I use to not be able to eat oatmeal. I think it was because we had it so much when I was a kid, I ended up not liking it and stopped eating it for 12ish years. My daughter loves it though, so I started to get it for her. I can't stand the instant packs though, so I just get regular instant oats and add my own fresh fruit and nuts, which honestly makes it so much better. Plus, I realized that I can control the consistency of it, I like it thicker instead of runny. So now I eat oatmeal on a regular basis, call me crazy, but it kinda feels like a warm hug from inside out...soup makes me feel the same way, all warm and fuzzy from within.
