"If you were just going to work, here's my tip: I keep a box of five-minute oats (or even better, Silver Palate oats) in my drawer. Add 1/3 cup to a bowl or mug and add about 2/3 cup hot water. Let sit five to 10 minutes while checking emails. Add a little more water or milk and microwave two to three minutes at 60 percent. Done. Add raisins, cinnamon, and nuts if desired (I keep them at work as well)."
Great idea — I love that it's just as easy as the instant stuff but with way less sugar. I think I may be buying some oats this weekend to keep in my desk next week. Thanks for the tip!
