Hi all this is my first post to this group but I am always looking for healthy recipes. I also do something different with oatmeal. I use steel cut oats that I usually buy in bulk from my local natural foods store. I add lean ham to the pot while cooking them and season with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. I usually eat this with either a poached egg or hard boiled egg. Delicious and healthy my favorite combination.

I don't use the instant because it will spike my blood sugar up to fast. I will use the regular oatmeal and cook it then add frozen blueberries or frozen strawberries.
Fresh if you have them. Oh so good. I also like the raisins. emoticon

I can't use that much salt or I bload up like a blimp! I alsolutely love to add 3-4 egg whites stired in after the oatmeal is ready and cook a little longer and then let is set, covered. Then I'll add my cinnamon, flax meal, sesame seeds and sometime crushed walnuts or pecans. It is the most feeling breakfast I have ever eaten. Sometimes I have to make myself eat lunch. :)

A healthy attitude of graditude and forgiveness.

I just realized if I cook a cup of oatmeal in the microwave with a handful of raisans, the raisans make it sweet enough. Then putting a little warm applesauce on top, and a couple of peacons. It's really good.

I agree, oatmeal is great. I looked at your rice recipe. Have you tried brown rice? it takes a while to cook, but keeps well in the fridge. You can take it cold and mix it with black beans, onion, carrot, celery, cummin, cilantro ( what ever you really like) and then put a little low fat italian dressing on it. Good as a lunch.

I thought I'd try something different from the usual banana and pb approach. I liked this new way so much that it has become a regular for me!

1/3 cup of Oatmeal (I like to use the plain instant kind, and I like to under cook it a little so that it still has a lumpy texture)

Once the oatmeal is cooked, add:

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp of olive oil
dash of paprika
pinch of dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

sometimes I'll add a tsp of parmesan cheese as well!
