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

“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 let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“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.”

“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!”

“Thank you for all the accommodations for food intolerances and allergies.  I continue to hear positive comments about the quality of the food and the options. Please pass along our thanks and gratitude to your whole team!!!!”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“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.”

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“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.”
