No time for breakfast!

If you are one of those people who just can't seem to find time for breakfast before heading off to work; here's an idea for making sure that you never have to miss breakfast again.  The following is a list of ingredients that you can keep in your desk at work.

You will need:
Quaker Instant Oatmeal - the box contains three flavors
    (maple brown sugar, cinnamon and spice, apples and cinnamon). 
Raisins and/or dried cranberries
Walnuts, almonds, or pecans
Fresh apples

Microwavable Bowl
Paring knife

Empty one package of oatmeal into a bowl and generously cover the dry ingredients with water.  Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes.  While the oatmeal is cooking wash the apple and cut into bite size chunks.  Once the oatmeal is cooked, add the apples, a generous helping of dried fruit and nuts.  If you like a creamier oatmeal you can also add milk of your choosing - whole milk, soy or almond.  My personal favorite is almond milk.  I find the taste to be much fresher, and it still has the creaminess of whole milk. 
Stir the warm oatmeal blending it thoroughly with the other ingredients.  Enjoy! 

You will have a healthy breakfast that you can eat at your desk.  By giving your body a nutritious breakfast you might find that you are less likely to snack on junk food throughout the day.  If, however, you still feel like snacking you can munch on the apples, nuts, and raisins in your desk.
