I used to hate oatmeal or any porridge-like dish. I cannot recall the last time I ate it and what was so horrible about it, but even mentioning the oatmeal used to make me fell almost sick.
And the idea of getting at 6:30 a.m. and spend those precious minutes for preparing this gooey thing? Why I would do it to myself?
But thanks to one cold, rainy day and the lack of products, I start to enjoy oatmeal. I prepared it on the soy milk with coconut and peanut butter, very cautiously, trying not to overcook it. And the taste was shocking. Oatmeal came out really good, not gooey at all.
So I decide that from time to time I can prepare the oatmeal for breakfast. It could even be my third favourite breakfast dish, along with a half of avocado with black salt and banana. Maybe it’s time to change those minimalistic breakfast? Plus it’s really comforting to eat something hot in the morning. And what is your opinion about oatmeal?
