Baked Oatmeal for the Breakfast Win!
It is proved over and over that skipping breakfast is not a good way to get ahead with your health. During the winter season, eating warm foods can help keep us warm if we tend to run a bit chilly! Nutrition is a critical component of our overall fitness, health and wellness routine. Fitting it all in can be tough but a very worthy journey.
Variety is the spice of life so here is a great healthy take on oatmeal that serves up like a healthy dessert without all the added sugar. I have enhanced the original recipe to make a touch healthier with less sugar & healthier fats. Take a peek at both & make it for multiple days worth of breakfast!
