Salem Oatmeal

I know I said I wasn't going to do any cooking this trip, but this healthy breakfast was too easy not to share! Plug in your microwave, and get ready to make yourself a hearty bowl of oatmeal. Not much measuring going on here; just throw it all in the bowl and press "go."

- 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup water
- cinnamon, to taste
- chopped walnuts, to taste
- dried cranberries, to taste
- sweetener (maple syrup, brown sugar, etc.), optional

How To Cook It
1) Add all ingredients to a microwavable bowl.
2) Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, depending on the power of your appliance.
3) Remove from the microwave and stir everything together.
4) Top with fresh fruit of your choice.


  1. Healthy cooking is one way to fight health-related problems such as obesity, which is the leading health issue of many people today. More and more people are becoming obese and overweight because of unhealthy practices, loss of exercise and bad eating habits. Moreover, many people are getting very busy with their careers so they opt to eat fattening meals found in fast food over cooking their own meals at home.

  2. I'm totally an oatmeal eater and I do similar breakfasts than this one, but I don't heat it up. Absolutely delicious. :-)
