Morning jumpstart!

Ok, I have to admit that when I first heard about steel cut oats, all I thought was "too much trouble." But now, I'm hooked into eating them  - every morning. In fact, I dropped off a bag of them to my mom the other day, selling her on them as a morning meal because they take only 4 minutes in the microwave. Here's what I do...pour some water into a glass bowl so the oats are covered and then nuke them for 4 minutes. Then, I add a tablespoon of almond butter, unsweetened apple sauce, berries and yogurt....mmmm! what a great way to start the day! How do you start your day? 


  1. With fantastic weather comes fantastic fruit for breaky. Either half cup of fibre1 w/ skim milk and fruit - or I'm a sucker for 12 grains honey bread with egg whites. Keep up the great posts! :)

  2. Hi - if you like oatmeal, you should check out Pro Oats! It's quick oatmeal with added whey protein, and delicious all-natural dried fruit. I created Pro Oats for people who want high-protein oatmeal but don't want all the chemicals that every other brand has. Check it out at http://pro-oats.com
