It’s the 1st Thursday of the month which means it’s time for Melissa to share another delicious recipe with us. If you’re trying to start the day better with a nutritious breakfast you’ll want to try this oatmeal recipe. I need to make this in the morning, maybe I wouldn’t want a snack at 9 am if I ate something more substantial for breakfast. Here’s Melissa:

Lately I have been trying to get a good start on the day by eating a filling, healthy, colorful breakfast. Now, when I say colorful I’m talking about fruit and veggies–not Froot Loops. Let’s be honest though, for a long time sugary cereals were my go-to, quick breakfast. They’re convenient and they taste good It’s hard to say no, but I was finding myself STARVING an hour after eating a bowl (or two) of sugar loaded cereal. Well, there’s no surprise that I wasn’t feeling fulfilled on a sugary breakfast, there are no nutrients in that overly processed junk. I decided it was time to change my morning habits and to make the time to prepare a delicious breakfast. At first it was a little bit of a sacrifice, I had to wake up a little earlier and I was getting a few more dishes dirty, but it has been worth it! I feel so much better after a great breakfast and I feel like I can tackle the day. Here is one of my favorite breakfast recipes.

peanut butter berry oatmeal

Peanut Butter Berry Oatmeal

1 cup cooked oatmeal

1 tablespoon all natural peanut butter

1/2 cup diced banana

5 large strawberries, diced


1. Cook oatmeal according to package directions. Add oatmeal to a bowl.

2. Stir in the peanut butter.

3. Top with diced banana and strawberries.


That’s it! A super easy and filling breakfast. If you’re looking for more healthy breakfast ideas check out this breakfast burrito or this spinach protein shake. Or check out for more recipes for any meal.

Thanks Melissa! Who’s eating a better breakfast tomorrow?

So simple, but sounds delicious. I never would have thought to add peanut butter to my oatmeal.
