I'm really, really trying to eat better. Less meat and bread, more fruits and veggies. I've always eaten breakfast, just not the healthiest kind and so (for the hundredth time) I am attempting to eat oatmeal in the morning.
This time I bought a hazelnut blend, added some water, cooked it in the microwave for a minute and a half and then added chopped almonds. First, I don't like cereal. Second, I don't like mushy food. Third, oatmeal has absolutely no color. Day one went pretty good but by the second day I couldn't even gag half of it down. Why does it have to taste like paper towels?
I thought about using my uneaten oatmeal to spackle some nail holes but it was too lumpy so I dumped it in the trash. The dog watched the whole thing and even he wasn't interested. Another fail but we happened to have some tasty oatmeal cookies and wasn't that a stroke of luck to get my daily dose of a filling breakfast after all?
