It is such a basic food. I find that it is a breakfast that I can make taste different everyday. Here are some of my add-ins that make it taste pretty fabulous.
I have found that using spices to help combat my desire to have sugar in the oatmeal. I strive to eat less sugar and start my day with maximum punch. I make a big batch of the old fashioned oats and re-heat the leftovers. To keep the cost down I buy a 25 pound bag at (Winco) a grocery store that sells bulk. I like to eat hot oatmeal from about September to March because something warm in the morning gets me going. I go with Granola the other months.
Eat well, live well, and enjoy the view around you.
