The best oatmeal

I was starting to get a little sick of juices and smoothies, so I thought I’d try a different breakfast food that I felt was equally healthy. I bought some quick oats, just your standard Quaker can variety, and a bunch of fresh berries. Instead of milk I used almond milk, and that little extra bit of flavor makes all the difference to me.

My favorite oatmeal

1/2 cup quick oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup of your favorite berries
Drizzle of agave nectar

Mix up the oats and almond milk in a bowl and microwave them for about 3 minutes, or until you get the consistency you like. Drizzle on the agave nectar (just a little bit!) and sprinkle on your berries.

I love oatmeal, too, because it’s such a great base for whatever toppings you want to put on. Maybe dried fruit or nuts — I’m thinking figs and walnuts — or a drizzle of maple syrup would be better on a different day.
