calories (150 calories per serving), made with 100% whole grains, may help reduce cholesterol and most importantly it contains tons of filling fiber! The best thing about it is you can make it your own. My favorite variation (and I know this is my Mom and Dad’s too): a sprinkle of ground flax seed (it’s most easily absorbed by your body when it’s ground), a dash of zero-calorie sweetener (for my sweet tooth) and fresh/frozen blueberries!
