Bright-Idea Oatmeal


There's good reason to eat your morning meal. Breakfast eaters have a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes. Start your day with oatmeal. Oats contain beta-glucan, a fiber shown to improve blood glucose control. This carb-smart formula provides at least 3 grams of fiber and fewer than 30 grams of carbs per serving.

  • ½ cup water

  • ¼ cup rolled oats

  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Bring water to a boil in a small pot. Add oats and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until water is absorbed and oats soften, about 5 minutes.

Cook oats either on the stovetop or in a microwave according to individual package instructions.

For more protein, add 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk to stovetop-cooked oats about 3 minutes before the end of cooking. Cook, stirring frequently, until egg is cooked through.
