Raw Oatmeal?

racer x | Feb 23, 2011 08:54 AM

New York Times' Mark Bittman, in an article criticizing McDonald's fruit and maple oatmeal for being too expensive and a poor nutritional offering, counters the argument that getting McDonald's oatmeal is more convenient than making your own at home:

"If you don’t want to bother with the stove at all, you could put some rolled oats (instant not necessary) in a glass or bowl, along with a teeny pinch of salt, sugar or maple syrup or honey, maybe some dried fruit. Add milk and let stand for a minute (or 10). Eat. Eat while you’re walking around getting dressed. And then talk to me about convenience."

I haven't tried this suggestion, but it sounds pretty ghastly.
