Steel cut oatmeal, a cholesterol-fighting breakfast

I love steel cut oatmeal anyway, so this wasn’t much of a challenge…

My cholesterol levels are starting to creep up, and I wondered why.

I went on an oatmeal wave a few years back, when my cholesterol levels were at their lowest, so I think it’s time to get back on it again.

It’s really easy to make a batch on Sunday that you can use through the week!

Steel cut oatmeal

  • 1 cup organic steel cut oats
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon PB2
  1. Put oats and water in a rice cooker (I love my Zojirushi) and set it to Porridge.
  2. When it’s done cooking, scoop into 5 tupperware containers.
  3. For each serving, heat it up in the microwave for about a minute or so. Mix in PB2.
  • Yep, that’s right, no sugar of any kind. But I love adding PB2 for a little protein boost, and that yummy essence of peanut butter without all the fat!
