I applaud you for giving up your cornflakes!!! I know it is not easy to give up your favorite cereal! I use to be a cereal monster! Loved it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Over the years of doing research, I too have come to the conclusion that these so called “healthy” cereals aren’t as healthy as we thought… or as we were brainwashed to think. Many are filled with preservatives, weird dyes, chemicals, gmo etc… YUCK & NO THANK YOU.
Switching to an organic oatmeal is best. I have finally ditched the white sugar and brown sugar, and have just learned to love love love fruit! My favorite way to eat oatmeal is plain, with any chopped raw fruit. The fruit usually changes with the season. Sometimes I will add chia seeds, bee pollen, vegan protein powder or hemp seeds for added nutrients. If I add milk it’s always a vegan option: Almond or coconut.
It is hard at first to ditch the processed refined sugar so if you feel like you need to add a sweetener try out: REAL organic maple syrup, RAW organic honey, stevia or Agave (be careful with agave since it is processed).
I hope my suggestions help you out! :)
