Oatmeal, yummy, oatmeal!

I am not talking about the pre-packaged, pre-seasoned, just add water variety. While convenient, you may find that the main ingredient is high fructose corn syrup and other preservatives. I am recommending taking a few (maybe five at most) extra minutes and making REAL oatmeal. First, make sure you start with "old-fashioned" rolled oats, not the "quick-cooking" kind. They are nearly as fast and provide more fiber and longer-lasting energy.

I promise that it is fast and easy. You may have already purchased "old-fashioned" oats for another recipe so go ahead and give it a try for breakfast. You can also check out for more suggestions on yummy additions to your oatmeal. The options are really endless.

Like with anything new, start slow. You may only try one sneaky ingredient or flavor at a time and then build up your courage and your kids'/husband's taste buds.

I would love to hear if you have favorite combinations for your oatmeal, too!
