Valentine’s Day Oatmeal is Pink Hot!

Valentine’s Day Oatmeal is Pink Hot!

Valentine’s Day is next week, and the world will be covered in various shades of red & pink with hearts of all sizes adorning everything everywhere you go.  Right now, every website is recommending recipes and breakfast-in-bed ideas to treat your valentine with heart-shaped food  – cinnamon rolls, eggs, cupcakes, …….. With all the reminders of the HEART, it’s funny everything is either covered in chocolate or loaded with sugar during this holiday.

Today, I made PINK HOT OATMEAL for a tasty treat that is quick, cheap, festive, and  contributes to my health! The red hots turn the oatmeal a beautiful pink color, and a few of them added a sweet ‘n’ spicy crunch in every other bite!

Oatmeal is good for you, because it is low in fat & calories, and high protein & fiber. It is gluten-free and helps to remove bad cholesterol.  It also contains lignans that protect against heart disease & cancer. So if you’re looking to lighten up this Valentine’s Day, this might be just what you need show your valentine you really care about him/her!
