Yummy Breakfast on the Go: Oatmeal , strawberries , blueberries , almonds , walnuts , brazil nuts , and honey

I'm sure it's common knowledge that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It helps to energize us and start are day off right. So it should be packed with the right nutrients and minerals because when we are healthy, its easy to be beautiful.

So to make sure I get all my essential nutrients, I pack this easy oatmeal on the go.
First, I take I cook some steel cut oats and fill my Pyrex bowl little less than half way. I put no sugar in since I'm trying to stay away from refined sugar. I throw in a pinch of turmeric and nutmeg for taste. Then, I throw in some fruit. Today I used some bananas, strawberries, and blueberries. After that, I added some mixed nuts of almonds, walnuts cashews, and Brazil nuts. Last but not least, I drizzle some yummy honey on top. Of course, then I just throw the lid on and out the door I go!
