Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! However, unfortunately, most of my daily allotted calories are used up during this meal.

Recently I rediscovered oatmeal. I had it this morning with raisins and canned pears. No added sugar. It was delicious!

Can you share some of your favorite oatmeal recipes, without added sugar? Thank you.

I'm not sure if honey counts as "without sugar" but I usually put a tsp of that in my oatmeal and the natural sweetener Stevia. Sometimes I put in some chopped dates instead of the honey. I also like to add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed or sesame seeds for added nutrition and allow extra water so consistency is not too thick.

From the diet nag: Put Oats In Your Cold Morning Feedbag
A hot stick to the ribs breakfast doesnít have to be loaded with fat, calories and sugar. Good old fashioned oatmeal is a great source of complex carbohydrates (the good kind) that will get your day of to a great start and curb potential cravings in the first part of your day. Plain instant oatmeal in a cup with some added raisins and even a few walnuts makes a great quick breakfast. Try some other dried fruits for variety. The oats also add some other healthy benefits to your diet. Donít do it every day, but itís a great treat on a cold morning.

TODAY: DONíT FORGET TO EXERCISE, EVEN IF ITíS JUST GOING UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS A FEW TIMES.

I feel like I'm always going up and down steps between going to the basement -- where Steven plays his xbox and the cats are -- up to the second floor where our bedroom is and then to the attic - where Katey's room is.

I do mine with diced apple -- cinnamon and almonds ~~~ OR....PB---apple and some type of nut for crunch ~~~~ OR... Blueberries and almonds or walnuts

Lots of good ideas, and until recently this was my main breakfast....then grandson came along and it is easier - and quieter- to grab a bowl of cereal....going back to oatmeal--stay full longer --- and warmer [if that makes any sense at all]

I am going to try this one.


Eggs-n-Oats

1 egg
2 egg whites
1/2 c. rolled oats
2 oz skim milk (just more than a splash)

Mix all ingredients well.

Spray non-stick spray in frying pan. Add all ingredients; scramble as you would with ordinary eggs. When eggs-n-oats reach desired texture (just like scrambled eggs--wet, dry, somewhere in between), remove from heat, plate.

There are lots of options for seasoning such as cayenne pepper, hot sauce, honey, berries, banana, cinnamon, vanilla, etc.
