Oatmeal is a wonderful choice for a whole grain breakfast, and can be served just as good cold as hot. We need anywhere from 45-64% of our calories to come from carbohydrates to power us through the day with energy for our bodies and minds…including oats in the morning is a key way to get off to the right start. Soak overnight in your milk of choice (I prefer coconut milk since its less prone to cause allergic reactions and its also makes for a creamy variation) and toss in some fresh berries, vanilla and a little sweeter and you have a delicious, gluten dairy free breakfast your whole family will love.
