1/2 cup of dry oatmeal is 150 calories. I love muesli, and turning the 1/2 cup of dry oatmeal into 1/2 cup of muesli, can make it anywhere from 200 to 300 or even more calories. I have computed various combinations using the spark recipe maker doo-dad. Actually, a fun thing to do!!!

Well, I do think the muesli sticks with a person, preventing the 11 am starvation routine. Amazing how those nuts and seeds, and raisins up the ante, both caloric wise, but also filling wise.

    I cook up 1.5oz of rolled oats every morning. For some reason hot meals last longer than cold ones.

    In the winter, there is nothing better than hot oatmeal (and I add a few nuts).

    I love oatmeal. I've been adding a T. of Flaxseed and a T. of Wheat Germ. Adds a little bit calorie, but it also adds other nutrients.
