Oatmeal face

When will I learn?  I do not like oatmeal.  I try to convince myself that it's not so bad and then I start eating it and I get this look of disgust on my face.  My co-worker caught my oatmeal face today.

"What's wrong?  You look funny?"

"I'm eating oatmeal.  I don't like oatmeal."

"Then why do you keep eating it?"

"In hopes that I will magically like it one day."

Oatmeal is good for you.  People talk about how it fills you up and it's so healthy.  LIES!  Am I the only person still hungry after eating oatmeal?  I can't do it anymore!  I've tried so hard but it's just never going to happen.  I've tried different flavors and even making it myself.  It never gets better.

A few months from now I'll try oatmeal again.  It always happens.  I'll start thinking "well oatmeal isn't that bad." and then I'm sitting there with oatmeal face and the cycle starts all over again.


  1. I am ALWAYS hungry after eating oatmeal! Definitely not filling.

  2. Oh I have a great recipe for fruit and cream oatmeal and banana pecan oatmeal! I'll try and post it next week, it definitely made me into a believer!

  3. I try to eat oatmeal, but it makes me gag sometimes. I think it's the texture. I used to love it, though.

  4. I'm just not into oatmeal. RV likes it though, so I make it for him. :)

  5. @Liz - so I'm not the only one!

    @Marlee - I'm willing to give those a try. It sounds good in writing.

    @Tsa - I'm not sure what it is. Lack of flavor and texture maybe?

    @Suki - that's pretty much how I feel. Just not that into it.

  6. I don't actively dislike oatmeal, but it's one of those "only sometimes" foods. Your reaction to Oatmeal is pretty much mine when I try to have it for the second time in a week. Or month. Or couple of months.
