Dress up your oatmeal this January

When I was a kid I didn’t love oatmeal unless of course I could drown it in brown sugar and milk. The exception was my Grandpa’s oatmeal, it was perfect. I loved it. The oats were soaked over-night and there was of course the secret ingredient – Grandpa ‘magic’. I have yet to be able to make it just like Grandpa. Now, I love oatmeal. It’s a go-to breakfast for me and it’s never boring with endless ways to add flavor and punch to this oldie but goodie.

Oats are a nutrient-dense food loaded with protein, fiber and antioxidants. Incorporating oats into your diet provide benefits such as lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protecting against skin irritation and reducing blood pressure. These tiny grains, packed with goodness will help make you feel fuller, a perfect way to start your day. January is Oatmeal Month, and to celebrate we pulled together 5 delicious ways to dress up your oatmeal.
