Oatmeal Isn’t Just for Eating

17 Jan

Oatmeal is a great way to get your day started, but there are so many other ways to use oatmeal.

Of course there’s morning oatmeal. Put out several bowls of different toppings and let your child mix it up for the day. (raisins, brown sugar, dried apples, butter, syrup, canned pumpkin, cinnamon, nuts, berries, Nutella etc.)

Mix oatmeal and some whipping cream in a small bowl and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Spread on your face and allow to dry. Rinse and you will have a softer, smoother complexion.

Oatmeal baths are soothing for some skin issues. If your doctor recommends an oatmeal bath, blend up some oats until they are very fine. Pour 1/3 of a cup of oats into a running bath and soak. Be careful, the oats make the bathtub really slippery.

Don’t forget oatmeal cookies!

Make some granola.

Put a bowl of dried oats in your refrigerator to absorb odors.

Make some clay for your kids.

Use as a substitute for breadcrumbs or a filler for meatballs, hamburgers and meatloaf.

If that’s not enough, don’t forget to use the empty oatmeal container for art projects and storage.
