Oatmeal

Oatmeal? How boring.
Not really.
If you eat oatmeal made from rolled oats or instant oatmeal, I have a surprise for you.
Try steel-cut oats.
You can purchase them from McCann's at just about any health food store.
According to their website: "One cup of steel-cut oatmeal contains more fiber than a bran muffin and twice as much fibre as Cream of Wheat. The quality of Irish Oats and the distinctive crunchy texture make McCann's Steel-Cuts a gourmet delight."
And they're part of a heart healthy diet.

I use a small crockpot to prepare them.
Just add water and turn on low.
Some RVers I know start the oats before they go to bed.
In the morning, they awaken to hot coffee and breakfast.
A few minutes before the oats are cooked, add fresh or dried fruit and honey, brown sugar or maple syrup.
Try it!

We LOVE steel-cut oats but McCann's is $3-4 per pound. Look instead in the bulk foods department of your favorite natural foods store (Whole Foods, for instance) and you'll find it at $0.85-0.90/lb.
