As most of us know, it’s a healthy choice to start the day off with a big bowl of oatmeal. But I can’t be the only one more than a little bit bored by simple oatmeal, right? I’ve tried every type of topping and mix-in, from peanut butter to bananas to brown sugar to maple syrup. And while they definitely amp my oats up a bit, I still don’t wake up in the morning excited to eat.
But the other day, I got the bright idea that changed it all. I decided to chop up a NuGo bar and mix it into my morning oats. Best idea ever.
I opted for the NuGo Dark: Mocha Chocolate bar to add a REAL dark chocolate kick to my oatmeal. I simply chopped the bar up and mixed it in to the cooked oats. The chocolate melted perfectly and the brown rice gave the ideal crunch.
Now, not only am I getting the nutrition of oats, but I’m also getting extra protein and the health benefits of dark chocolate. First thing in the morning! And really, when you start your morning off with dark chocolate, you know it’s going to be a good day. Finally, an incredibly good reason to get out of bed in the morning.
