A steaming bowl of fresh cooked oatmeal is the perfect way to start off your day. What better way to gain the strength and energy to carry you through a hectic morning. Numerous studies show oatmeal may help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. What’s terrific about making oatmeal is the combination of flavors you can fit into a serving is limited only by the imagination. These days, I’m loving the combination of peanut butter and jelly swirled into mine. Peanut butter is rich in protein and is heart healthy too.

  6. I love the reduced-sugar preserves at Trader Joe’s. Each tablespoon has 30 calories. Knott’s Light preserves is also tasty with 20 calories per tablespoon. You’ll find it in most supermarkets.
  7. Trader Joe’s sells delicious natural, unsalted, crunchy peanut butter. Laura Scudder’s makes a natural, crunchy peanut butter, too.
