Banana Blueberry O-mighty



Nothing beats a bowl of warm delicious oats especially when it’s cold outside. Before I switched my mindset around food you would have never had heard me say that I love oats.


Honestly, I could eat them here or there, say I would eat them anywhere! (lol) Oats are by far my favourite breakfast food.


Oats are a great source of fiber, meaning it takes a long time to digest and keeps you full longer. There is evidence that supports eating oats will help with weight management, reducing blood sugar and insulins. Other benefits of oats include reducing the risk of heart disease, managing cholesterol levels, and blood pressure.



Oats are very versatile, you can top it with fruits – cooked or raw, add nuts, seeds or even nut butter. So you see oats are the base and you can top it any way you want. When I first introduced how I eat oats to my mom, it was hard for her to wrap her head around adding fruits to her oats. I get it some people have their quirks about eating warm fruits. However, there is a variety of toppings you can add to oats, start with what you like and slowly start to experiment.
