Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

When i was in high school i absolutely adored Hogi yogi’s Terriyaki Bowl made up of white rice, chicken, and teriyaki sauce. The sauce made the dish. Why? Sugar. I’ll stop there.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay naive forever and sugar in every meal of the day doesn’t really fall under ‘eating healthy’.  So after five years, i’ve finally figured out what is okay to eat.

Oatmeal–good. Oatmeal with Cinnamon Carmelized Apples–better. If you are not intolerant to wheat you can try subbing out Bulgar to change things up. It also has more fiber, protein, and less calories than traditional oats. This particular breakfast contains 48% of your DV for Fiber; so, there’s that.

1. Slice up your apples and add 1/4 cup of water, cinnamon, maple syrup, and nuts to the pan. Cover and let the apples steam and soften.

Pour over oatmeal, bulgar, or quinoa, and enjoy your healthy morning!
