Quick summer oatmeal

7 Aug

8483070607_a74ecc1521Making hot oatmeal on an August morning may not be on the top of your list. The warmth is just not as welcomed as a cold winter day!

But the fiber, complex carbohydrates, protein, iron and other minerals present in oatmeal is just too good to miss out on.

Here’s a solution – cold oatmeal!

All you need to do is soak the oats overnight in your favorite milk, add a touch of vanilla and cinnamon, and cover.

Then in the morning you are presented with a delightful, cooling, nutritious breakfast.

Get creative and add in whatever fruit, nuts, seeds you may have, and enjoy!
