100% Natural Irish Oats

This product has been around since the late 1800’s.  When I eat this I feel like I’m back in time eating porridge from Little House on the Prairie.  It’s a 100% whole grain cereal and it makes the perfect breakfast.  I usually serve with a teaspoon of maple syrup and blueberries.  When I know I have a big day ahead and may not stop for lunch this is the breakfast that works for me.  I don’t feel full but it keeps you going throughout the day.  Not that I am recommending skipping lunch!  It’s imported from Ireland… so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

I like to make it from scratch but you can buy an instant variety that also works if you are short on time.  This Irish Blessing is wonderful and appears on all their packaging, “May the road rise to meet you.   May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.”
