I don't normally eat breakfast, but when I do it's something small and simple - peanut butter on toast, Greek Gods Honey Yogurt, or Carnation Breakfast Essentials. Or a piece of fruit.

I usually have a large bowl of oatmeal topped with blueberries and soymilk. I also have a banana, and coffee with soymilk.

I find organic packets for $1.99 per box of 8 so the difference between that and Quaker regular oats is negligible.
There is no validated proof that organic foods are any better or worse than your standard foods. Some people just like to buy into fads. Like "gluten free" or "fat free" or "low-carbs" -- all recent fads.

You'd save even more if you just bought store brands. I get my oatmeal from Aldi for less than $2 for a huge container that lasts me 3 weeks.

I don't need validated proof. Non organic food has or may have pesticides sprayed on it. I don't want to ingest pesticides, no matter the amount or whether or not they have been tested. Organic food cannot have pesticides sprayed on it.

Its really that simple.

Organic foods actually still have pesticide residues. It's about 1/4 what you'll find in conventional foods though. They also use naturally-derived pesticides.

Virtually everything I buy is organic and there are plenty of reasons to do so - better flavor, better nutritional profile, less exposure to pesticides, more sustainable farming practices... However, it's a myth that organic farming doesn't use pesticides.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal w/ vanilla soymilk, plain yogurts mixed in, and sometimes fruit or berries.

I've tried oatmeal w/ milk, cottage cheese, and egg. The protein/ complex carb mix made me feel good, and would stop the mid morning 'I feel starved' snacking. Too salty tho.
