Yummy and Healthy Breakfast - Oatmeal Bonus

Ever wonder what to eat in the am?  Try out my Oatmeal Bonus!  It's loaded with protein, fiber, antioxidants, and, it's sweet, satisfying, and all around yummy tasting!  Breakfast is important to eat in the morning to jump start your metabolism, give your brain and body fuel to get pumping for the day, and help you eat healthier throughout the next 16 hours.  It's true, without breakfast (and just coffee doesn't count) you will feel groggily and will be more tempted my that donut, candy bar, fast food, etc. because your brain (and cravings) will tell you to jump on that cookie and gobble it up as fast as you can....well...maybe not quite that extreme but I know those treats and unhealthy foods "speak" to you saying "eat me...". That's why you need to try this Oatmeal Bonus!

The oatmeal and hemp seeds provide protein, helping you feel full for longer
The chia seeds give you healthy Omega 3 fatty acids to feed your brain and body and fiber to help your gut
And, the berries provide antioxidants and a sweetness that will help fulfill any sweet-tooth cravings you might suffer from

My favorite combo is oatmeal, blueberries, dried tart cherries, 1Tablespoon ground chia seeds, 1 Tablespoon hemp seeds, and 1teaspoon ground flax seeds...yum, Yum, YUM!

Try it out for a week and let me know what you think!  Enjoy!
