Eat to one’s health

A good friend of mine, whom I would’ve never imagined to suffer from high cholesterol, has high cholesterol! In order to curb his cholesterol, WE, I say ‘we’ because we are food ninjas of the highest class, will no longer eat or seek out pizza, steak or hot wings as frequently as we do. Then, I began to think of what we could savor that would be a healthy alternative to polish hotdogs and Quaker Oats popped into my head. Remember, all those commercials about eating a bowl of oatmeal a day can lower your cholesterol? Well, I got to thinking how I could possible make plain oatmeal exciting.

Oatmeal with warm cinnamon fruit compote

Ingredients

Quarter of an apple (diced into cubes)

1/4 cup combo of dried cranberries and raisins

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla

1/3 cup of brown sugar

1/4 cup of water

2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts

1.  Mix all the ingredients together into a small pot and cook until apples are tender and liquid becomes glossy and syrupy. Stir occasionally.  About 15-20 minutes.

2.  Prepare oatmeal according to directions. Serve prepared fruit over hot oatmeal. Splash of milk if you like 🙂
