This new twist on traditional oatmeal adds plenty of health benefits without sacrificing flavor.
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and can help lower blood pressure. Adding bananas to the mix increases potassium and can help with digestive health. The addition of quinoa provides added protein and amino acids to help fill you up and get your day off to a good start.
This healthy breakfast is a great option for adults and kids to enjoy. Research shows children who eat a balanced breakfast perform better in school. Plus, this tasty morning dish can be prepared the night before, which means one less chore in your a.m. routine.
