Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal

Wellness Tip- not all fats are bad fats! Food with healthy fat like avocado, olive oil, and nuts raise your good cholesterol (HDL) and are heart healthy!

Fall is in the air! Pretty soon the leaves will be turning orange and red, and quarter zips will be broken out of the closet. My favorite part of Fall is all of the pumpkin, butternut squash, cinnamon, and other heavenly smells. This week I’m posting one of my favorite oatmeal recipes that will be made many times this Fall. It is a healthy breakfast that will keep you full until lunch. Enjoy!
