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

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

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“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.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“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.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“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. ”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”
