I was 22 the first time I tried oatmeal. Isn’t that crazy? How can I have gone 22 years without this easy almost self-making meal that dominates Norwegian homes? It’s not THAT crazy seeing as I’m -not- from a Norwegian home, but still.
There are many many ways of making oatmeal, and I have yet to start experimenting, as I’m still getting used to the normal way. (Soy)Milk + salt + oatmeal = yum. Easy.
The best to have this is a dash of butter on top and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top, but I have this thing where if something does nothing good for your body, I can’t have it. And that’s the way with butter. I can have butter in food where it disappears and I can’t see it anymore, but I can’t visibly have butter without feeling guilty. I’m crazy, I know.
Thus I googled a bit and saw that bodybuilders and gym-fanatics usually put a spoon of proteins in the porridge and then have fruit on top, so I thought I’d try it and now it’s what I have.
I put strawberry jam on top with bananas. It’s awesome for lunch, especially if you’re going to work out a couple of hours after. Keeps your energy up and it’s not bad for you! We love food that’s not bad for us! Yey!
