O.k., if I could eat anything for breakfast everyday and get away with it - egg McMuffin or world's best chocolate donut. Needless to say that isn't realistic AT ALL. So, I have found my way to oatmeal. Huh?
I know, there are not even in the same family. But I find a big bowl of oatmeal with just a bit of brown sugar and nuts satisfying. The whole grain has a whole list of happy side effects and the nuts are monounsaturated fat heaven. The bit of brown sugar isn't great, but compared to my other options - at least it is real sugar.
The greatest part is I can usually make it to lunch without needing to snack. Or if I am really famished, adding a banana mid-morning will get me through. AND of course, it is substantially healthier than some of the options I would love to have.
So, thank you Mister Quaker - your oats rock!
Yours in health,
