ohmy.gif Oh my, This is really delicious! Thanks for posting this, it is so simple. The best part about it is that adding the peanut butter really makes this super satisfying! I have found that when I eat this for breakfast (20 minutes after my morning piece of fruit, of course), that I am not hungry for at least 2-3 hours afterward! I also add a teaspoon full of ground flax seed as well to get extra Omega 3.
I try to have my lunch already made or planned so that when im ready for lunch, there is no rummaging through the fridge to temp me to have something else. Unfortunately,my hubby is NOT on this WOE and there is temptation in every cabinet, and on every shelf of the fridge. If anyone has a simular situation and has any ideas that works for them, I would really love to hear about it. Also, this oatmeal has become my sons favorite breakfast. He doesnt even like the packaged packets of oatmeal that has a bunch of sugar in it anymore. Great recipe! Thanks again.
