So here goes.
Many weekday mornings start with oatmeal. I like oatmeal, I really do, but I mostly eat it because I know it's good for me. I used to buy the sweet, packages of quick-cooking oats, but maybe about a year ago I started buying the regular, old fashioned oats.
The additions to my oatmeal are usually the same: I combine 1/4 cup oatmeal with 1/2 rice milk, a couple dashes of cinnamon, a heaping spoonful of both ground flax seed and wheat germ, a sprinkle of almonds (or walnuts or pecans--whatever I might have) and some raisins. I microwave everything for 3 minutes at 50% power. When it's done, I drizzle a bit of honey on top. That's it! Delicious. A typical breakfast usually includes a yogurt and a cup of coffee, too.
And while I enjoy my oatmeal this way, I could stand to mix it up a bit. How do you like your oatmeal?
