The oatmeal thread

So I have a new love in my life…yep, it’s oatmeal.

Oatmeal is so versatile.  It’s like the chili of breakfast food.  I can throw lots of yummy stuff in the pot and it tastes amazing!

Here is a list of the yummy things you can add to make a low point (and filling!) breakfast:

1/2 banana


canned pumpkin

semi-sweet chocolate chips

pb chips

mini marshmallows


chocolate syrup, maple syrup, regular syrup


graham crackers

marshmallow fluff

pb (and lots of it!)

vanilla soy milk

raisins and brown sugar

muffin crumbles



cottage cheese


chocolate bar pieces

These are the items I have experimented with lately.  I like to keep my oatmeal under 3 points.  Right now I have been eating a lot of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a teaspoon of pb in my oatmeal.

What are your favorite things to add?


Out and ab “oat”

Today I had a bowl of s’moates and then I went to Target and Trader Joes.  I enjoyed the chocolate chips, marshmallows and oatmeal in my sweats then got up and changed before going to the stores.  I am now finally going to take a shower and getting ready to go to the mall.  I am going to try to find a dress for Valentine’s Day and get a haircut!
