Oatmeal with S&P? Never tried that. Oatmeal is similar to regular porridge oats isn't it?

Love the sound of your juice! Beets are the perfect veg

I treat oatmeal/steel cut oats/Red River Valley cereal like grits--S&P and sometimes a dab of butter. The juice was amazing. I wish I had more beets. The orange-apple-carrot seem to cancel out the "earthy" taste of the beets. The juice was relatively sweet. I had intended to keep the 2nd glass for tomorrow but didn't have enough will power not to drink it. I love beet juice...anything with beet juice. The same thing happens when I juice tomatoes--I plan on putting juice in the freezer, but usually end up drinking about 2 l and then have to force myself to put the rest in the freezer. The girls, btw, love the pulp. I have frozen the pulp to put in soups, but since I have laying hens, I usually give the pulp to them. And, they got the leftover oatmeal (I nuke it). The only thing I don't like about juicing is cleaning the juicer parts. I don't have a Vitamix, sigh. Without a dw, I don't know how people stand using a centrifugal force juicer. I have had several brands, and find cleaning them a pain without a dw. Now that I have a dw, life is much easier re: using the juicer, but it is still a messy process.

I will try the savoury oats idea

I love beet juice too and boiled, steamed or baked beets!!!!
I gave my juicer to my brother when his wife was pregnant but Woolworths has the most devine beetroot juice
It's 100 % pure with no sugar or salt.
Tomato juice is one of my favourites too but I want celery salt, tabasco and a dash of lemon with mine.

I even like carrot juice when mixed with orange and I can't stand carrot!

I enjoy Red River cereal, but can't get it unless I cross the big ditch into Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. I do enjoy steel cut oats though. You can keep the grits.

There are jsut some great things available in our Northern twin town that we can't get on the U.S. side of the river, like Balderson, 5-year Heritage Cheddar, or even Presidents Choice 7 year aged Cheddar.

Ah well, it gives me an excuse to vising my Canadian friends.

Today is a busy day running errands so I grabbed 2 hardboiled (actually, oven baked in the shell--it works--you lay them horizontally across a mini-muffin tin and bake for 30 minutes at 325--I did 36 eggs and put them in a tub with water and snow [very cold water] for 20 minutes) eggs that I made for pickled eggs, this afternoon's project, a blood orange and a glass of milk (which I go to NY to get because I don't like Canadian milk or cottage cheese). I'm surprised RRV cereal isn't available in MI. You can buy it in Northern MN.
