Yummy Oatmeal
by Dr. Michael Kane

I cook my oatmeal in a mixture of juice and water ( ½ juice, ½ water)  instead of all water and add lots of fruit and berries to make it tasty without the need for extra sweeteners.
Pour juice (apple, white grape, pear, unsweetened cranberry) water mixture in a pot (use the same amount as water is called for on the box.)
While the juice/water is heating up add one chopped apple or pear and a handful of berries, I like cranberries but blueberries are great as well.  Bring the mix to a light boil and add in the oatmeal.  Mix in spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest to your taste.  Turn the heat down to a low simmer and let cook for appropriate time.  Rolled oats around 5 – 10 minutes.
Place in serving bowl
For extra protein or add whey protein.
Let stand for a few minutes and then dig in.
