Oatmeal Snob

What do you eat for breakfast?

We get our brains started with high fiber complex carbohydrates and omega-3 fatty acids with a power punch of sweet glossy superfood berries.







MP makes himself a giant bowl of unsweetened Coaches Oats with a scoop of ground golden flax seeds (in the microwave).  After loading the brimming bowl with strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries, he allows it to set for a while before he eats it.  Meanwhile he brews a skinny cappuccino (foam only).  He sips it from a red French red lion’s head bowl originally designed for French Onion Soup, I believe, as he digests the morning newspaper.







For me the same oats are cooked stovetop  in cold water simmering to a just so state of creamy comfort.










Stir the golden flax seeds into the oats before berries crown the vintage Villeroy &  Boch Adeline porridge bowl.

Why?  Because, we are old, food is medicine and I am a certified dish-junkie.








What is on your morning table?

    I would eat anything out of that lovely vintage bowl! Even my Post Raisin Bran with 1/2 banana would be delectable in V & B!

    Lovely traditions! My breakfast of choice is a heaping bowl of fresh berries or cherries topped with non fat Greek yogurt and a splash of maple syrup. I serve it in my favorite old stoneware bowl alongside a tall mug of French pressed black coffee. Yum!
