Peach oatmeal

Peaches are an excellent low-calorie snack that combined with oatmeal and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, makes a delicious healthy breakfast. And why a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg? Cinnamon has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties while nutmeg has lots of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory effects.
