Preparing an oatmeal breakfast

  1. Boil a cup (or little more) water to bubble (ratio: 1:2 oats-to-liquid). I usually use a cup of water with a half cup of oatmeal.
  2. Add a bowl of rolled raw oatmeal and bring the heat down to LOW for simmering.
    1. Add a pinch of salt and other powdered spices
    2. Wait 5 minutes (swirl every minute or so with a wooden spoon so they don’t stick to the bottom) – time can vary depending on your heat and the size of the pot
  3. Serve it in your favorite bowl
  4. Add your poison mix, milk, and toppings. Just don’t over do anything.
  5. Enjoy

Notes to have it stay healthy:

  • A half-cup of oatmeal is considered to be 1 serving (150 cal)
  • Instead of sugar or honey, try  cinnamon, (unsweetened) cocoa powder, or vanilla extract
  • Use fresh or frozen fruit rather than dried fruit (they have more calories)
  • Don’t overdo sweets or nuts

Some recommendations for topping:

  • Apples, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, banana
  • Walnuts, pecans
  • Kimchi (probiotics!)
  • Fried or boiled egg (protein!)
