Basic oatmeal aka your new breakfast

If you want to change up your diet and start to eat maybe a little bit more healthier – breakfast is a good place to start.

The first new breakfast meal I tried was oatmeal or oat porridge. I started with the instand oatmeal flakes but quickly changed to the more flavorful rolled oats and steel cut oats – which also have more bite and are more filling.

From then on it was serious business. Nothing is better than a warming bowl in the morning. We even got a small pan dedicated to morning oat.

You can go all sorts of ways with this – change up your flavors and toppings the way you like. Frozen fruit works fine if fresh is not at hand. The warm oat will defrost it.

This recipe is a pretty simple basic one. And once you get the hang of it you can enjoy this within five minutes of cooking. It’s a big portion, but you can always bring the leftovers to enjoy as a snack later.
