Thread: Rediscovered Breakfast

    Rediscovered Breakfast

    I gotta admit, I have never liked breakfast. Oh maybe as a kid I did, but as soon as I discovered coffee, its always been a coffee kind of morning. I am not sure why, but one day a month or so ago, I was starved and grabbed some oatmeal that we had for Alyson.

    I think I am addicted.

    My wife thinks I am foolish. Its so cheap and simple. For a $1.50 I can get a big can of store-brand rolled oats. After that its a splash of milk, a dash of molasses and 45 seconds later I'm having my breakfast. The stuff sticks to your ribs too, giving you energy and keeping away those morning hunger pains.

    Try it, you might like it.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Bought time you had breakfast Travis. I have my oat mean every day. The only thing is there is brown sugar in mine instead of molasses.

    eating alot of fiber for breakfast, the way to better health, take it from a diverticulitis sufferer, it aint no picnic, so eat that high fiber breakfast every day.

    Personally I prefer to add a handful of golden raisons, a packet of Splinda, a generous dash of Cinnamon and milk to 1/2 cup of Oats. Nuke for 125 and enjoy. Every day will reduce your Cholesterol level.

    In the summer I switch to Cherrios

    My total Cholesterol level is under 100, Bet you can't say that...

    Yes, store brand + brown sugar splenda + ground cinnamon = good stuff

    Can you tell I was once a math major?

    Oatmeal is the real thing. I like it with a spoon of peanut butter and a little brown sugar.The next time I might try a little molasses.

    I do a 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (omega 3's), and 1/4 dried cranberries every day. Been doing it for almost two years. Had a cholesterol of about 240 prior, but now below 200, so I'm sold.

    Being Diabetic, real sugars are pretty much a, and I have pretty much weaned myself from even the Splenda on things too, Sooooooo....every morning for me it has been 1/2 cup "store brand" rolled oats + 1/2 banana + a few mixed nuts + 1 tbsp real butter + a healthy amount of Cinnamon, Nuke it and make 1 pot of coffee. Been doing that for two years now. It's not a cure all, but it helps.

    I think while growing up my mom made oatmeal at least 364 days a year. I hated it and didn't touch the stuff for years after leaving the nest. But a couple years ago I found out I had high cholesterol, 250 range, so I started trying to eat healthy, including a lot of good old oatmeal. I've been able to keep my cholesterol down in the 200 range without any drugs so far but I still splurge and treat myself to some Jimmie Dean, eggs, and hash browns about once a month, just so I don't forget what a good breakfast tastes like.
