I love this oatmeal; it is one of my favorites. Add the raisins and the apples for all the benefits of a rounded meal. You can serve it with a couple slices of turkey sausage or egg whites to boost your protein to keep you satisfied until your next meal.

1/4 cup raisins
1/4 almond milk
1 tsp honey
1 small apple, chopped into bite-sized pieces

Oatmeal provides soluble and insoluble fiber for heart health and bowel benefits. It helps to regulate cholesterol while improving digestion. Adding almond milk gives it that creamy taste and texture along with the calcium and Vitamin D, but without any saturated fat, cholesterol or lactose normally associated with cow’s milk. Raisins are a good source of iron and honey gives flavor and helps to metabolize fat.
