Oatmeal Toppings with Extra Nutrition

As we learned last week, oatmeal has many nutritional benefits. What if you could take those health benefits up a notch? How you make and create your oatmeal dishes can add extra nutrients and flavor.

  • Dried or Fresh Fruit will add some extra sweetness and texture as well as vitamins and minerals.
  • Nuts and Seeds add a crunch to your creamy oatmeal and some healthy fat to make your oatmeal more satisfying. Add slivered almonds, crushed peanuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, or chia seeds for some extra texture and nutrition.
  • Maple Syrup, Honey, or Jam are more concentrated sources of sweetness for your oatmeal. These additions will make your oatmeal more flavorful!
  • Fresh Spices or Herbs are a way to boost the taste of your oatmeal without the extra sweetness. For a warmer and sweeter flavor try adding cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice. For a more savory taste, try garlic, pepper, or curry. Herbs and spices are high in antioxidants.
  • Nut Butters are a great way to add some protein and fat to your oatmeal. Stir them in for a thicker consistency or spread on top.
  • Milk or Yogurt add calcium, vitamin D, and protein to your oatmeal. Cooking your oats with dairy will also make your oats creamier.
  • Vegetables add even more fiber to your oatmeal.
  • Eggs will boost the protein content and add nutrients like B vitamins and choline.

What our clients are saying

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”
