  1. Oh yes, there's soooo many options! Of course, you can always stir flavors and spices into the oatmeal while it's cooking, rather than top at the end. It's up to you – that's the beauty of it! So are you more of a sweet or savory person? What are your favorite flavors? Happy Sunday! xo – Lisa

  2. Your content was actually informative! I've been trying to search for an educational YouTube vid similar to yours that explains the topics in this video. 👏Your breakdown actually is like the channel of this smart health enthusiast Dr. Ethan. Dr Ethan's tips are really insightful and I actually learned a lot for wellness. He is an educational med student in the UK and he teaches health and mental health!

    Go check out his channel out and give the medical student a subscribe here! 👉 #LearnFromDrEthan

  3. I am so glad to see this video. I thought my wife had lost her mind (I should never doubt this amazing woman). A couple of years ago my wife explained that since rice is a grain and oats is a grain then we should be able to do the same things with the two. Now savory is my favorite way to have oats. One is oats with butter and soy sauce and the other is oats with kimchi.

  4. I'm a firm believer in flavorings every level of your food. The oatmeal itself should be flavored with vanilla and salt. Salt is what brings ALL the flavors together to dance with one another.
    I also dont like a lot of sugar in my oatmeal, so I use bananas to add sweetness with vanilla. I never leave out the vanilla.
