GotBoost: What is the difference between OATMEL and CARDBOARD? This stuff is gross!

Today I found out why I hated oatmeal when I was a kid...

Next time I buy a box, I'll open the box, throw away the oatmeal, and add a 1/2 cup of water to the box, stir, and heat...lol

Really though, am I just buying the wrong kind? (quaker is the only kind I know of)

Is there a 'Good' type of oatmeal to get?

IS there a different meal that I could eat in place of oatmeal? I dont think I could stand this stuff more than once a week...

Thanks!
Shawn

I always add just a little margarine and some Equal sweetner. That usually "livens" it up a bit. Granted the margarine isn't the best thing for a healthy diet so I usually try to cram it down without any.

Plain oatmeal is a bit bland and somewhat of an aquired taste, but also beware of the flavored kind too, they put all sorts of refined sugar in there. To make mine a little more palatable in the morning I add a tablespoon of Glutamine, a scoop of protien (whatever flavor I have at the time, and a tablespoon or two of pure honey. The honey is a sugar, but it's alot better for you than the processed stuff(not quite as glycemic), and you can control the quantity so that your breakfast isn't super saturated in it.

hmmm, that's a pretty good idea.

I would never add margarine to anything. Butter is still ok if you don't use alot. Half a pat is more than enough and still not that high in fat. Everything in moderation is the key IMO.

If you want good tasting oatmeal (read that bad for you) then do this: use the water and the oatmeal like normal then add about a 1/2 cup or a little more of milk and a couple of spools of margarine, and a lot of sugar. Tastes great but not somthing you need to be eating if you are trying to be all that healthy.

I did add a scoop of protein to it once and it made it taste "different". Might try that.
