I usually add raisins. I buy a bag of those teeny tiny boxes :-) Good iron and stuff. I just bought my first oatmeal container this week for the winter. I make the oatmeal with my milk rather than just water; nuke it; it's "quick" but not "instant" stuff, steel cut, nothing else in it, etc.

Trying to get my life back on track after the holidays and WAY too much fat/calories. I plan to eat more oatmeal since it is nutritious and filling. But, let's face it, oatmeal can be kind of BORING. So, I have tried adding the ingredients listed below to change up my breakfast. Any others?
Low fat yogurt (make the oatmeal a bit thick if you add this) Peanut butter (1 tablespoon before you microwave and stir - adds protein) Dark chocolate chips (just a tablespoon - great when you want a cookie) Canned pumpkin (1/4 cup leftover from making muffins) Cinnamon Almonds or walnuts
