Oatmeal is made of hulled oat grains – groats – that have either been milled (ground), steel-cut, or rolled. Ground oats are also called "white oats". Steel-cut oats are known as "coarse oatmeal" or "Irish oatmeal" or "pinhead oats". Rolled oats can be either thick or thin, and may be "old-fashioned", or "quick", or "instant". The term "oatmeal" is also used in the U.S, parts of Canada and Australia as another word for an oat-based porridge popular in such countries made from either ground, steel-cut, or rolled oats.

This was my favorite oatmeal as a kid! (And as an adult when I can find it!). Skip to 48 seconds in to see how it works! It's kind of like the Lucky Charms version of oatmeal!

Have an egg with your oatmeal

I recently read that it's better to have some protein with carbs. It slows down the carb to sugar conversion apparently. So as I was eating my oatmeal, I wondered if I could add an egg. I searched, and sure enough it's a thing! This is a good roundup of egg in oatmeal recipes.
