My usual topping for oatmeal

My usual topping for oatmeal and boxed cereal consists of 2 tablespoons each of chopped walnuts, chopped dates, chopped almonds, and wheat germ to which I add a small amount of honey (dates are sweet so it does not take much) and a splash of milk. Those toppings add to the fiber, protein and vitamins And, no, I do not eat that much; that is two meals. Sometimes I use herbs and spices to make oatmeal or omelets, etc. by smelling the likely choices and then using what appeals to me best at the time. Try adding so jam or compote just remember that you should not need as much or any sweetener. One of my favorites is apricot. Tomorrow I am going to try canned pineapple chunks in their own juice that have been slightly blended. I know that canned pineapple comes in pieces smaller pieces, but I find that those smaller pieces have more of the tougher parts of a pineapple in with them.

I never ate oatmeal until I arrived in America. We ate porridge with fat-free milk, (we had our own dairy). Since I cannot find the makings for porridge I now enjoy oatmeal with milk.

I cook my oatmeal one serving

I cook my oatmeal one serving at a time in the microwave. I only use regular, not instant oats. When done, I add about a tablespoon of brown sugar and about a tablespoon or margarine. I mix them through thoroughly. Then sometimes add a little bit of canned fruit. If I want to add applesauce, I don't add the brown sugar nor the margarine; there's enough sweetness and fat in the sauce.
