Happy Groundhog err,,, I mean Sunday folks grin2

Do you folks eat oatmeal or cereal? I love oatmeal, never was into cereal myself as grew up on a farm.

I usually have a apple or some yogurt with my oatmeal. How about the BITOG faithful?

Cereal has too much sugar and Oats have excessive levels of Round-Up. LINK

Oatmeal is far healthier in most cases. And avoid the fluffy processed Quaker Oats....or Granola's loaded with sugars....and get something closer to the original Oat grain such as Steel Cut Oats.

This is my breakfast for everyday yes 7 days a week months on end. Many people in fitness lifestyle ar gym/athletes many will eat a constant breakfast day in and day out.
This is my daily breakfast at 5am every morning I do not eat till lunch at 11:30 no sacks also a meal that is constant every day of the week

Yes on a scale every morning

20 grams dry measured Quaker quick oats or a Bobs Red Mill equivalent
30 grams Bobs Red Mill 7 grain or the 10 grain Hot cereal
155 grams boiling water
Pinch salt
3 eggs

Add dry contents and water in bowl microwave 1min 30 seconds covered
Let Stan at least 1to2 minutes

In pan while in oatmeal’s in microwave I cook 3 over easy eggs
Add in bowl stirred in and eat


I enjoy this everyday yes wife and kids think I’m nuts and rip into me but they do not live my lifestyle people wonder how it’s possible to live a lean fit lifestyle it’s not difficult at all and working out or cardio for that matter has much or anything to do with it.

Don't think I ever had oatmeal. When I see pictures of it, it looks like wallpaper paste so I pass. I'll have cereal as a snack out of the box, but not for breakfast. I never understood American's penchant to drown their cereal with milk though. I mean, if I want cold soup I'll get Vichyssoise.

I typically alternate between oatmeal with milk and berries; and granola with plain yogurt and berries.

Steel cut Oat meal for me. The extra fiber wrapped around the oats slows the absorption and helps me control my blood sugar.

Oatmeal with dried cranberries and pecans. Good breakfast for me.

Lately half a bowl of instant plain oatmeal(uncooked) combined with half a bowl of Aldi bran flakes, sprinkled with cinnamon, a little organic Aldi peanut butter(pretty runny since only ingredients are peanuts and sea salt) drizzled on top, a tiny bit of honey if I have it in stock, then filler up with some skim milk. Sounds more complicated than it really is and no cooking required. smile

Although I may switch to some Bob's Red Mill oatmeal to see if I can notice a difference. I had it awhile back but it seemed the same so who knows.

I feel the Steel Cut from Bobs is the gold standard the rolled I can’t tell difference I also like the Scottish oatmeal from Bobs
