    Ideas to make oatmeal better


    Hey guys, anyone have any good recipes or ideas on how to make oatmeal in the morning more tolerable? Without being able to add much sugar to it, I think I'd enjoy eating cottage cheese over oatmeal. Does everyone use sugar because its the beginning of the day or do you grin and bear it and eat it plain?

    a cup of oats with 1/4 cup cottage cheese, no sugar preserves,
    and a bit of splenda is pretty good.

    PB is addable, but it really doesnt add a lot of flavor and for me is a waste of
    a PB serving.

    If you add salt to things, 3 packets of splenda and a 1/4 - 1/2 tsp of salt
    in 1 cup of oats is awesome alone. THe salt really does wonders.

    If you eat eggs as well, you could have oatmeal pancakes.

    takes some time.

    And last, you could make some oatmeal protein energy bars, there are tons
    of recipes for these floating around. The ones with brown rice syrup are best
    with some splenda as well.

    cook your oatmeal in a big pot

    add:

    egg whites (stir them in. tastes good. i swear)
    splenda
    banana flavored protein powder (micellar casein)
    banana slices

    when you are done, you will have something that is kind of like a sweet banana porridge, and reminiscent of tapioca pudding as well

    add a bit of cinnamon or vanilla extract if you want

    this is REALLY good. i swear.

    Apples and cinammon is a good addition. Along with a bit of dry cottage cheese and vanilla or strawberry whey stirred in, I find that to taste quite good. I prepare my oats the night before eating them, and eat them cold. I prefer the taste/texture once it's been refrigerated overnight. I finally top it off with some sugar free pancake syrup for a bit of added sweetness, bit without any actual sugar.

    You can also try cinnamon in place of the preserves. Add milk if it's too dry.


    Another thing you can do is just blend it all up. Oats, whey, milk, splenda. Could add fruit or cinnamon, cottage cheese(you won't taste it), eggs, etc. It's a good thing to drink on the way to work.

    re


    I use maple syrup made from splenda or sorbitol, it is only 10-35 calories per serving depending on the brand, & it makes eating oatmeal something to look forward too.I eat it as my morning dessert, i eat my eags, then turkey, & save the oatmeal for last. in the past i have used protein powders & had to force myself to eat it. hope that helps.

    I guess I am the odd one. I enjoy oats plain. Especially if they are rolled oats. I love the texture when its warm. Of course, I sometimes dress it up with the usual spices, sweetners and maybe some raisins, apples or cranberries.
    I even like it when its cold. Somehow, its no different to me than a slice of bread. Except, its a lot more nutritious.
    Funny thing, though, I hate quick cooked packets of oats. They taste like mush. I can understand why no one would like them.
    Of course, you can always eat a cookie...

    Man, that's awesome to see a guy who's obviously so passionate about his oatmeal. But your cookie statement just got my mind stuck on one thought, oatmeal cookies!

    Hey, you have to savor every moment, and every morsal. Otherwise, why are we doing this?
    And wouldn't an oatmeal cookie sound good right? Thank goodness for bulking phases!

    That actually sounds way beyond gross. OOPS! I meant that sounds like that might seriously offend my tastebuds, and my digestive system. I might be bulking, but not that much!

    I throw it in the blender, raw, with protein powder. Pulse it a few times and drink it.

    Leave it to Ben & Jerry to come with yet another off-the-wall ice cream mix. But, how much of it do you really think is actually oatmeal?

    Call me crazy, but I love this:

    1 cup oatmeal
    1.5 cups sweet corn
    2 cups low-fat low-sodium chicken broth

    Throw it all in a bowl, microwave for 7ish minutes, stirring once or twice. I like to add pepper and maybe a little basil.

    A nice dash of salt makes a HUGE difference in the flavor of the oats, along with a few packets of splenda.

    IF you dont like the glopyness of cooked oats (I dont) heat some skim milk in the ol micro then add it to the dry oats (usualy with some splenda and some pumpkin pie spice). add enough milk so that its kinda liquidy and eat immediatly. good stuff

    I make my pancake by just throwing my oats in egg whites (sometimes I'll grind them in a coffe grinder first) and stirring. Then dump on frying pan and cut into patties. Add Splenda, cinnamon, vanilla and S/F syrup.....MMMMMMM....waffle run-off
