Add fruit to your cereals

Adding fruit to your cereals is a great strategy that gives your meal more flavor and makes it more satisfying. Slice up any sort of fresh fruit, such as bananas, nectarines, or peaches, or sprinkle some fresh berries on your cereal or oatmeal. Dried fruit is also a wonderful choice and is easy to store in your pantry. Just choose dried fruits with no added sugars.

You can add fresh fruit to your cereal year-round. Just keep frozen fruits and berries in your freezer so you can thaw them in the microwave in a few seconds. Their warm, juicy texture is perfect on top of oatmeal or low-fat granola.
