Day 13 - Oatmeal for Breakfast

Yesterday was one of those days where life just throws a curveball, and you either have to catch it, or not...but generally it's a deal with it day.  I had to drop everything to deal with the issue, and all my plans for the day just went out the window.

That said, we had spaghetti for dinner. With that "very expensive but I bought it because my son was selling it" sauce mix. So, pretty basic--spaghetti with Puttanesca sauce.

But, I still wanted to share some food pics with you. Of my breakfast. Many years ago, after my son was born, I hit upon a great breakfast that helped my lose the baby weight. Oatmeal. I know, so basic, right? But still...I love oatmeal. I've been buying it in bulk from the grocery (a 50lb bag). Partly because I feed my dogs oatmeal, but also because my family loves oatmeal, too. So what I do is make my bowl of oatmeal (1/3 cup oats & 2/3 cup water in a shallow bowl. Cook in microwave on 50% power for 5 minutes), add sweetener of choice (mine is brown sugar, about 1 tbsp), sprinkle with dried fruits and nuts.

This adds much needed fiber and fruit to my diet. And it tastes good. It is also awesome using brown rice in place of the oatmeal.

Try it. You might like it!
