A yummy oatmeal alternative…

In my quest for a healthy oatmeal alternative–you can only eat oatmeal for so long– I purchased Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Rolled Oat Cereal the other day. I’ve tried several other of Bob’s multi-grain hot cereals and this latest version is much better than the 10 grain chicken-feed-looking stuff I had been eating!

The cereal cooks up kind of creamy, with only water added, and a serving is just 120 calories. I added a Bosc pear, a teaspoon of brown sugar, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and popped it in the microwave. I must say, it was delicious! Definitely an excellent choice when you are tired of your usual, plain old oatmeal!

The cereal.
A pear instead of my usual apple was awesome!
