A Super (Quick, Easy, Delicious and Healthy) Breakfast


Why is this a Foodgasm? 

Who likes their oatmeal creamy?! Yeah I do and I know you got your hand raised too! Creamy usually means a shit ton of calories and fat, but you know that's now how I roll. This oatmeal creamy because of the magic of nonfat Greek yogurt. Yup- Greece has got you covered again! 

This is a SUPER easy breakfast that is PACKED with staying power. It will stick to yo little riblets and keep you satisfied for hours. Thank you protein! Thank you nonfat Greek Yogurt and for complete instant oatmeal with even more added protein! 

The addition of a small amount of dried cranberries and pistachios brings a variety of texture and some sweetness. Making this really seem like a treat rather than that regular drab breakfast. Plus it adds color, making it a feast for the eyes as well Regular oatmeal color by itself just aint appealing.

What you need

1 packet Trader Joe's Oatmeal Complete, made to package directions (you can use whatever brand you like, but Trader Joe's is the best I tried, not all microwave oatmeal is equal)
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons pistachios
2 tablespoons dried cranberries

How to make it

1- Make oatmeal to package directions with water, I use less, I like it thick.
2- After it's cooked stir in Greek yogurt and then cover in the pistachios and cranberries.

DONE! In less than 5! You can have a healthy breakfast in a short amount of time and no prep! Do it up!

PS- I was in NOT asked by Trader Joe's to do this or compensated by them.  I just LOVE them soooo much! All their yogurt is hormone free for the same price as the leading brand. All their products have no preservatives and are high quality and extremely affordable!
