You wake up and are getting ready to start your day but you need a breakfast that is going to stick around with you until you can make it to lunchtime.

So, how about oatmeal with a twist!

Add these 5 stunning ingredients to your oatmeal towards the end of the cooking process.

1. Nuts, either pecans or walnuts are best, pieces or whole whatever you like best.

2. Goji berry, adding goji berry transforms your oatmeal into a magical feel good breakfast with the natural effects of the goji for sure to last hours!

3.Seasome seeds, adding seeds to the oatmeal is prefect for extra nutrients! Add as much or as little depending on taste.

4.dried cranberry, prefect for the hint of sweetened tarty Chewy flavor instead of the old standby raisins.

5.1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter for the protein punch!

If you enjoy your breakfast oatmeal sweet try using local honey instead of sugar!

Oatmeal vs Malt-o-Meal

The main differences in Oatmeal and Malt-o-Meal are texture and flavor. Oatmeal is a bit heavier than when eating Malt-o-Meal, and it seems to stick around in your stomach longer. After you eat Malt-o-Meal you will be hungry earlier than if you were have eaten classic oatmeal.

Malt-o-Meal has a finer flavor, the texture is also finer. Tasting Malt-o-Meal you will get different flavors than with Oatmeal, it kind of hard to describe but when you eat classic oatmeal it’s pretty obvious you are eating a bowl of oats. This is not so true with Malt-o-Meal! Malt-o-Meal gives you a tiny hint of flavoring even when you don’t make the “flavored” type that they sell of the product.

For breakfast I think the best thing to do is rotate between Oatmeal and Malt-o-Meal every few days if you are eating it consistently, especially in the winter. I find that I prefer the Oatmeal more often and use the Malt-o-Meal as kind of the special “treat” every few days to break up the routine. Whichever breakfast you choose you are sure to enjoy it in the winter!
