A hot cereal for breakfast is a great way to start the day.

  • 1 envelope (38/40 g) pure oats oatmeal
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) wheat germ
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) skim milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh or frozen unsweetened berries (such as blueberries, raspberries or sliced strawberries)
  • Half a small banana, sliced
  1. Pour oatmeal into a bowl, stir in wheat germ. Pour in milk and stir to combine. Microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds or until desired thickness. Stir in berries and banana and let stand for 30 seconds before enjoying for flavours to combine.

Tip: Let oatmeal stand a bit longer for a thicker consistency.

This is great to pack in a thermos and have it ready to enjoy when you get to school or the office.
