This is my go to breakfast. I am going to freeze the extra portions so I can pop them in the microwave when I am in a hurry.

Hello my husband and I have decided to make a lifestyle change and do without oil and dairy. Would it be good to use almond milk instead of the soy and rice milk in our oatmeal?
