Strawberry Oatmeal

My mom is a doctor, so I’ve grown up being lectured as to the importance of a healthy, hardy breakfast.  And you know what? She’s right. If my breakfast is less than ideal I fall asleep during physics, which is bad because I am currently walking the line between a B+ and an A-, and I still can’t wrap my mind around rotational motion. So I need to stay awake, meaning I need to start my day right, which brings me to oatmeal.

It’s delicious, cheap, simple and filling, not to mention healthy (speaking of health, I went for a run! You should all be proud of me). Especially when mixed with seasonal fruit, oatmeal is a fantastic way to start your day right.
You will need…

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/3 cup liquid of choice (water, milk or a combination of the two)
  • 1/4 cup chopped strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

Place a pot over medium heat and add the liquid and oats. This will need to cook for a few minutes; keep an eye on it and stir once in a while. When the oats start to bubble and come together, reduce heat and add sugar. Cook a while longer, until oats have reached a nice thick consistency. Add the berries and stir well. Enjoy!
