Bring New Life to Your Oatmeal

Breakfast is my favorite meal. During those cold months, oatmeal becomes a staple each day. It doesn't have to be the same ole same old oatmeal though. In fact with these recipes, everyone in my family can treat themselves special with the same pot of oatmeal.

Whether you chose to make Old Fashion Oatmeal or Steel Cut Oats these recipes will be a hit. The challenging part will be which one will you choose each morning. 

Blueberries and Cream Oatmeal  (Strawberries work great too)

1 Serving of hot oatmeal

1 scoop Angel Food Cake Protein Powder (vanilla works great too)


1/3 cup blueberries

Mix the water with the protein powder until it forms a pudding type mixture. Pour on top of your hot oatmeal then add your blueberries. Enjoy.
