To create a complete protein, top your oatmeal with your favorites nuts/nut butters (I like adding chopped almonds and/or roasted almond butter).  It’s also good with a few spoonfuls of yogurt/Greek yogurt.  And, if you’re a huge cranberry fan, sprinkle on some extra cranberries  🙂

Skip the storebought oatmeals prepackaged in those cardboard boxes (that probably have more flavor and more nutrition than the oatmeal itself).  Those are super processed, boring and unhealthy.

Homemade oatmeal is tastier and just as easy to make.  Did I mention it’s tastier?  😉
