In the food realm, the health of our bodies depends on a good breakfast. A responsible meal plan includes breakfast to properly fuel our bodies. While it may be easy to grab a doughnut or just a cup of coffee, it is best to start the day strong with the right fuel. Recent studies have promoted the high fiber choice of oatmeal not only as a filling and tasty breakfast option, but also a proven aid in reducing cholesterol. I have discovered a recipe that is as quick as those sugar-loaded packets and isn't as mushy by using old fashioned oats. A LARGE bowl is recommended and necessary as the mixture does tend to bubble up while cooking for just a few minutes in the microwave. Give it a try. Be responsible; eat breakfast.
