I treat oatmeal like stir-frys or casseroles and toss whatever I have on hand into the mix. My favorite toppings for hot oatmeal are bananas, blueberries, peaches, cinnamon, peanut butter, almond butter, and chocolate. My favorite toppings for cold oatmeal are greek yogurt, fresh fruit, honey, almonds, cinnamon, cold-brewed coffee, and chia seeds. I pick and choose from the above lists depending on my mood and nutrition goals for the day.
Oatmeal lets me be a lazy cook. It's healthy. It's quick. It tastes good. The only way it could be better is, I dunno, if it made me money and cleaned my house (it provides me with energy to do those things, at least!).
