Short answer: oats are great.
Long answer, in two parts: First, oatmeal has been my work-week lunch for awhile. At my previous job my co-workers took notice of my lunch choice, also known as ‘oat time’ or ‘time for oats’. Now we’re all in different places so this was, in some ways, a comical way of keeping in touch with all of them.
Second, because oats are great. They’re easy, super healthy, satisfying, versatile, and affordable.
