In this creamy version of a breakfast staple, oatmeal is flavored with cinnamon-sugar and topped with fresh fruit. If fresh strawberries aren’t in season, the frozen kind make an excellent substitute. A splash of lemon juice can also brighten “less than ripe” strawberries and help their natural sweetness shine. And if your berries are extra-ripe, you might even want to omit the extra sugar. This high-fiber morning meal will be ready in minutes, yet leave you feeling full for hours.
