January 12, 2012 | Posted By: Bernadette Bendik | Categorized in: Food & Dining Out, Family
Its a start of a new year. This usually means new resolutions. Our top resolutions may be to lose weight, eat healthier, or actually use our gym membership. I know I am trying to get to the gym more often, eat better, & making healthier meals for my family.

Let's start off with a hearty breakfast. This will help you energize & keep your body "fueled" for the day. Oatmeal is a good source of fiber to help with digestion & packed with many nutrients.

Hearty, Healthy Oatmeal


I tweaked Jessica Seinfeld's "Deliciously Deceptive" recipe for Oatmeal.

    2 cups 100% Whole Grain Oats
    2 cups of Skim Milk
    1 1/2 cup Boiling Water
    1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
    1/2 cup Applesauce
    1/2 tsp Cinnamon
    1/4 cup Dried Cranberries

    (Serves 4)

1. Boil Water in a saucepan or a stove-top kettle. We will add ingredients to a microwave-safe bowl. It helps control consistency & thickness of oatmeal.

2. Add Whole Grain Oats to bowl. Pour Water over Oatmeal slowly & stir to desired consistency.

3. Add Skim Milk & Applesauce to desired creaminess. Top off with Cinnamon, Light Brown Sugar, & Dried Cranberries.

Some substitutions/variations are 1/2 can of pureed pumpkin, 1/2 cup pureed sweet potato/yams, 1 cup evaporated milk, sliced bananas, fresh blueberries, 1 tbsp peanut butter, pumpkin pie spice, chopped walnuts, sliced almonds, golden raisins, & pure maple syrup.

Happy Eating!

"I topped of my oatmeal with raisins, chopped walnuts & shredded coconut!"
