So this morning I had a bowl of plain oatmeal (from Au Bon Pan). I added some raisins and a little brown sugar for flavoring, but that didn’t really add much flavor. I think I’m going to buy some cinnamon and add that for flavoring instead. In any event, I ate the oatmeal, which should have no sodium in it whatsoever. First step in reducing my sodium intake. I imagine that stuff grows on you, but I had a bit of a hard time with it.
