Tip of the Day: A heart-healthy breakfast for Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Even today, you don't have any excuses not to eat a tasty, low-calorie, heart-healthy breakfast packed with high energy yielding nutrition!

Here's what I ate this morning:

Oatmeal
How appropos for Valentine's Day! Don't you love the heart-shaped strawberries? 

This awesome breakfast takes less than 3 minutes to prepare and you can even slap it into a take-out cup and eat it on the road with a plastic spoon!

Here's all you need:

Bethy's Awesome 3-Minute Breakfast

½ cup oatmeal — the plain old-fashioned kind, not the kind in flavored sugar-laden packets!

1 cup water

1 teaspoon REAL peanut butter (the kind with no other ingredients except peanuts — ie no added sugar or chemicals) (Yes, of course you can substitute cashew or almond butter.)

½ cup fresh berries or a small banana or other favorite fruit

You can microwave the oatmeal and water and then add your ingredients.

The whole thing has way less than 300 calories and less than a ¼ of the calories come from fat!

This quick and yummy breakfast is packed with SO much nutrition that you'll have more energy than you know what to do with.

Plus it's so high in fiber that you'll be full for hours — and yesterday’s “junk” will fly right out of your trunk LOL!

You can’t say that about that bagel with cream cheese that has twice the calories, 3 times the fat and offers little nutritional value to help energize you nor enough fiber to aid with moving other stuff through your body!

And look how pretty and appropo to Valentine’s Day it is with the strawberries!

Give this to yourself and your honey and be heart healthy today and every day.
