Oatmeal, 10 Blueberries, and 4 chopped walnuts...high protein, fiber, and B vitamins, also Blueberries are low GI and have Manganese which helps convert the proteins, carbohydrates and fats in food into to energy. High in fiber it helps cholesterol too!
Sometimes I have oatmeal and put 2 microwave eggs ontop...stir in the oatmeal I find it good!
Have also tried a tbsp. of Peanut butter swirled in....not bad
I use rolled oats and put 1/2 c. of frozen/fresh fruit (whatever i feel like) and microwave with water (I make it at work so microwave is the only option); OR make it plain and add 1 T maple syrup (pure) and cinnamon; OR put in a cut up banana sometimes adding a teaspoon of honey. Any way, it is yum!
I make my steel cut oats with milk on the weekends, I don't think the added fat is bad I think it makes it more filling and nutritious.

Taste of Home Healthy Cooking has a good baked oatmeal with blueberries and peaches. I make it on Sunday and I only have to reheat it in the morning. I don't like milk, so I top with 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt. Keeps me filled up thru the morning
Google 'crockpot oatmeal' and you'll get plenty of ideas. It's just steel cut oats, water/milk/whatever, fruit/nuts/whatever, and in the slowcooker it goes overnight. Morning - ta-da! Delish breakfast waiting for you. Best of all, you can reheat it and have breakfast for the week!

I make a big pot of steel cut oats every week and keep it in the fridge. Every morning, I warm some up in the microwave and then add raisins and brown sugar. Or half a banana, a little brown sugar and chopped walnuts.
So good! Approx 250 calories..

I just made an awesome baked banana blueberry oatmeal recipe from skinnytaste.com on Sunday, cut it into 9 pieces, and microwave for 1 minute. it's yummy!
I use nonfat milk instead of water to make my oatmeal creamier and also add protein and calcium. I always burn it if I try to make it on the stovetop, so I use a large bowl and microwave. After it's done, I stir in a little Splenda (or sometimes none at all) and a TBSP of peanut butter.

I've started cooking oatmeal with coconut milk. It's very high in fat but being lactose intolerant I thought it would be a good option for me. Does anybody think this is a bad idea for someone trying to lose weight?
Quick cooking oats microwaved with water, then stir in some splenda, 1 tbsp of peanut butter and a chopped apple. You can mix it up a million different ways with different fruit (berries, banana, etc) or trade out the pb for actual nuts and then add pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal, uncooked 1 cup canned pumpkin 2 1/2 c. milk (I use 2%, but you can use soy or nonfat or whatever) 1 1/2 oz. raisins 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice 1 tbsp Splenda dash of salt 3 Tbsp. chopped walnuts
Combine all the ingredients except walnuts and cook over low heat until it thickens. Serve with walnuts on top.
Makes 3 servings, 260 calories per serving. Yum!
