Eating the same boring oatmeal every morning?  Often when we're "craving" or "desiring" non-healthy foods our palette would be just as satisfied if we gave it a healthier option that was different from our usual.  Get out of a breakfast rut with the nutrient packed, yummy and easy oatmeal bowl.

As a bonus, the shredded coconut is a healthful addition to your diet, because it helps maintain healthy tissue and fights disease.
