Give your routine oatmeal a major makeover.
By Reina Berger
Oatmeal is often considered the ultimate nutritious breakfast food. Packed with calcium, potassium, and heart-healthy fiber, oats score major points in the health department and keep you feeling full and satisfied all morning long. While sweet toppings like fresh fruit, brown sugar, and raisins are typically par for the course, there’s something to be said for switching to the savory side. If you want to give your staple breakfast a makeover, check out these outside-the-box toppings for inspiration.
One of the downsides of a typical oatmeal breakfast is the lack of greens, but that all changes now. In savory oats, you can get more creative with your veggies, specifically with spinach, which is easy to fold into the oats and doesn’t have a sharp or distinctive flavor. Combine the spinach with a touch of melted cheese so you can get your greens in first thing in the morning and love every moment of it.
