    Strawberry Oatmeal






    Ok I just made this today and I had to share:

    Measure out your portion of oatmeal
    And however many frozen strawberries your diet allows (I used 6)
    Add less water than usual (maybe half)

    Microwave for 1-2min longer than your usual time
    Sweeten to taste (I used splenda)
    Mash strawberries w/ your spoon and mix

    OMG! The strawberries defrost and their juices flavor the oatmeal, and it is sooo good!
    U need less water because of the water from the strawberries and need more time bc the strawberries need to defrost (obviously )

    Variations:
    add cocoa for "choc covered strawberry" flavor
    experiment w different extracts such as pineapple, coconut, banana, vanilla, whatever your heart desires!

    YUMMY!!!!!!
    I add berries on top of my oats sometimes and then stir em in... blueberries and raspberries rock.. and strawberries alone kill! especially if you add in some vanilla extract and splenda.
    tahnks for the suggestion Greek!

    I just put a bit of water in the microwave, heat it up. THEN, i stir the protein with the water, until smooth. I add THAT mixture to the already cooked oats. I like my oats kinda watery, and a little lumpy, my beau thinks it looks nasty. I think it tastes like heaven. CRAP. Now Im craving oaties and its my no carb day.

    You know I was making oats just now and something just jumped in front of my face....the damn jar of skippy chunky peanut butter....

    About a tablespoon later and some sweetner....oh man that's better than I thought.

    How bad is peanut butter for you anyways (going to get natural later today btw)?

    I finally figured out that if you cook the oatmeal first and use half the amount of water more than required, then add the protein after you've cooked it, that it turns out pretty well.

    I also add 3 packets of splenda and some fresh strawberries on top. Yum!
