BIL makes his morning oatmeal in the microwave. I think it taste like glue when made that way.

And instant is even worse! lol

When I do make oatmeal, I prefer to make it on the stovetop. I buy the 5 minute aka quick cooking oats, bring 2 parts water to a boil and then add 1 part of dry oatmeal. Reduce heat and cook and stir over medium heat. I hate the really think mush, I like it quite loose. But like I said, I don't like to rush it so don't make it very often...........

You know now that you mention that. I bought a tall can on Quaker quick oats but haven't done anything with it yet. Do you make it just like you would instant oatmeal in the microwave. Someone told me the quick oats were better than instant...

Who have you encouraged today?

I sometimes microwave a nice bowl of fresh, quick cook oatmeal. Have you tried that? Comes out pretty yummy!

I usually have a sandwich, egg salad, pb&h, or tuna salad, etc. Seldom eat a "Breakfast style" meal.

I used to love oatmeal with raisins but never seem to have the time to cook and enjoy - and you can't rush a good bowl of oatmeal!

I eat breakfast every morning. Usually it's a bowl of cereal with 2% milk, a pack of sliced apples, and my Viactiv multivitamin and Vitamin C gummies. Sometimes I'll add some orange juice to subsitute the apples or drink V8 Fusion.

Weekday mornings at our house aren't overly chaotic, but there definitely isn't enough time to scarf down some food. So, I always have a glass of skim milk with my multivitamins before heading out, and at work, I'll finish breakfast with a piece of fruit, usually a banana, and sometimes a slice of toast with sugar-free jam. I spread out my breakfast so that I don't get hungry along the way, so by spacing out my fruit & veggies as parts of my meals, even if they're not eaten all at once, I feel fuller.

My mother was a firm believer in breakfasts, even if it is only a little something to start the day. I suppose I haven't forgotten that. :-D

For me, everyday starts with a proper amount of protein and carb balance. Usually eggs or low-sugar peanut butter and either a piece of bread or a banana. Sometimes I make some quick cooking oatmeal with milk (for protein), add in some nuts and a touch of dried fruit, plus some ground flax seed meal and a little honey or agavae nectar (a slower acting sugar).

emoticon Hi, Every day begins for me with oatmeal cooked with cinnamon, a few raisins and skim milk. Once in a while, I have an egg white omelet and whole wheat toast or maybe yogurt and fruit.

My name is Nadine and I live in Henderson, NV

Happy Thursday to you!

Do you eat breakfast every day? If you don't - think about your body. You are resting it from anywhere between 7-9 hours a night, and then expect it to function at 100% until lunch. No wonder those of us that skip breakfast are more likely to eat and eat as the day goes on. Our body is trying to get the fuel that we deprived it first thing in the morning!

Your challenge today is to EAT A HEALTHY, WELL-BALANCED BREAKFAST. Start off your day right! If you have already had your breakfast, share what you have eaten. Maybe it will give some of us knew ideas to mix up our breakfast choices.

Everyday, but especially during the holidays, we need to take care of our bodies by keeping them well nourished and well rested. That's why cold and flu season peaks during this time!

Have a wonderful Thursday!
