Nothing! Seriously - Nada, Nen, Nichts or any other way to say it - that's what I've got. So for a check in I am going to tell you about oatmeal. Yep, oatmeal. Exciting, huh? You can barely stand it? Well, here we go...
Oatmeal is good for you. Lots of reasons - you can find the list if ya wanna on the net or just trust me. I like oatmeal and used to have it in the instant packages in the morning. Well, shockingly it started tasting sweet to me. Too sweet. Weird, but true (don't worry I still LOVE candy). So I needed to come up with a new breakfast "thing", but it was rough and figured out I wanted oatmeal. (I know you can hardly stand the excitement!)
So, I now make my own oatmeal in the microwave. Here's what I do Q*auker Oat$ 1 minute variety. I put 1/2 cup into a 2-cup microwaveable container (it's important it's 2 cups in size at least due to "oat expansion"). 1 cup of unsweentened almond b*reeze (it's nutty and only 80 cals, but you can use milk or water or whatever you want), and a dash of salt. I then put in the microwave for 2 mins. YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT. TRUST ME! It will make a mess if you don't. Usually about 1 min in, it will start expanding and I mix it to kinda deflate it. I continue to monitor it and mix it periodically. I like it at about 2 mins and 15 seconds, but I think there is a dependency to your microwave and also your personal preference.
But it looks so runny!!! Yep, cause it is molten lava at this point! Let it sit for a minute or two and it will be thicker. Depending on my mood, I'll add some dried fruit, cinammon, nuts, or whatever striikes my fancy.
It makes a pretty big serving (1 cup I'd say). Sometimes I eat it all, other times I don't. I just eat what I want and toss the rest. I'm just too lazy to figure out the right ratio to make less and usually there is only a few spoonfuls left. Enjoy!
