This is an easy way to prepare a work week’s worth of healthier breakfasts. Reheat for 2 minutes in a microwave and you have the goodness of steel-cut oats and fruit. No additional sweeteners required, no excuse to not eat healthy now! Serve with cold milk, or better yet, a dollop of Greek yogurt! Yum!
Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add salt and cinnamon, stirring to evenly disperse the cinnamon. Stir in steel-cut oats and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Add blueberries and cranberries to the oats. Simmer until oats begin to reach desired consistency, about 5 minutes. Add pecans; simmer for 3 to 5 minutes more.
Add 1 cup of the cooked oats to each Mason jar. Screw lids on loosely and let cool on the counter until lids pop, about 30 minutes. Tighten caps and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Simply put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.

And of course, you benefit from all the other vitamins and antioxidants in fruit, which keep you strong and healthy.
