Cinnamon Walnut Oatmeal

There's nothing better than starting your day off with a delicious, healthy breakfast!  And there's nothing more delicious or healthy than a good old fashion bowl of oatmeal.  It's nature's cholesterol fighting food and it can help lower yours too.

To get all the health benefits without sacrificing taste you've got to get back to the basics when it comes to all those rolled oats.  That means no ripping open a paper packet of sugar laden, processed oats that resemble more of a chemistry experiment than actual food.  But don't worry because the following recipe takes just as little effort and tastes much better than that packet of pseudo oatmeal from old man Quaker.

1/2 cup old fashion oats
1 cup water
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries
fresh blueberries
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg (optional)
dash of stevia (optional)

Place oats in bowl and add water.  Cover with paper towel and let sit overnight.  The next morning drain remaining water out of bowl.  Crush walnuts and add to oats.  Add dried fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg, and stevia and mix.  Top with fresh blueberries and a fresh strawberry.  Enjoy until your hearts content!
