Meal of oats

Oatmeal! My favorite breakfast regardless of the season! But especially when it’s colder outside, a nice warm bowl of oatmeal does the trick. But hold on, I’m not talking about packaged pre-portioned instant varieties–I like my plain, old-fashioned rolled oats. Plain and simple (of course I add my own fixin’s). Why am I so fond of this rolled grain, you ask?

  • It is a whole grain, which means it has lots of vitamins and minerals
  • It has a nice helping of fiber and protein
  • It is low in fat and calories
  • It is tremendously versatile

If you haven’t already, you should try making your own oatmeal from old fashioned rolled oats. Cook them with water or milk–your choice! Try adding

  • walnuts, cinnamon, and some plain greek yogurt
  • ground nuts with a touch of maple syrup
  • fresh fruit (apples, pears, peaches, plums)
  • frozen fruit (berries)
  • raisins/dried cranberries, cinnamon, and nuts
  • a bit of fruit preserves with plain yogurt

The possibilities are endless!
