Healthy Coffee Pot Foods

This week I've been staying in an awesome hotel in California. Although I have access to fresh fruits, vegetables and an array of healthy meals, I wondered what one can make in just a coffee pot. Can healthy meals and snacks come out of a hotel room coffee pot? I did some research and found some awesome coffee pot meals that are quite healthy! So, next time your in a hotel room and looking to make something healthy, all you need are a few healthy ingredients to make a nutritious meal! Enjoy this guide below for healthy coffee pot meals! Instant brown rice: add the desired amount of rice into the coffee pot. Add the correct amount of water in the carafe. Start the coffee pot and keep on for an extra 10-15 minutes, until rice has absorbed all the water and is cooked. Bonus: add frozen veggies with the rice! Instant oatmeal: place oatmeal in the coffee pot. Add the appropriate amount of water in the carafe. Start the coffee pot and keep on until all water is absorbed and oatmeal is cooked. Hard boiled egg: place egg in the coffee pot. Add enough water in the pot to cover the egg. Turn the coffee pot on and allow the water to boil. Turn coffee pot off. Leave egg in the hot water for another 10 minutes. Once the water has cooled, take the egg out and peel and enjoy! Steamed vegetables: place veggies in the filter basket of your coffee pot. Add enough water in the coffee pot and turn the coffee pot on. Steam will build in the filter basket. Cook until you achieve desired tenderness. Soup: place soup in the carafe to warm up. If using instant soup, add appropriate water to carafe. Turn coffee pot on to warm or cook. These are just a few suggestions I came up with. Anyone try to cook anything else in a coffee pot?
