So these days, I try my best to eat fruits and vegetables raw if possible. For breakfast, instead of boiling apples with oatmeal, I would add freshly chopped apples directly with the cooked oatmeal. This is because the apples itself isn’t that hard or tough to chew upon, so there isn’t a need to boil it just to soften the apples. Eat it fresh. Right now, I prefer to eat freshly chopped apples with oatmeal and walnuts just for that extra added crunch.
I found some raisins and cranberries in the fridge that morning so I just topped my cooked oatmeal with some of those sweet little things and a teaspoon of honey.
