Sugar-laden cereals and starchy pancakes aren’t going to cut it for the next four weeks. So for breakfast this morning, I made one of our favourite breakfast meals: oatmeal.
If you’re the type that rips open a package to make porridge, I have one thing to say to you.
Stop! Stop right now!
Now go buy some quick-cooking oats and follow this recipe to make your own delicious oatmeal. Not only will it be much cheaper, it will be free from preservatives, sugars and wasteful packaging.
This porridge is in no way even close to the amazing homemade oatmeal my culinary-talented hubby makes, but he uses brown sugar and sweetened dried cranberries (not sugar-free) so I’ll have to bring that to you post-challenge.
