Put all the unhealthy food habits of the past year aside and let's start this New Year with good spirit and good thoughts. Everyone should have a New Year resolution and stick to that throughout the year. Having said that, let me share my New Year resolution with you all.
1) Never skip breakfast.
2) Start eating healthy.
Being a mom of a super active toddler and a full time blogger, managing time is a hard thing for me. Each day starts with chaos and I end up skipping meals because there is never enough time which leads me to eat a whole lot of junk snacks which I shouldn't be eating at all.
So I have taken my resolution pretty seriously, waking up an hour or two before my little one is up and preparing a healthy breakfast for myself. I love having oatmeal for breakfast, so I have decided to take it as my breakfast daily. Preparing oatmeal hardly takes 5 mins and you can top it with your favourite toppings. One of my all-time favorite is fruits and nuts with a drizzle of honey. I even love to top it with some crunchy granola and flax seeds too.
Oats are packed with fibre which actually keeps you full for longer and also help in weight management. So forget all those junk foods you have been putting in your body and start eating healthy. In the long run, it will make you fit, keep you healthy, and takes 5 minutes to cook and create a healthy and tasty bowl of oats.
Now coming to today's post, it is about delicious fruits and nuts oatmeal. Adding fruits and nuts to your morning oatmeal ensures you eat healthy. The natural sweetness from these fruits will actually sweeten your oatmeal so you don’t have to add extra sugar to your oatmeal. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
