Super Power Cinnamon Oatmeal

Submitted by: CCKELLY3

Introduction

This version of oatmeal is loaded with fiber, chromium --shows to regulate insulin, blood metabolism, muscle growth and weight loss--, calcium and iron and B vitamins. The cinnamon also is shown to help with insulin and regulating hunger and blood sugar. A supercharge to your morning. The slow release of glucose balanced by the fiber is ideal for brain function, memory and perfect fuel for a day of learning, tests or high mental 'stressors'. Add a half ounce walnuts for Omega 3's and heart health, plus protein.

Serve with half a cup of milk with Vitamin D or pro biotic yogurt to make the Calcium more bioavailable.

**note, since breakfast isn't a Main Category option, I choose desserts because I often use leftover oatmeal with fruit to appease a late night sweet craving.
