Banana Nut Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great choice for breakfast. It has fiber so it keeps you full, its a good carb, and you can add your own natural sweeteners instead of having added sugar like in cold cereals. Here is a recipe to try:
Banana Nut Oatmeal 
1 banana
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup milk
1 tbsp walnuts (optional)
1 tbsp wheat germ (optional...but it adds fiber!)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp brown sugar
Dash salt

Mash banana in a bowl. Mix in the oats; add the milk and microwave for 45 seconds. Add the nuts, wheat germ, vanilla, cinnamon, and honey. Microwave for another 45 seconds, or until oats are cooked and soak up all the liquid. Stir well; add a dash of salt. Enjoy!
