Nicole’s Daily Breakfast

About a year ago, I started eating oatmeal for breakfast.  And I haven’t stopped!  Oatmeal tastes great and gives you sustained energy throughout the morning.  I stick to the same basic recipe, but switch up the fruit to add variety.  Here’s what was in my bowl this morning:


  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oatmeal
  • 1 ripe banana, chopped
  • 1 white peach, chopped
  • ~10 frozen blackberries
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal (optional)


  1. Put oatmeal, fruit and milk in a bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, or until oatmeal is desired consistency.
  3. Sprinkle with cinnamon and flaxseed meal (optional).  Stir and enjoy!

Next month, I may start enjoying my Fall Morning Oatmeal recipe again…
