If you would have told me three years ago that one day I would LOVE oatmeal, I would probably say that you don't know me well at all. In fact, up until after my son was born, I hadn't eaten oatmeal since I was a little girl. Even then, anytime my mom would fix it for us for breakfast, I would tear up my buttered toast and each bite I took had to be accompanied by a piece of toast.
It's amazing though what you will do for your children. I was struggling with lactation and kept reading over and over to eat oatmeal to help with my milk supply. So reluctantly, I made my first bowl. Y'all, I crammed everything in that bowl I could to get down the oatmeal.
Some ingredients I added to my oatmeal to make it tastier were:
and of course, two slices of toast on the side.
Thankfully, over time I was able to go from nearly gagging, to eating oatmeal not just for lactation, but because I actually enjoy it. In fact, I only add cinnamon and raisins now. So, if you know the benefits of eating oatmeal, but can't stand the taste or texture, I promise that if I can eat it, anyone can!
