My Breakfast 

Home made "instant" oats

Steel Cut oats or Groats are the only type of oats that actually reduce cholesterol and lower triglycerides according to a study published last year. That is due to the fact that the bran is still intact.
The process of partially cooking and pressing the oat removes much or all of the bran.
The nutty flavour of the whole oat adds much flavour and texture to your morning breakfast

Here is my favourite recipe to make the process "instant"

In a bowl combine:
1/2 C steel cut oats (Bob's Red Mill can be ordered online)
Some dried fruit - I like dried cranberries, chopped dried apricots but used any type you like
a sprinkle of sliced almonds and walnuts
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Boil 3/4 C water and pour over mixture
cover and leave on counter overnight.
In the morning microwave on high until hot.
Sweeten with honey or your favourite sweetener.
Add milk if you want, but I find I don't need it
