This oatmeal recipe is a warm and inviting way to start your morning.
It is simple to make in the microwave and I use frozen fruits to make my prep time very short.
Adding Walnuts To Your Oatmeal
I hope you enjoy it and make it your own ‘go to’ breakfast.
In the recipe below I do include a small handful of walnuts. Nuts are a great way to get healthy fats into your daily diet, but watch your portion size, especially if you are eating them as a snack. They are easy to overeat.
I find that I get my requirement of nuts or seeds from wholesome recipes that I make throughout the day or I use them as a topping on my salad.
Adding Hemp Seeds To Your Oatmeal
I do add the hemp seeds to this oatmeal recipe. You can find hemp seeds in the health food aisle of your local grocery store or on online marketplaces like Amazon.
Hemp seeds are a wonderful addition to your diet and may make a noticeable improvement in your digestive health (Let’s just say that if you are constipated, then hemp seeds will help).
Hemp seeds are also rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, which are good for lowering triglycerides in your blood and might even help with joint health and depression.
