Get a Good Start in the Morning

by Carrie
(Texas)

I like to have a fantastically healthy breakfast so that whatever the rest of the day brings, I know I've done my part to try and stay healthy. I make oatmeal, but boy what an oatmeal I make. Here are the ingredients I use.


1/2 cup of organic old-fashioned oatmeal cooked with 1/2 c water and 1/2 c. organic soymilk made from only soybeans and water. (Don't use the kind that has sugar or lots of ingredients) I cook this in the microwave for 4 minutes.

While it's cooking I prepare the following to add to the oatmeal:

1/2 c. frozen organic blueberries..............to ward off Alzheimers!

1 tsp Almond butter............................heart health

handful of chopped walnuts.....................Omega 3 fatty acids/heart brain health

cinnamon.......................................for blood sugar control

1/2 tsp honey..................................makes it taste better !


Oatmeal itself helps lower your cholesterol plus has resistant starch that can help your colon retain it's lovely biome of helpful bacteria.

My breakfast and a 20 min walk every day help me stay feeling great.

Hi Carrie,

I like your choice of breakfast.

One question: Where do you buy the organic oatmeal and soy milk from and what is name of oats?

I will appreciate your help.

Sounds yummy and healthy and a cool way to start the day. I will have to tuck that recipe away for when we get back home. Thanks for sharing.
