Can I share something with you? Not too long ago I ate oatmeal all the time. I’m not talking about the beautiful bowls of oatmeal and almond milk overnight oats on my website. Oh no I’m talking about plain rolled old fashioned oats and water. That was it.
No berries, no bananas, no granola, no flavor. I thought that I didn’t need to waste the extra calories. Yet to no surprise I binge ate even after eating my “safe” food. I can even remember putting Franks Red Hot Sauce on top of oatmeal because I thought it was low in calories and might be more flavorful. Oh my goodness it was so freaking terrible.
