My Favorite Oatmeal

One of the reasons I exercise so much is because I like to eat!  I do have a sweet tooth that will not die, there is no denying that.  However, I’d never describe myself as a “Foodie” because I think that sounds snobby.  I do appreciate homemade food and I  admit that I am very anti-chain restaurant.  Give me a “Mom & Pop” owned place over a Chilis, 99, Olive Garden or other such place any day.

Here is one of my favorite breakfasts.  It tastes really good in these cold winter temps too.

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal: modified from an recipe.


  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. In a saucepan, combine water and oats. Simmer 5 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, banana and chocolate chips.  Serves about 2.
