Cream of Wheat

I’ve mentioned that I cannot get myself to appreciate oatmeal lately icon sad Cream of Wheat

But, I thought I’d give it one more try since I had the ripest banana on my counter. We all know bananas like this deserve to fulfill there destiny to be made into whipped oats…IMG 7205 thumb Cream of Wheat

So I made oat bran. In addition to the ripe banana I added a packet of stevia and some almond milk. It was so sweet and creamy. It reminded me of the Cream of Wheat my mom used to make us when we were kids (I think we used a lot of sugar!). IMG 7203 thumb Cream of Wheat

Run: This morning I did 6 miles in about 55 minutes. I’m slowly getting faster icon wink Cream of Wheat

I still need to pack and stop at the bank before I head to the airport! I better get moving…

I’ll probably see you again in the air!

    Have you tried cottage cheese, a bit of sweetner, and blubes in your oatmeal? I think I first saw that combo on Carrots n’ Cake and it’s really good! It definitely reminds me of a less rich cheese cake. It’s really good with strawberries too!

    On the other hand, there are so many lovely breakfast choices out there – if you’re not feeling oatmeal, go with what you feel.

    Cream of wheat was a childhood favorite for mine. I remember leaving it to cool off for a few minutes so that skin would form on top and them I’d pour a bunch of blueberry fruit syrup on top till everything turned purple! lol

    I love oat bran because it actually reminds me of cream of wheat but is so much better in nutritional value. Of course I don’t pour sugar all over it now but the scoop of peanut butter and bananas in it make up for it big time!

    I love cream of wheat. They make a whole grain variety that has more fiber and a lot more staying power than the white stuff.
    Have a great trip!!
