I have been enjoying my new gym schedule but there has been one thing lacking, food! I am at the gym so long and I find I am going far too long without food. I decided to try taking oatmeal in a thermos to fill in the gap. At first I would pop into Starbucks and request hot water but found I was still waiting too long to eat. I then decided I would take the oats and put them in the thermos with boiling water before I left in the morning. Guess what? It worked! I have even done it with steel cut oats and they work even better!
Here's how I do it:
Place 1/3 to 1/2 cup oats(regular or steel cut) in a 16-oz. Thermos. The amount of oats you use depends on how thick you like your oatmeal. I like mine pretty thick!
Pour boiling water over oats. Add a pinch of salt and some agave(if desired).
Place lid on tightly and shake well. Let sit for 30 minutes for regular oats and 60 minutes for steel cut oats. Remove lid and enjoy! You can leave it sitting for up to 3 hours and it is still hot. Love it!
