Here is a yummy alternative to oatmeal in the morning. Very healthy whole grains, too. "Super foods" some people call them. Takes a little while to make it, but very yummy. Add your own spices, sweeteners and dried fruit, to your taste. This recipe can be easily halved if you use a small saucepan. Supposedly you can cook in a small crockpot overnight, but I've personally only ever tried this on the stovetop.
