In a breakfast time rut? Or even worse, too busy for a bit of breakfast?
Breakfast isn't called "the most important meal of the day" for no reason. The meal breaks up our nighttime fasting while also replenishing your sugar levels to give you the energy you need for the day. All of this is why running through a drive-through for a quick McGriddle and a hash brown isn't a great option.
I get it. Getting ready and leaving the house on time can be hectic, so breakfast is hard, let alone a healthy breakfast.
Enter Oatmeal. Oatmeal is the perfect quick and nutritious breakfast, and the possibilities are endless. They are so filling without that weighed-down feeling that some carb-heavy breakfast gives you and the options are truly endless.
This Banana Nut Oatmeal Recipe is a winner. It tastes like Grandma's banana nut bread without refined sugar or bleached flour. It is also packed with a ridiculous amount of health benefits to keep you charged for the whole day and beyond. It’s full of fiber to help your digestive system move, good carbs, Vitamin C, B6, protein, and tons of vitamin D.
