Red, White, and Blue Breakfast

This was my bowl  before mixing.

This is actually the first (and only) way I would eat oatmeal!  I used to not like it all, but I started trying it again in college and came up with this mixture!

  • 1/2 cup oats, a little over 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • about 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • splash of milk on top

The frozen berries cool down the oatmeal so it’s ready to eat right away, and the hot oatmeal thaws the berries enough so they’re not frozen anymore. It’s the perfect balance.

I also had a cup of milk and a hard boiled egg for some protein.

Next up? Cup of coffee and sorting through lots of emails for work. I’m hoping we can sneak to the conference room to watch the Inauguration!
