It’s no secret that I love oatmeal. I literally eat it all year round. I do, however, like to mix it up a bit as the weather warms up and make a chilled version of my favorite breakfast food. The best part is, it’s not only super quick to toss together, it can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. This recipe is wide open to interpretation. In fact, I encourage you to play around with your favorite dried fruits and nuts and even spices. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination, so go wild!!tags: breakfast snacks fruit rice, grains and breads no-cook more
Here’s a “firecracker” you can eat! Pop these creamy Cherry Tomato Bomb appetizers into your mouth in a single bite and enjoy the fireworks. Avocados are a good way to get more lutein in the diet and act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene as well as lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. This recipe provides 136 IU of lutein, a natural antioxidant concentrated in the macula of the eye, which research suggests may help maintain healthy eyesight as we age.
Serving Suggestion: If you have extra cream cheese and avocado, mix them together and add some Sriracha. Enjoy on pepper strips or crackers.
