Just because the weather is heating up, doesn’t mean you need to put away your oatmeal. Spring is peak season for berries, a no-brainer when it comes to oatmeal toppings. June also happens to be Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, just another reason to add more produce to your morning meals.
In addition, spring is right before bathing suit season. Are you ready hit the beaches, let your legs loose in your shorts or get some suns on those guns? With summer around the corner, you shouldn’t be putting the oatmeal away, but bringing it out. As shown in “You’ll Never Skip Breakfast Again”: When you eat breakfast, the benefits for your day and health are too good to ignore. Regular breakfast eaters have been shown to maintain a healthier weight. Breakfast can kick-start your metabolism and help you make healthier choices throughout the day. In fact, whole grains have been found to help combat the dreaded belly bulge.
