I "HEART" Oatmeal....

Monday, July 02, 2012

Good Monday Sparkfam! I how I love oatmeal but why don't I eat it more often? Well, the weather is too warm for one but then how do I eat other hot breakfasts? I don't know but I do. Why do they have to put all that stuff on there? I guess we all have our preferences. Do you like oatmeal? If so, how do you eat it? I take mine old fashioned, boiling water with a dash of salt, oats, sugar, cream & butter. Some times I get a little crazy & put some sprinkles of cinnamon maybe next I will try it with ginger since it also has disease fighting properties...

Today, I walked, did kickboxing for 30mins, then tonight I will lift weights for 30mins & TRY to get on that boring treadmill....

God bless & enjoy the ride!!

    I love old fashion oatmeal. Boiled in water, just slightly undercooked (not as long as the package asks for) and then some nonfat milk, and some splenda, on occasion I like to put on some walnuts, and raisins.

    Happy Monday Dee! Girl You ain't said nothing but THE Word. That's my go to breakfast O had the nerve to forgot to buy some when I went to the grocery store Sat. Smh I had my niece bring me some.

    I use Old Fashioned or plain instant if I'm out of OF. I use Almond milk, ALWAYS Cinnamon, walnuts or sunflower nuts, raisins, bananas and strawberries. I even may drop a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter in it. I don't use all these extras every time. I use ginger sometimes also. I have a 400 cal number to reach too lol.

    Love That Oatmeal! Thanks Dee!

    My feeling exactly about the treadmill , you go kick boxer!! I like oatmeal, also, Cream of Rice, by Red Mill, keeps me full until lunch. Karen No , I prefer one teaspoon of brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of Smartbalance? Have the fruit on the side.

    I love oatmeal, but only during colder months. I like a variety of toppings: frozen or fresh banana, brown sugar, cinnamon, 1 egg, peanut butter, coconut, chocolate chips, berries.

    I do occasionally make a breakfast 'cookie' which you put overnight in the fridge so it's cold and it has oats, milk, nut butter, toppings and banana. If you want the recipe I can send it to you.

    Steel cut oatmeal is my favorite--lots of fiber and great tasting! I will add a small amount of almond milk, brown sugar, a few nuts and some berries. I will have to try the peanut butter and banana though--sounds interesting!

    I use the oatmeal packets (shhhh) pre-flavored by Quaker Oats...I like Apples & Cinnamon the best...and I love to throw on a cup of strawberry halves and a tablespoon or more of ground flax seeds. YUM! That and a glass of milk is the perfect breakfast!
