Today we are making Old-fashioned Oats for a new way of thinking! If you’re finding yourself saying that oatmeal is not your thing or find it boring, please take the time to read the article I found in “EAT THIS, NOT THAT”  that will surprise you on how important it is to incorporate Oats into your diet including delicious recipes https://bit.ly/3gAx1lk

I also included a recipe for a  beautiful creamy bowl of oatmeal from my cookbook, “Food for Thought” at bottom of this page.

Are you of those people who skip breakfast or don’t like to eat breakfast? Studies have found that eating breakfast improves short-term memory and attention. Students who eat a balanced breakfast perform better in school than those who don’t. Foods at the top of the brain-fuel list according to researchers’ include high-fiber foods such as oatmeal, no-sugar, whole grain cereals, protein such as eggs, nuts, and, yogurt, and fresh organic fruits! Avoid any high-calorie sugar-coated cereals. High-calorie sugar-laden cereals hinder concentration, in school, place of work, and life in general! Start your day on a positive note:) To your health!
