Oats are a great source of complex carbs, but the numbers can get a little high if you are trying not to intake too many carbs in that meal. One way to build a big volume bowl and cut down the carbs is to add berries. Berries are nutrient dense, hydrating, and have lower carb numbers by volume than just oats. My favorite berry to cook into oats is the blueberry. Blueberries add a lot of juicy goodness to your oatmeal bowl and cook very easily. Next time you cook oats, throw in some blueberries for a nutrition boost.
