Rachel's Morning Oatmeal Base Recipe

Submitted by: RACHELRHF

Introduction

This is the base recipe for the oatmeal I eat for breakfast. It makes a very large serving, but it keeps me on track for the whole day, so it's worth it. I add freshly sliced or chopped seasonal fruit as soon as it comes out of the microwave. If I'm off to do something really strenuous I might add honey or maple syrup instead. [Note: nutritional info is for the oatmeal base only, not add-ins like fruit or syrup.]

Don't skip the pinch of salt. It really heightens the flavor of the other ingredients, and the amount of sodium it adds is quite small.
