    I eat this every AM. I use less water, no butter and add egg white for protein... 1/2 cup. It is super tasty and I feel very healthy eating it! It makes about 2 weeks of breakfasts and keeps well in the fridge, heats up in the micro for a quick eat. - 12/31/10

  • Very satisfying breakfast. I mixed in a small container of blueberry-pomegranate applesauce and that really smooths out the oatmeal and gives it a great sweetness. - 5/1/11
