What is a healthy oatmeal breakfast recipe?

Make that bowl of oatmeal a true breakfast of champions. Follow your usual recipe using skim milk or a healthy non-dairy milk. Then mix in:
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of Greek lowfat yogurt – Adds protein, calcium, probiotics
  • 2 tsp. of pomegranate seeds – Adds fiber, vitamin A, C and K
  • ½ tsp dried chia seeds – Adds calcium, phosphorous, fiber and manganese
  • 1 tsp dark chocolate mini chips – Adds anti-oxidants and a bit of sweetness
The combination of healthy grain, protein, vitamins and antioxidants will keep you satisfied till lunchtime. And speaking of lunch, swap out plain iceberg lettuce for Swiss chard, kale or spinach. These darker greens are rich in vitamin K which can help to lower your risk of diabetes.
