I haven't ate any oatmeal in quite a while & I'm thinking of getting some to make for breakfast. I ate some in March while I was in DC on vacation, but it was plain & it didn't taste too good. What is some good stuff to add to it? I've heard that a little cinnamon & sugar makes it taste pretty good. Please give me some suggestions, thanks.

I am allergic to gluten. it is in Most oats.

There is a variety of oats that doesn't have gluten. I have seen it at the market,

I need to try it.

I like my oatmeal with milk and honey.

mix in the honey and then pour the milk, yummy

Nutmeg, Cinnamon and a thin butter patty. Milk around the edges. Just like Grandma used to make. But it's summer. Stick to fruit now, and come back to the oatmeal in the fall. And for all you kids out there, it's "I haven't eaten any oatmeal".

I love oatmeal. But I had to give it up because it turns to sugar very quickly, more
quickly than other starchs. That's plain, no sugar or honey.

When I was growing up this was a staple in my diet. My mother was a Yankee.

I used to melt real butter on top, add brown sugar and then a little milk. Mmmmm

I knew this thread was a ruse, which is why I "tweaked" you at the end of my first post. You're bored, I can tell. But 7/4/70? Seriously? You've never heard APF? I'm reminded of what they say about lawers. They never ask a question that they don't know the answer to.

Get the Old Fashioned kind verses the Instant. It has a better glycemic rating. I add frozen berries (blueberries, blackberries, rasberries, strawberries) and some cinnamon. Add water and microwave for approximately 3 minutes. Milk is opptional. If I want additional protein, I'll add one scoop of vanilla MET-Rx powder after the oatmeal is cooked.

Here's my concoction that I've been doing once or twice a week for years:

Boil water, then mix in oatmeal, pearled barley and wheat germ. Oatmeal is the main ingredient, and I add a couple small handfuls of barley and maybe four tablespoons of wheat germ. The barley and wheat germ provide added fiber and flavor. Once it's done, I use Smart Balance margarine instead of butter. It's got great flavor and is a natural, no cholesterol, non-hydrogenated oil. Then I add cinnamon and either honey or brown sugar as a sweetener depending on my mood that morning. You'll most likely have to hit a health food store to find pearled barley.

Oatmeal is great savory as well as sweet. It can make other foods go farther, like in meat (meatloaf...) and for me veggie burgers. In recipes add ground flax to these also very heart healthy. With any oatmeal all you need to do is add hot water for a period of time. I love it!!!!

Brown sugar is the best.

Bob's Oatmeal is usually found in the "natural" (maybe organic, not sure) foods section. Best tasting brand I've found. I've got a bad stomach and I live on oatmeal sometimes.

Anyway, I cut up some sweet apples into kinda odd shaped cubes (I have to peel em, you don't necessarily have to) and microwave em with a sprinkle of water and a little cinnamon for about 2-3 minutes.

Cook the oatmeal as directed; add however many apples cubes you want, toss in cinnamon to taste and pour some pure maple syrup on top (not too much - hurts your teeth if it's too sweet).

Also great with blueberries, peaches, and strawberries which you don't have to cook.

Almost dessert, only it's not.

I eat the Quaker instant oats every now and then. When I get up at 2 or 3 am in the morning it's hard to do the chef thingy, plus I am in hurry to get to work.

I got Leo eating oatmeal about four days a week now. He's got high cholesterol and a few extra pounds. He likes the Quaker brown sugar instant in a cup($1.02 in Target) and he's lost about 10 pounds(yeah!)--a lot fewer calories than an egg sandwich. Now I have to coax him back to the MD to see if the cholesterol has gone down.

There are different flavor packets by Quaker Oats. My favorite is maple and brown sugar.

I have oatmeal every morning with a few exceptions. I have instant maple brown sugar - (the Low Sugar variety) during the week and plain steel cut at home when I have the time to cook it on the stove- half water half milk and I do add some brown sugar but not much. To both kinds I add a handful of almonds and craisins to give it texture and flavor. Of course, now that blueberries are abundant in the stores at reasonable prices, I prefer them to the craisins.

Work friends turned me on the benefit of steel cut oats this spring, and I have them every morning with roasted flaxseed, almonds, and raisins--organic whenever possible. Blueberries is a darn nice idea, too--and I was just at the store this morning...

That sounds exactly like this tastes.
