peanut butter, butter, chocolate/cocoa, brown sugar, dried tart cherries, prunes, raisins, dried cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. i'm not too much on adding nuts when the oatmeal is cooking but afterwards is ok. i like walnuts the best for oatmeal. peanuts are good too but i don't often have them on hand (they get eaten ).
at least once a week i like the dried tart cherries and peanut butter combination with no added sugar. it's a good combination of flavors for me.
i don't usually drink when eating meals but then wash it down with some water after. not too much. i want the stomach acids to work and dilluting them just means the stomach has to make more. i drink a lot more water in between meals. once in a while a glass of milk with something but that is a snack. rarely anything else. i'm not into drinking sodas. hot chocolate and teas are ok. i'm trying to do less calories so hot chocolate is now a once in a while thing instead of daily. teas i normally drink plain or with a little sugar. coffee/fake coffee is once a month or so.
when I eat oatmeal I like to add brown sugar, butter and a little cinnamon but when I eat grits I only add butter and maple syrup I know I know that's weird but that's how I like my grits. When I eat cornmeal (yup, cornmeal!) I make it like I normally would but I put it in a small metal can ( like a spaghetti sauce can or a tall soup can) like it harden in the fridge so it cools then very easily get it out of the can in one piece, slice it in 1/2" slices and fry them in a hot buttered frying pan then put maple syrup on them and enjoy
