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

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“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.”

“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 have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“I just wanted to touch base as another school year draws to end. I cannot thank you enough for how smoothly this year went. Chef Felix [Herrera] and his staff made it seamless in a year with lots of wrinkles.    ”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”
