Oatmeal – From Boring to Fabulous

Is oatmeal one of your breakfast staples?  It is for me, too; and while I love a nice hot bowl of oatmeal, it can be quite boring and monotonous to eat it every day.  It doesn’t have to be that way (monotonous).

While many days I may just drizzle a bit of honey and add some milk to my oatmeal; I really love adding chopped fresh fruits of all sorts to my oatmeal, then topping with a bit of cinnamon.  I get one of my “fruit servings” for the day, along with the fiber from the oatmeal, and I am good to go for the morning!

Today, I chopped up an apple to add to my oatmeal.  Now, I am usually get the apples chopped and into the oatmeal/water before I put it on the stove to cook.  this not only softens the apples a tad, but also allows some of the sugars from the apple to infuse into the oatmeal.  Today the apple was a bit of an after-thought; but it was still yummy!

What other fruits do you add to your morning oatmeal?  Bananas, pears, peaches, etc?
