Oatmeal love it or hate it?

Oatmeal, some love it some hate it. I used to be in the hate category but for some reason this year I’ve grown to love oatmeal even when it’s hot and summery. I have a few favorite combinations but today I want to share with you my creamy strawberry oatmeal recipe.

How not to make this oatmeal

This is NOT microwave oatmeal. I avoid using the microwave and choose to never cook with it. If microwaving is your thing, give it a go. Stop and stir frequently to prevent the oats from boiling over. Let me know how it turns out.

On the stovetop, it takes under 15 minutes to make depending on how much you want to make. If you double the recipe it would only add a fe minutes onto your cooking time.

Oatmeal doesn’t keep me full

I hear ya! I used to struggle with oats not keeping me full for long enough periods. However, if I add fat to my oatmeal I find it keeps me full for longer.

If you’re having that same struggle, try adding fat in the form of coconut cream or a nut/seed butter of your choice. Also, eat a decent portion of oatmeal. A fruit snack for 2-4 hours after oatmeal is always a good idea to keep you going until lunch.

In a world of GMO and pesticides

We are living in a time where GMO’s (genetically engineered organisms) are present in so many of our supermarket foods. Look for GMO free oats and buy gluten-free if you are sticking to a gluten-free diet.

As for berries, these fall under the dirty dozen which means that they get heavily sprayed with pesticides. If you are going to consume berries, I highly suggest buying organic berries.

If your goal is to eat a healthy and clean diet, avoiding the dirty dozen and buying these organic is a good principle to buy according to.
