    sorry for the stupid question, but you are stirring this on heat, right?

    No. You might the oatmeal would be awful uncooked, but the water and the yogurt soften it up quite a bit. It ain't Eggs Benedict, but it's pretty decent tasting.

    fair enough. I've had raw outmeal, just wasn't my favorite thing.

    Quaker old fashioned oats takes me 1 minute to prepare in the microwave. Add some raisins and walnuts or pecans and your're good to go.

    A cup of unflavored yogurt with flax seed and blueberries, strawberries, etc.

    Tuna Salad made with tuna, avocado, blue cheese dressing, some jalapeno, sweet relish, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and whatever else you want- clear out the old junk in your fridge. I have no clue how long this is safe to keep, but mine lasted a week no problem.

    OJ+Vanilla Whey+Milk if you feel like it works really well too.

    Migas a la Gringo. I can't make these anymore, but I used to make migas in huge batches and eat them cold in the morning. The easiest way to make them is to use pre-made spicy pico do gallo, shredded corn tortillas, some grated cheddar, and then whatever else that looked interesting in the fridge. Much like the tuna salad, it's a great way to clean out your fridge. If you want it taste even better while killing a bit of nutritional value, heat them up and then toss on some pesto.

    Gringo Ceviche lasts for a long time and makes for a delicious meal cold. Spicy pico de gallo, shrimp, scallops, and whatever other veggies you want, some garlic salt or actual garlic, and then add some diced avocado right before you go to eat it.

    A pita pocket with peanut butter, flax seed, and a sliced or diced banana.

    Steel cut oats. Cook a big pot Sunday night- reheat.

    Do you cook them in a crock pot?

    How do you cook old fashioned oats in the microwave? Every time I try to make old fashioned oats, it takes me around 10 minutes. 5 minutes to get the milk boiling + 3 minutes of actual cooking + 2 minutes to clean up the mess since the milk overflows every time.

    Really? We must be talking about 2 completely different things. I am referring to this:

    I put a scoop into a bowl, cover it with water and nuke it for a minute. It comes out cooked.
