And beyond this oatmeal latte recipe, Nature’s Path has some doable tips for going organic:
- Look Inside Your Pantry: Fresh fruits and vegetables may be the first thing that come to mind when you think about organic, but don’t forget about your pantry. Staples such as flour, sugar, vegetable oil, peanut butter and more can be swapped out for organic options and make it easier to have organic food as part of every meal.
- Start with What You Eat Everyday: A good place to start is with the foods you consume every day. If you and your family start each morning with a bowl of cereal, try eating organic cereal. If salad is on your daily lunch menu, then buy organic greens and organic carrots, which tend to be affordable, too.
- Think Outside the Cart: You may think that organic food costs more, but you can find less expensive options by shopping at your local farmer’s market, comparing prices online, buying in bulk (which is better for the environment) and even growing some of your own food.

Looks amazing! I love the addition of foamed milk on top! I make espresso/coffee oatmeal as it always hits the spot on these cold sub zero mornings, especially a Monday morning when you need a little extra boost! 😉
Yikes, sub-zero mornings – a serious warm jolt is definitely required!
