Oatmeal is the breakfast of choice!

This is a great way to prepare it
by Robin White & Tom Furman

Oatmeal Part One

Oatmeal Part Two

Tom and I like to cook our Old Fashioned Oatmeal in the microwave for 3 minutes on high, fill to top of oats with water, covered with a paper plate. I add my chopped strawberries and blueberries afterward. He likes his cooked on the bottom, so he puts his in with the oats covering it.

After the oats are steaming from the microwave, we add in protein powder, chopped almonds, wheat germ (all optional) and mix them altogether for a breakfast that will hold you for four to five hours and is very nutritious and healing to the body.

Oatmeal is high in Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an essential fatty acid (EFA) in the omega-6 family that is found primarily in plant-based oils. Some clinicians and preliminary clinical research suggest that gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and may be useful in the treatment of: Diabetes, Eye disease, Osteoporosis, Menopausal symptoms, Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), Eczema, Allergies, Rheumatoid arthritis, Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Alcoholism, Cancer, High blood pressure and heart disease and Ulcers. GLA is also found in the plant seed oils of evening primrose, black currant, borage, and fungal oils. Spirulina (often called blue-green algae).

Hope you'll try this recipe. Let us know your thoughts!
