Update Your Oats

It’s time to give oatmeal its due: this often overlooked breakfast is one of the healthiest and surprisingly tastiest ways to start your day. Since most people don’t realize its potential, they dismiss its bland color and porridge-like sloppiness. Oatmeal usually conjures up the image of a Dickensian vat of flavorless mush, but if you pair unusual ingredients together this breakfast has an unlikely twist. Not only is oatmeal a healthier breakfast to enjoy, but it also keeps you full throughout the day–an advantage when there are so few opportunities to grab a meal between classes.
