It’s everyone’s (least) favorite time of year. Colds are being passed around like belated holiday presents, and hot beverages serve more to soothe throats than to warm bellies. The winter sniffles are in full swing, and with them, the need to prepare for potential sick days. Luckily, there’s one cold-weather meal that works great regardless of whether you’re fighting a fever or simply trying to get your fill: a hearty bowl of chicken noodle soup.
Oatmeal doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being an exciting meal. When poorly prepared, it can be bland, boring, or filled with bad textures. But on cold fall mornings, a well made cup of oatmeal can be exactly the kind of breakfast you need to get you going. And with more oatmeal companies offering convenient instant cup varieties, it’s even easier to stash a few at the office for those mornings when eating at home is not an option.
