    A breakfast classic made even healthier with the addition of cinnamon. Research suggests daily consumption of cinnamon may improve blood sugar levels, insulin sensitivity and blood pressure in those with type 2 diabetes.

    1 cup (250 ml) water
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) cinnamon
    1/2 cup (125 ml) large flake oats
    3 tsp (15 ml) almond butter

    Place thawed strawberries in serving bowl.

    In large pot, bring water and cinnamon to a boil. Stir in oats. Reduce heat to a simmer. Allow to cook until desired thickness is reached, stirring occasionally.

    Remove from heat and immediately spoon cooked oats over strawberries. Stir in almond butter and garnish with another dash of cinnamon if desired.

    Yogurt Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Cilantro

    Yogurt completely transforms the texture of these chicken thighs, making them tender and flavourful with bright notes of lemon and cilantro. Ideal for a day trip, these can be marinated in the morning and cooked in the evening, but they also work well when cooked in advance and packed for a picnic to be eaten cold. Marinade mentions Marinate chicken thighs for anywhere between 4 and 24 hours. Discard excess marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken. It should not be consumed uncooked.
