Mixed Berry "Oatmeal"

While oatmeal has fiber in it, bran cereal can give your body five times the amount of fiber. The addition of berries can load up your body with even more fiber to help keep your digestive system regular. This recipe was created by registered dietitian Tanya Zuckerbrot as part of The 28-Day Inflammation-Busting Plan.
