Oatmeal: Z is for Zucchini

Z is for Zucchini
I sometimes wonder how some grated zucchini, raisins, cinnamon, and a touch of ground clove will taste mixed together in my morning oatmeal.

Oatmeal: Y is for Yogurt

Y is for Yogurt
Honestly, I only use yogurt when there isn't any milk. It's good in a granola parfait with fruit--not so good mixed into hot oatmeal where it leaves a bad aftertaste.

Y is for Yeast
Nutritional yeast is supposed to taste cheesy. I keep meaning to purchase some to see if my husband will be tricked by it on popcorn--thinking I made cheese popcorn. So, I have never tried it in oatmeal.

X is for Xocolatl
I wrote about chocolate in oatmeal before but I can never stress enough how necessary chocolate is to my well-being. I will be ever grateful to live in a world with Xocolatl.

Oatmeal: W is for Walnuts

Nuts and oatmeal work well mixed together. Walnuts are one of those powerfoods we should all be eating.

Oatmeal: V is for Vanilla

Kashi has vanilla oatmeal. I save myself the money by making my own by adding a few drops of vanilla extract into my oatmeal before heating it. Yum.
