Easy and Healthy Recipe - Vanilla Almond Oatmeal

Team - The USDA recommends eating at least 3 servings of whole grain each day.  A healthy oatmeal breakfast is a great way to start the day.  Oatmeal is a good source of fiber, maintains blood sugar levels and helps to satisfies your appetite.

This oatmeal recipe is a little sweet, but the nutmeg gives it a little bit of spice.  Yum!

2 cups of Oats
3 1/2 cups of Water

Nutmeg (to taste)
Brown Sugar (to taste)
Pinch of Ground Cinnamon  

2.  Pour your water (3 1/2 cups) in a medium saucepan and bring to boil

3.  Put your Oats and Raisins in a prep bowl and add to the boiling water

4.  Immediately turn the stovetop to Low and stir occasionally, 5 minutes total.

5.  Add the Ground Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Brown Sugar to your Oatmeal.

6.  Spoon the Oatmeal into the bowl and add Milk (1/4 cup). Stir!

7.  Garnish with almond slices and enjoy!

It's simple, healthy and the right option to start your day.
