We’ve come a long ways since the days of pre packaged instant oatmeal. Not too long ago my little babies gobbled up almost 3 packages a piece at breakfast!  There are certainly healthier breakfast options, even the organic “healthy" brand was totally filled with crap. I have a friend who buys her organic <PLAIN> oats in bulk from Winco.  

She was like, “Why aren’t you making your own?” “It’s super cheap and easy”. 

I was like, “Uh… I don’t know?"

So, that was a year ago and over the past year I’ve come up with some pretty darn tasty and nutritious hot oatmeal breakfasts (these aren’t Paleo/Whole 30) and it literally takes less time to make one pot than it did to tear open 3 packages per child.    The oats take only a few minutes on the stove and then I toss in whatever ingredients we are feeling like that day. Almost all the ingredients are found in bulk at Winco so you can get everything in one stop! 

The picture quality isn’t hot but you get the idea.

  2. So, do you cook different meals for the kids that differ what you eat? This is the obstacle I'm facing. :) The oatmeal looks delicious!!

    1. Yeah, B & I don't eat the oatmeal so I usually cook us eggs and veggies or leftover protein. I try to make a similar, if not the same meal but add a carb option for the kids. It's a challenge sometimes!

  3. We do crockpot oatmeal then everyone can mix in their own combinations of dried fruit/coconut/etc at the table then its "custom" for each taste!
