How to Make Your Oatmeal Less Boring
- Add protein. Try mixing in a ½ cup of yogurt, 1-2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed, or a ¼ cup of nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds) for some added protein and healthy fat.
- Color your bowl. Create a more colorful oatmeal by mixing in fresh berries, a banana, dried cranberries, or sliced peaches.
- Spice it up. For more delicious flavor, add in cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, honey, molasses, maple syrup, or agave nectar. But go easy on the sweet stuff.
