On Monday, our local newspaper published an Op-Ed column touting the virtues of McDonald’s. The newspaper does not have publishing rights to publish the column online, so I did a Yahoo search, hoping to find it. Instead I found this.

Mark Bittman of the New York Times takes McDonald’s to task for ruining oatmeal, giving it more calories than a hamburger.

I eat oatmeal almost every day. It’s inexpensive and easy to make. Put some water on the stove top, pour in some rolled oats and let it come to a boil, stir and, voila!, oatmeal. Add some fresh fruit (I like bananas and blueberries), maybe some chia seeds or flax seed meal, and you have breakfast. Doesn’t get easier than that.

Take a look at Jeff Novick’s oatmeal video
