I’ve been experimenting with eating oatmeal for breakfast on a daily basis. My grandpa, who just turned 90, ate oatmeal every day and claims it’s his "secret". In this incarnation, I’m packing it full of protein, antioxidants, potassium, and iron. Did you know that flax seed has six-times the essential omega fatty acids than fish oil? If you are vegan or vegetarian and you’re not eating flax, you better get started! This super-food is crucial for heart, brain, and almost every organ’s health. The anti-inflammatory and cancer reducing sweet burst of blueberry is loaded with phytochemicals – and the iron and zinc-rich maple syrup and natural sweetness of the B6 and potassium-stocked banana make this a breakfast sure to give you a kick in the ass to start your day.
