Banana Apple Oatmeal

Banana Apple Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of the most common and popular breakfast choices for Americans, the British, and Australians. It's comforting, filling and delicious.

This recipe for oatmeal skips the grains altogether, offering a delicious alternative for anyone avoiding grains. Instead delicious sweet fruit is used to mimic the consistency and comfort of oatmeal, with the added bonus of a ton of healing properties from the fruit.

Bananas are not only a great grab-and-go snack, but they are a wonderful ingredient for adding sweetness and creaminess to delicious and healthy smoothies and treats. If you suffer from a sleep disorder, the high levels of tryptophan found in bananas can help ease these conditions. This is true if you wish to lower anxiety, ease depression, or foster a greater sense of calm as well. On an emotional level, bananas can offer tremendous assistance. If you or a loved one suffer from PTSD, consuming three or more bananas a day can help alleviate this condition. 

Apples are a powerful fruit that should not be undervalued because of their familiarity. Apples have incredible anti-inflammatory properties, and their ability to soothe the body of bacterial and viral toxins that can give rise to inflammation make it an excellent food if you are suffering from encephalitis (brain inflammation), IBS (intestinal inflammation), or nerve inflammation brought about by a viral infection. If you are looking to offer your brain some extra support, turn to the apple. Its phytochemicals not only help to boost electrical activity, but they offer nourishment for your neurons as well. 

The antioxidant strength of cinnamon is astounding. Its antioxidant might is more powerful than that of all other foods, fruits and vegetables included. Cinnamon can offer wonderful assistance if you are suffering from nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion, or flatulence. It can also come to your aid if you are battling a flu. Not only can cinnamon help ward off the flu, but it can reduce its length and help wipe out congestion and mucus from the system as well. Throw a dash of this spice in your tea, try it in a smoothie, or sprinkle it atop your favorite treat or meal and know that you are receiving a number of benefits from a spice that’s been celebrated as a medicinal powerhouse since antiquity. 

Raisins can easily be ignored or forgotten, but they actually offer wonderful health benefits and in fact offer greater nutritional might than the goji berry which is touted as a superfood. Raisins can vary in size and color depending on which type of grape is used. Grapes have a lengthy list of health benefits and can be particularly beneficial when it comes to battling The Unforgiving Four. They possess strong antiviral properties and can help in the removal of radiation from the body. They also work to remove DDT and toxic heavy metals from the liver thanks to the collaborative efforts of their amino acids and anthocyanins.

The optional ingredients offer numerous health benefits as well. During the fall in Maine, Native Americans used to harvest an abundance of wild blueberries and dry what they gathered so that they could continue to receive the nourishment of these sun-dried berries during the winter months. If you are looking to cleanse your liver, start to bring cranberries into your meals and snacks, this powerful berry is a particularly wonderful liver cleanser. Not only will a sprinkle of almonds or walnuts add a nice crunch to this dish, but they can support your health as well. The walnut helps shield cells from the damaging effects of free radicals thanks to the high level of vitamin E it contains. Almonds can support the body by helping to strengthen both nerves and bones.
