It's no secret that oatmeal is full of fiber, but you might not know just how much this food can do for your health. Oats are thought to lower inflammation and bad (LDL) cholesterol, as well as help guard against high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and weight gain.
If you're the type who doesn't want mini marshmallows and chocolate stirred into oatmeal (we know you exist!), we got you: Top with maple syrup, cranberries, and pistachios.
1/2 c. milk or water
1 c. old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tbsp. maple syrup, plus more for drizzling
2 tbsp. shelled pistachios, chopped
1 tbsp. dried cranberries
