Breakfast

Seasonal Oatmeal

fullsizeoutput_12c5

Oatmeal is perfect for those cold fall mornings! This meal provides tons of vitamins and minerals so no need to count because this meal has the perfect amount of macro’s (carbs, fat, and protein). It’s so easy to make and takes no time to whip up before work, school, or even your workout.

I use oatmeal all the time, whether it be in the a.m. or as a pre-workout snack. These powerful oats have tons of fiber and protein to fill you up, causing you to snack less, form those of you that don’t snack. Oats are also a high nutrient food, I like to call these “superfood”s,

  • Iron – Transports oxygen to the blood
  • Zinc – Helps immune system fight off diseases
  • Magnesium – Body temperature regulation, energy, and detox’s your body
  • Copper – Healthy heart
  • Selenium – Prevents cell damage, and good for reproduction
  • Phosphorus – Bone and tissue health

Oatmeal gives you a balanced amount of nutrients that your body needs, so eat up!
