I am breakfast challenged.
I don’t enjoy eating it.
I never have.
I am trying to eat a healthy breakfast each morning.
Allot of times I eat leftover dinner – and while eating Salmon at 8AM seems weird, it doesn’t bother me. But – I’m attempting to be healthy – and so… I’m experimenting with traditional breakfast foods. Plus – the traditional breakfast items seem to mesh better with the morning coffee.
I have a friend who eats Raisan Bran or oatmeal every morning for breakfast. With out fail. That’s what he eats. Every. Morning.
I plan on trying out a Cheerios mix some mornings, and experimenting with oatmeal flavors. I already make a pumpkin oatmeal that isn’t terrible, but there has to be other options. With that – I saw a new oatmeal concept yesterday, and decided to try it out this morning, and I’m happy to say… I like it. I don’t love it, but I like it.
Here it is:
1/2 cup of quick cooking rolled oats
1 cup of apple juice
a sprinkle of nutmeg
a sprinkle or 3 of cinnamon
Microwave for… however long it takes until it looks like the consistency of oatmeal you want. 30 seconds before that time, drop in a small, like 2 teaspoons of butter and stir it up a little. When it hits your magic consistency, sprinkle some brown sugar on top.

Overall – tasty, very sweet, but better than the average oats.
