This is a rather different product to what we usually have. We normally get regular rolled oats. We do make sure that we don’t buy the instant oats though, as much of the fiber, and nutrients, and cholesterol-reducing properties have been removed from that.
This product is cut, rather than rolled, so takes a little longer to cook, and is a different texture in the mouth.
Easy to make though. Simply pour some boiling water onto the oatmeal, and microwave for 3 minutes.
Stire, and microwave for another two. If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can, of course, make this in a pot as usual. I tend to use a microwave, as I can eat from the dish I cook it in, saving time, effort, water, and dishwashing liquid in washing up. A little more frugalism in action!
It’s supposed to reduce cholesterol. Kathy is good, and has some most every morning. I don’t get up quite so early as a rule, and I am one of the world’s worst for eating breakfast. It’s the one time of the day that I’m not hungry, but this morning, as I did get up early, I had a bowlful with her before she left for work.
I’m now on my second cup of hot fresh coffee, and wading through emails (in between blogging) before I start my day’s work.
