I make Oatmeal every morning. I use the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats but I still microwave it. I use 1/2 cup Oats and 1 cup water and cook for 2 minutes. I have a canister that I store the Oatmeal in and I also keep a 1/2 cup measuring cup in there too..makes preparing it that much quicker.

Pour boiling water over old fashioned oats and let it sit a bit. When you come back to it, it will be cooked, If you add some raisins or dried cranberries with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg before adding the water, it's especially tasty!
It's a good time to heat extra water to make morning black or green tea.
Start everyday with a packet of oatmeal. I actually double the recommended water and drink the oatmeal throughout the morning. I stay feeling full right up until lunch time. This was quick, easy, and helped me drop 40 pounds in 9 weeks (this and a lot of exercise30)
