Really good! I was craving oatmeal, but can't have it due to the blood sugar spikes it causes. I will say that I will LISTEN to the reviews of those who came before me next time, as I tried to make this with soy milk and ended up having to just cook it on the stove top, as it kept overflowing even when I watched it. I'll try again with just water, using a bigger bowl, and see if that turns out for me. Used plain soy milk, added cinnamon, and a touch of agave to sweeten. Word of advice, if you think your bowl is right, go up a size... ;-) Your microwave will thank you. Thanks for sharing!
This is how I make my buckwheat cereal - I get the toasted groats and prefer their strong flavor without sweetener or anything else; I cook it in water and just add a little coconut oil while it's cooking and some salt, and I add some almond milk once it's in the bowl. This stuff rocks, but it probably helps to be Russian.

I also struggle with anorexia, and so most of the recipes I create or try are low-calorie and fat-free. I do love to bake, though, and I'm able to do that for others right now, which is nice. I also keep kosher; that, combined with the fact that I don't really eat meat or cheese, means that most of my recipes (or recipes that I try) are non-dairy and vegetarian, or can be easily adapted to suit that. Kitchen gadgets are a horrible weakness of mine ... it is just so much fun to try out crazy new products that sometimes I can't help myself! Limited kitchen storage space has managed to sort of curtail that little habit.
