Berry Oatmeal

This Berry Oatmeal recipe is like your favorite T-shirt, worn and comfortable, with a big shiny, new, crisp and clean iron-on design smack-dab in the middle.  It can be Captain America, Iron Man, My little Pony, Lisa Frank; whatever you want.  The point is, it has chrome and it has sparkle.  The oatmeal is the worn and comfortable, and the macerated berries are the chrome and sparkle.  The simple blank canvas of oatmeal meets the pop and flavor of berries.

Berries are so good for you, fighting cancer with antioxidants, among many other health benefits.  Oatmeal is good for your heart, helping to ward off heart disease.  Almond milk is packed with protein and good fats that protect your brain.  The only thing here that’s not so good for you is the 1/8 cup sugar, and you can leave that out if you want to.
