Start your engine w/ Blueberry-Almond Oatmeal

We now all know how important breakfast is, it jump starts your metabolism and gives you the energy to start off your long day. This blueberry-almond oatmeal is so creamy and rich with delicious flavors.
It really only takes less than 10 minutes to make, that means that anyone rushing to get to work can take just a few minutes of their morning to put this scrumptious breakfast together, so don't give me that "it takes too long" excuse!

With the fiber-filled oats, and the tons of antioxidants that blueberries pack, this breakfast not only boosts your energy, but it leaves your heart and mind feeling happy because its so healthy and good for you. It will fill you up a lot longer than having that cup of coffee with donut or croissant, and it won't give you that crash that sometimes those empty and non-nutritional calories do.

Ingredients needed (serves 2):
1 1/14 cups quick oats
2 cups skim milk
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Handful of both blueberries and sliced raw almonds

Put milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a pot and bring to a boil, then lower the heat and stir in the oats, mixing for a minute until there is a creamy consistency. Pour into a bowl and mix the brown sugar, almonds and blueberries. You can let it sit for a minute to cool down a bit, but if you're like me, I just dig in and eat it a warm as I can...yummy to my tummy.

So give it a try and let me know what you think. ;-)
