While this is not the quickest way to make oatmeal, it does produce tastier results. It’s also so hearty and healthy!

There’s no going back

Once I drank organic milk (many years ago), I really never considered going back to drinking non-organic milk. The difference between a glass of regular whole milk and organic whole milk is just so undeniably different.  A glass of whole organic milk is so delicious and creamy, it really tastes like a treat. Even the non-fat, 1%, or 2% organic milks are so much better tasting and creamier than regular versions. Personally, I always felt like I was drinking a mix of water and milk when I drank a lot of common brands of non-fat milk. But that’s just me. One of my favorite organic milks is produced by Organic Valley.

This is a great company that also makes organic soy milk, organic lactose free milk, organic butter, and organic cheese!
