Healthy Eating Tip: Top Yogurt With Rolled Oats

I've 'fessed up to eating the same thing for breakfast every day: cereal and fruit with milk or yogurt. But lately, with all the delicious berries in season, I've been cutting down on the grains and loading up on fruit.

Hence, my latest healthy eating tip: treat your grains as a topping for your fruit and yogurt. Rather than load up on granola, which can be high in sugar and fat, use plain rolled oats (one of the foods women should eat daily) to add texture to your breakfast. A quarter cup of rolled oats has around 150 calories, but if you treat it as topping, you'll be eating less than half that amount.

I have to buy some frozen berries for my desserts and breakfasts (fresh ones are so expensive in France!). Speaking of yogurt (I know you love them), do you know fermented milk drinks? The texture is closer to yogurt than milk, and it's full of good bacteria (others than those used in yogurt). I drink one glass every morning, because it's really fresh, and it helps the digestion. Plus, it's always low-fat, despite its creamy texture.

Saw the post right before breakfast and made the switch. Unfortunately it seems I have been keeping the oats next to the chili powder. It was not the best taste combo. Think I will go out and buy some new rolled oats for tomorrow...

I get this from my dad. He loves mixing granola/rolled oats in his oatmeal. I'm not too crazy about it, but sometimes I'll go for it. But normally, I stick to my plain oatmeal and allspice or cereal and soy milk for breakfast.

I'm with anonymous - I eat oatmeal frequently, and 1/2 c. serving of rolled oats is 150 calories.

My dad ALWAYS puts a yogurt in his oatmeal every morning. I never could really get used to it for some reason. I like my oatmeal and yogurt to be separate.

i've done this for some time now since it's so hot where i live and i don't want to eat hot oatmeal all the time. also good to add flax meal and /or some chopped nuts of your choice on top.
