    I love oatmeal. I eat it every single morning. I like cooking it in milk and just add butter and brown sugar. Blueberries and pecans are good too.

    If you like plain ole oatmeal enjoy it. I prefer sugar free instant myself. My solution to lowering A1C (from 6.1 in May to 5.8 in November) has been to eat low, no or no sugar added foods as much as possible (just a matter of more label reading) and better, more consistent exercise which this year has been made possible by hip replacement surgeries. Good luck to you!

    Homemade oatmeal can be very healthy. Instant oatmeal has a lot of added sugar so may not be quite as good for you.

    Instant oatmeal doesn't necessarily have any added sugar. Instant flavored oatmeal has extra sugar. For example, the ingredients in instant unflavored oatmeal from quaker are oats, calcium carbonite (firming agent), salt, and reduced iron

    I’m on a mission to lose weight and lower my A1C. Working on all the numbers, really. With a cold season already here, oatmeal sticks to the ribs, and warms me, fills me. I make it with almond milk and a dash of vanilla and cinnamon. Now , I see this You Tube guy saying I’m better off eating poison!! My A1C is a 6.1, and I don’t want it higher. What’s the thoughts on plain old oatmeal??

    Plain ole oatmeal is a Friendly. Having baked batches of lactation chocolate chip cookies in the past 2 months with my sister for a friend whose nursing her newborn, a foe it most certainly isn't IMO.

    I prefer mine savoury. My sister prepares mine with cardamom, cinnamon, cream cheese and berries.
