BuffyBear's Journal, 25 February 2012

I have another foe beside nuts. It is instant oatmeal. I had supposedly given this up a few weeks ago but had one last box at work for "emergency" breakfasts. Apparently I had a lot of emergencies. Box is now gone and I will not be buying another until I reach my goal weight.

Have a nice weekend everybody.

I know how you feel... I just said "goodbye" to my nightly small bit of ice cream. Obviously ice cream isn't helping me lose any weight... LOL! Darn it! WTG on "letting go" of the oatmeal. Hugs!

Bren - so glad you have your Hubby's cooperation - at least for now. No oatmeal today - think I'll make us a nice omelet.

I miss oatmeal. More so then bread even. Kinda strange.

When I want hot "cereal" I mix flax meal with almond flour, or use just flax meal. I add water, stir and microwave it for about a minute. I add almond milk and Splenda mixed with cinnamon. It tastes good to me, reminds me of Wheatina.

Karen - I'd rather have oatmeal than a bagel. But it will be a food I can re-introduce when I'm at my goal - and yes, some day that will happen!

Gigi - Heather had also given me a recipe but I only tried it for the first time today. It was pretty good. Don't see why I couldn't mix it up in packets and bring it to work (like instant oatmeal). I have to be at work at 7 AM and that is way to early for me to eat. Thanks!

I use regular oats and mix in chia seeds. I also add cinnamon. I don't know if that is a better option or not ... have a fabulous weekend!

I just ate one on Friday. Been a long time since I had one. Oatmeal is fairly healthy. It's full of good fats, fiber, and complex carbs. I guess the only bad part is that is has a lot of calories for what it is and if you are on the low carb thing you might be in trouble!!!
