Nutrient Rich Oatmeal

If you're looking for an easy way to up your vegetable consumption, look no further, start putting zucchinis (grated) in your oats.

Trust me, you will NOT taste it, you just benefit from the nutrients, plus it creates more volume to your oatmeal bowl so it keeps you full for longer. It’s a very healthy and hearty meal.

This is also a great option to prepare ahead of time / overnight, to quickly put together in between meetings or classes, and gives you flexibility into toppings and fruits!

Note: Drain the zucchinis after grating to get rid of excess water
