This is my post for ARF/5-A-Day Tuesdays later tonight over at Sweetnicks. ARF stands for antioxidant rich food.
I'm getting ready to go on vacation and haven't been cooking much lately, and you can see that in the interest of having a post I've actually posted a 'recipe' for a bowl of oatmeal. Talk about scrapping the bottom of the blogging barrel. What's next, a recipe for ice water??
So here is my bowl of oatmeal dressed up to qualify as an ARF post. Despite the fact that it's so easy to prepare, otameal really does make a nice breakfast. After eating oatmeal for breakfast it's unlikely that you will be hungry anytime before lunch. It really is very satisfying, yummy and actually is good for you.
Oatmeal with Blueberries and Cream
1/2 cup oats
1 cup water
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh are the best, but I used frozen)
2 tbs. light cream.
Mix together oatmeal and water and cook about 5 minutes over medium heat.
If you are using frozen blueberries, Defrost them in the microwave while the oatmeal is cooking.
When the oatmeal is cooked, put it into a bowl, add the blueberries, and then pour on the cream. Optionally, add a teaspoon of sugar if you like.
