The Best Oatmeal Ever
Feed Your Heart And Soul
Oatmeal is one of those rare foods that's at home in both categories, Healthy & Affordable. For less then 15 cents a serving you can start out your day with a nutritious breakfast and have almost as much money as when you got up. Think about it, what other breakfast choice can say that?
And Oatmeal is not just for breakfast. You can mix it with other ingredients to make bread, cookies, salad, soap and beer to name a few of its versatile uses.
At least 5 days a week I have a serving of oatmeal mixed with 3/4 cups of wild blueberries, topped with a little skim milk. This wonderfully healthy and delicious Oatmeal and fruit breakfast costs less then 1.20 per serving, with the wild blueberries from Maine adding most of the cost.
Sunshine on My Oatmeal
Oatmeal lends itself to whatever you imagination can come up with. You can add sugar, honey or molasses to give it a distinctive flavor. Some people eat it like rice with salt an pepper and a dab of butter.
As you can see from the picture I took below I like to go the fresh or frozen fruit route. I slice Strawberries or Bananas straight into the hot Oatmeal, topped off with a little skim milk and I'm good for hours. If I'm in the mood for something out of season I'll take a handful of frozen Blueberries or Raspberries and let them thaw a bit before I cook the Oatmeal.
