If there’s one meal that I could eat over and over again, it would be breakfast. I find myself in a breakfast rut more times than not and frequently switch between avocado toast with a fried egg and oatmeal.

There are so many ways to make oatmeal delicious. Whether you’re feeling something warm and cozy, light and chilled, or convenient, there’s an oatmeal option for that.
