How I get oats into my diet daily:
Protein Shakes: I take a 1/4 cup of dry oats and put them right into the blender with all my other ingredients. Mixes well!

Granola substitute for my yogurt: I eat yogurt often (plain, greek!), and I usually add, some oats, fresh fruit, and a little honey on top

Overnight Oats: You can do a quick google search and find a ton of recipes for overnight oats. Simple. Easy to make. Perfect for grab and go breakfast.

Make oatmeal (duh!): Boil water. Add oats. Done! Maybe add some cinnamon or fruit or peanut butter, or all three. And you have a solid breakfast.
