Oatmeal Yum! Yums!
“Lift your heavy eyelids, IT’S WAKE UP TIME!!” morning shouts.
“Ahh, I don’t want to get out of bed. I just want to sleep more. Leave me the *#$@ alone, please,” I add a touch of politeness, to help curb the inner-morning beast.
“Fine, if you won’t listen to me, you’ll listen to your hungry gut.”
“Yo son, it’s yo’ boy, Gut! You gotta get up! You got them Oatmeal Yum! Yums! waiting for you. Yum, Yums, son. Yum Yums,” my gut says, in it’s odd, hood-rat, dialect.
“Oatmeal Yum Yums, you’re right. I should get up,” I say as I roll out of bed.
In my long search, for what I believe to be, the healthiest, quickest and tastiest morning meal, I finally came across the whole grain oat. A half-cup of oats dry will yield a large breakfast serving, with a high percentage of Dietary Fiber (20%*), little fat (4%*) and a hardy 6g of protein. BUT who wants to eat those bland, pasty oats, straight up? I did for a little while, but quickly started to search for things to add to my blah oats.
An apple came first, followed by a banana (fiber, some carbs and that tasty, natural sugar,) and finally a handful of almonds (boost the protein level and provide some essential fats, which will help in digesting the vitamins packed in the fruits). A dash of cinnamon (adding a minuscule amount of fiber and carbs) sealed the deal on what is now known as Oatmeal Yum Yums!
OATMEAL YUM YUMS!!
½ cup Instant Organic Oats**
¼ cup Almonds
dash of cinnamon
Boil some water. Chop up the fruit however you like. Add hot water to Oats, let sit for 1-2 minutes.
If I have an extra minute I will split the apple, then skin it. Eat the peels while the water boils and chop the meaty apple insides up nicely.
Add fruit, nuts and cinnamon. Mix that goodness up all lovely. Eat this tasty blend, be surprised at how naturally sweet it is and how long lasting your fullness will last. Bom! Bom! Son. Bom. Bom.

**The difference between “Instant Oats” and “Regular Oats” is simply that instant oats are chopped and rolled thin, then cooked and dried again, making them cook SUPER fast, like a ninja.
