Get your day started off on the right foot with this antioxidant-packed, immune-supporting, high-protein, fiber-rich oatmeal sure to hold you over until lunchtime.
When colds or flu symptoms strike our home, we fight back with good nutrition, fluids and rest. This hearty oatmeal has spices and fruits rich in nutrients like iron, vitamin C, ellagic acid and electrolytes like potassium just to name a few. Ginger also contains phytonutrients that can naturally help fight colds with anti-nausea, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory type actions.
Fun Tip: When bananas are about to go bad, I peel them and freeze them. They’re perfect to pull out for smoothies or this oatmeal. Feel free to use a fresh banana though!
