Oatmeal is a breakfast staple. We have instant oats, overnight oats, oatmeal bars, and good old fashioned Quaker oats in the iconic cardboard canister.
Oatmeal is a great way to start the day, as it is full of healthy fiber, and protein. Classic toppings tend to err on the sweet side, with fruit, nuts, and brown sugar being the most popular. This can cause spikes in blood sugar, and depending on how much of sweet stuff you are using, it can turn your healthy breakfast into a calorie bomb.
Maybe it’s time to rethink the oats, by creating savory versions that are filling and nutritionally balanced. These taste so good, you might want to consider oatmeal for dinner!
