Doctor Oz and Harley Pasternak, author of The 5-Factor Diet, gave a few creative oatmeal recipes for making 3 recipes with one ingredient: oatmeal! Oatmeal is great for lowering bad cholesterol (and steel cut oatmeal is quite tasty – I have it for breakfast at least a few days a week). Another random piece of trivia about oatmeal: In Italy they feed oatmeal to pigs. Back to Harley Pasternak though, lots of celebrities like Lady GaGa swear by his recipes for weight loss and diets. I am very excited about trying all of them! If (and when!) you make these oatmeal recipes, make sure to leave a comment and share your cooking tips and any advice for improving the recipes if you find any.
Instead of a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, try this Apple Cinnamon Frittata. And for lunch, how about some salmon cakes that use oats instead of bread crumbs like Harley’s Dill Salmon Cake Recipe. For dinner, spice up your life with Pasternak’s Spicy Oat-Crusted Chicken Recipe.
