Oatmeal is amazing breakfast food if you do it right. Quick and instant oats are mere convenience foods. Meant only to save time, these oat incarnations are close to tasteless and textureless. But whole oats are quite another thing. They are low on the glycemic index which means they won’t raise your blood sugar quickly. They have staying power. On the days we have oats for breakfast, I can go quite a while before needing a snack.


Buy some Irish-style oats and start the night before. Add oats and equal parts warm water to a pan. Add a tablespoon or so of whole milk. Cover and leave out overnight. In the morning add the same amount of water again and a pinch of salt. Bring it up to bubbling on the stovetop and bubble, stirring, for three minutes.


We add heavy cream, nuts and dried fruit. Delicious!


Husband has informed me that my photo of our breakfast is not very appetizing! Sorry about that!
