Gimme Oatmeal Ideas!!!.... Please:0)

Today is my last day before my next weigh in.  Psychologically, I feel compelled to eat all of my remaining weekly bonus points (THEY ARE MINE DAMMIT) but I am sure I will somehow find the strength to contain myself.

Hey you guys, please gimme your favorite oatmeal combination (and recipe if necessary).  I am starting to like it more. I mean the truth is, oatmeal is tasty if I get to put everything that I want into it.  I just struggle with spending too many points on oatmeal - so you got any hints/suggestions? I see people using things like yogurt, peanutbutter, etc and I woud love to give it a try.

My mom grated cabbage and carrots yesterday and just to get rid of the leftovers in the fridge, I made cole slaw.  The dressing was made with a tbsp of lite mayo, tsp of olive oil, splash of vinegar, little bit of mustard, salt, pepper, basil, and parsley...

5 pts

Chicken drumstick with skin
zucchini "fries" (breaded and baked)
6 pts

Honestly, I made these zucchini fries because I REALLY wanted sweet potato fries, but it was late and they take too long to make.   So I made these instead.  Didn't like 'em.  The zucchini part was fine - i like zucchini.  But the breaded part wasn't tasty.  No thank you. 

Dessert (again!)

I eat oatmeal almost every day! Some of my favourite topping combos are:

- almond butter and sliced banana
- raspberries and dried apricots (chopped small)
- blueberry (or strawberry or mango) and coconut
- peanut butter and jam
- pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and cottage cheese (sounds weird, but it's good! Actually, I almost always add cottage cheese to my oatmeal, you just need to add a little extra sweetener to compensate)
- crumbled chocolate vitatop, with or without added peanut butter
- sometimes add chocolate or butterscotch chips for extra deliciousness!

For the fruit, except for the banana, I mostly use frozen, at least during the winter. I just keep a few bags in the freezer and microwave whatever portion I want to use.

Good luck at your weigh-in!

After I microwave oatmeal with about 3/4 cup of water, I add vanilla yogurt, 1/2 a banana, and 1/4 granola (Special K brand)...yummy!
