I’m about halfway through my tub of Oatmeal, which means I’m about a month in to my challenge. I’m not bored with my combos yet, but it’s dangerously close. I’ve mainly been doing one of two things to take my breakfast up a notch – adding berries OR adding half a banana and a dash of nutmeg. The latter version tastes a bit like banana bread. Delish!
I did give the pumpkin “pie” oatmeal that my friend Kate recommended in my last post, but I have to say that it wasn’t my favorite. I could never get the sweetness to vegetable ratio right, so it just tasted starchy. Plus, it made my breakfast an unsettling neon orange color.
Any other thoughts for me as I start month 2? I’m desperate for a new option!
i love oatmeal, have you tried putting eggs in your oatmeal? I put eggehite in it to make it fluffier and add bananas and almond butter. it’s absolutely amazing! oatmeal never gets old to me, their are so many ways to use it and eat it 🙂 good luck with your challenge
I’ve never tried it with eggs. How would you do it? It sounds interesting. Does it end up looking like a cookie??
haha, it doesn’t turn out into a cookie. I place a third cup of egg whites into half a cup of oats and then also 1/2 cup of milk and mix it together! add more water or milk if you want it creamier and then add bananas at the end. it’s delicious
Thanks for the tip! I’ll give it a shot!
