I was hoping to spice up my oatmeal and eggs in the morning.

Was wondering what condiments i can use. I read the articles on the site already..but none i really liked.

I was wondering ...Does Grounded Cinnamon have any nutritional facts ? as in health benefits and calories....

Black Pepper?

What other things can i add to eggwhite omelets that are SPICES not veggies or meats that can add flavor but not calories...or anything?

I know Curry has calories...and i love curry....and since it is only that little bit of calorie i guess it doesn't matter.

What else..i'm very interested in condiments right now....
What can i add to my Oatmeal ...and no..i won't add peanut butter....its fats and Carbs right there...and i try to avoid that.

For the eggs, how about salsa, tabasco sauce or fat free cheese?

For oatmeal, I've been using a spoonful of sugar free pudding mix and its made a world of difference. (somebody on the board suggested it for cottage cheese awhile back)

Thanks for all your ideas..but i think i'll stick to Cinnamon..as it seems to have good dietary fiber and calcium and Iron in 1 TBSP!!

I 'll also get some curry powder to add to my chicken ...i used to eat alot of Japanese Curry Rice...so curry powder would have to do.

Now..how about a Pancake recipe using the things i eat in the morning. I usually eat 10 eggwhites, 1/2 cup oatmeal, and now i'll put in 1TPSP of Cinnamon grounded.

How do you think i should make the pancake...?
I never made pancakes before so..how should i go about using the above ingredients to make it? Advise would be appreciated...
