Oatmeal with Fresh Fruit

May 12, 2015 | Issue 556

Oatmeal with Fresh Fruit

Morning Makeover

Start your morning off right with this fresh fruit oatmeal. Rolled oats, like all whole grains, contain vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fiber. Research has shown that eating whole grains lowers your risk of colorectal cancer and the soluble fiber found in oatmeal can also help lower blood cholesterol. Seasonal fruit, flaxseed and chopped walnuts add extra nutrition and the beneficial plant form of omega-3 fatty acid.

Makes 1 Serving. Recipe may be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.
