Summer oatmeal

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Yes, I eat oatmeal in the summer! This is my 'go to' breakfast trend at the moment. It's easy, quick, nutritious, low cal! and most important...filling. This morning I added 1 cup of (organic) strawberries and 1/2 cup of blueberries. No added sugar, no added milk. The oatmeal is 100 calories. The strawberries are 46 calories and the blueberries are about 40 calories.

A great breakfast,,,under 200 calories!

    I have some form of oatmeal almost every day. Sometimes the "regular" oatmeal flakes (not the instant stuff) of oats, or wheat, or other types of grains. Here the bio store (organics & fair trade items) has a wide variety of different "flocons"; my current one is einkorn. Sometimes I switch to steel cut oats, or actually the whole groats because I can't get steel cut here. So I buy the whole groats and run them through my spice grinder to break them up a bit. Not quite steel cut oats but good enough. I've also had buckwheat as a morning cereal, which is a different flavor and texture. I always use soy milk to cook whichever hot cereal.

    And, of course, adding fruit is a must!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love oatmeal, too. I make the recipe from the Sparkpeople cookbook. I mix oatmeal, ground flax seed, cinnamon, dried cranberries, and chopped walnuts. It's over 200 calories, but it fills me up. Oh, I also add 30 cal. Silk milk. emoticon

    I eat oatmeal year around too. Looks like a lot of us do. I like the old fashioned or steel cut oats with a little unsweetened soy or almond milk, sometimes a tbsp of chopped or sliced nuts, some fruit, and occasionally add a tbsp of hemp seed or chia, flavor it with cinnamon once in awhile for a change of pace too. It keeps me going!

    Thanks for sharing. I also love oatmeal. In winter when fresh fruit is hard to come by, I love cinnamon (with just a very small amount of sugar) in it. Otherwise I love just about all kinds of fruit in it. emoticon

    I cook with oatmeal. Good way to add good carbs & bulk to anything - as soup.
    Or make own trail mix with oatmeal flakes, nuts, raisins, etc

    I so love oatmeal - it is one of my comfort foods. I often add raspberries and blackberries. You're so right - nothing else needed and it is yummy!

    Sounds good. I just started eating oatmeal. It was on the Spark Solution plan and I discovered that I could eat it. Still not my favorite but at least it is on the list now! emoticon

    Love oatmeal. Switch mine up with chopped apples or raspberries. Almost always add cinnamon for the blood sugar levels.
