Sure you can: try to eat steel cut oats , you can find fast cooking steel cut oats in grocery stores . Definitely better than instant oats , compare a log burning slowly over a long time versus splinters that burn fast and are done.

Oatmeal is good food: Working nights messes with your daytime diet so much that I wouldn't get hung up on the usual names of meals. Oatmeal is good food anytime, enjoy it. I put in raisins, currents and maybe even dried cranberries. Some folks like a little granola too. It is also a great opportunity for a fresh or even frozen fruit mix in.
