I’d been regularly eating oatmeal for breakfast for four years or so til this spring (i.e., before I knew I was pregnant) — when I suddenly couldn’t stomach oats.
I wasn’t sure if it was the time of year– oats felt too heavy in warmer weather — or un-diagnosed first-trimester gag-reflexes … or maybe I was just sick of the same breakfast day in and day out … but whatever the case, my oats canister remained untouched for six months.
I love, love, love oatmeal and eat it nearly every morning for breakfast.
With all the variations out there, I’m never bored and there’s nothing like it, especially in the chilly fall/winter months.
To get in the holiday spirit, this morning I decided to add a splash of Silk Nog (which I yapped about here last year) into a packet of Quaker High Fiber Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal for a quickie breakfast.
