For many people, creamy oatmeal is a true comfort food. The warmth and texture of this dish may help pique a cancer patient’s appetite, and the added wheat germ and bran make it even healthier than plain oatmeal. Some people like to add a bit of milk to this dish when it is finished. To change things up, try adding a little cinnamon, some sliced banana, or raisins.
1/3 cup old-fashioned (not instant) oats
¾ cup water
1 teaspoon wheat germ
1 teaspoon bran
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about minutes. This recipe makes a single serving.
