It's well known that oats are high in fiber, but oatmeal is also quick cooking, nutritious, satisfying, versatile, and delicious!

We know oatmeal is good for us, and an ideal breakfast for growing children, but some of us are reluctant to eat it, because of Bad Oatmeal Experiences in the past.
The special breakfast ideas in this enhanced oatmeal recipe may persuade you to give oatmeal another chance.
These enhancements take a little more time, but are worth it for the increased protein, texture and flavor.
If you or your kids still balk at eating oatmeal, in spite of the many benefits, don't despair!
Rolled oats or quick oats are wonderful in anything baked - like oatmeal date nut muffins, or oatmeal cookie recipes! Or in a topping for apple crisp. You don't hear the oatmeal haters complaining about that! We even add oatmeal to tofu burgers!
Eat oatmeal with brown sugar, maple syrup, stevia or agave nectar, with dairy, soy or hemp milk - plain or flavored - or nothing at all! Actually I enjoy it cooked with almond milk & raisins, then sprinkled with dulse flakes. That might seem weird, but it's how I get my iodine.
