    Red White and Blue Oatmeal

    Weekends are a slippery slope when it comes to eating. During the week, I am very good at consuming whole grains, fresh produce, lean protein and drinking lots of water. Then Friday rolls around and all hell breaks loose.

    If you live in America, you probably spent this holiday weekend at a BBQ or pool party surround by chips, brats, and coleslaw. (Or was that just me?) Fortunately, today is a new day and this creamy bowl of oatmeal is the perfect way to start fresh. By adding milk, ground flaxseed, wheat germ, and fresh berries, this recipe is loaded with protein, fiber, and nutrients.

    The walnuts are loaded with healthy fat and Omega-3’s which will keep your hunger at bay for hours. Talk about a bowl that packs a punch! Your body might even forgive you for what you did to it yesterday.

    Your spoon is waiting.
