Oat What a Feeling!
To add some flavor to your oatmeal, add milk and cinnamon or a handful of fresh fruit. Adding your favorite flavored protein powder to oatmeal after it cooks helps bump up the protein in your meal while adding minimal calories. The combination of fiber and protein can help keep your appetite at bay for hours - definitely a perk when trying to stick to a diet. If you don't like hot cereal, then try incorporating oatmeal in other ways. Cook rolled oats into oatmeal-raisin cookies. Use oats as an extender, like you would bread crumbs, in recipes like meatloaf. Thicken soups and stews with oat flour instead of cornstarch. There are plenty of ways to feel your oats!
