Thank you so much for the kind compliments about my new haircut! You are all too sweet!
I am thanking you by giving you a healthy, inexpensive recipe that any traveler is sure to enjoy.
When I make myself oatmeal at home, I use organic rolled oats from the bulk aisle of my grocery store. Each pound of oats costs $1.99, which works out to be about 17 cents per 1/4 cup serving.
Compare that 17 cents of organic, high-quality oatmeal to the $3.00 instant quaker oatmeal pack that works out to be 38 cents per serving.
- 1 pound rolled oats, gluten-free if needed
- Optional: dried fruit, nuts, chia, flax, or other grains
- Mixing grains by adding rice flour, millet, quinoa, or buckwheat
- Homestyle Oats: raisins, cinnamon, and walnuts
- Apple Crisp: dried apple bits, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond pieces
- Double Chocolate: cocoa powder and cacao nibs
- Strawberries and Cream: vanilla bean and dried strawberries
- Trail-mix: Add as many nuts and dried fruit pieces I can!
- Chocolate-Peanut Butter: Peanuts and cocoa powder
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
When you are on the road, do you usually bring your own food or eat out at restaurants? What do you bring? What restaurants do you go to?
I do a mix of both. I try to bring as much food as I can, but I supplement with food at restaurants. I try to eat as many veggies as I can while on the road, and I stay away from refined flours, breads, fried foods, and sugar, of course!
