Eating breakfast is just not a natural thing for me. I am not, and have never been, a morning person. Therefore, I rarely make the time to make breakfast in the morning.
Lately, I decided it was time to get healthier and lose a few pounds. It's a fact, and it makes sense that eating a healthy breakfast is a smart and healthy way to start each day. Now, I force myself to eat a banana, a bowl of cereal.....whatever.
It's a really good thing that I have the most thoughtful and amazing husband in the world! Before heading off to work in the morning, he made time to make me oatmeal. He knows that I would much rather sleep in 30 minutes rather than wake up early and prepare something.
Not only did he set up a bowl with oatmeal, but he fixed it up for me complete with walnuts, raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon, (that's the love part!) all I had to do was add the hot water.
1 cup of dry Quaker oats
2 cups water (only use part of it)
Combine oats with enough hot water to just cover the oats. Add a little more water, or milk if you like it creamier. Add raisins and walnuts, let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon and let sit for another 3 minutes or until oats are soft and creamy.
Enjoy and have a great day!
