I always recommend that my clients eat a hearty breakfast at home every morning; however, I realize that sometimes life doesn’t allow for this. Starbucks has just begun to offer oatmeal (100% whole grain), which you can get with dried fruit, nut medley, or brown sugar.
This is a perfect meal for those fall days when you have to eat breakfast at your desk. To make the most of the meal, try it with nuts, which will add protein to the meal and make you feel full longer. If you want it sweet, try adding the dried fruit. If you’re watching your sugar intake, skip the brown sugar–it has an extremely high glycemic index and will leave you hungry sooner.
