My evening snack:
Oatmeal made with 1/4 C caramel coffee and 3/4 C soy milk.
Add-ins: goji berries, mulberries and sunflower seeds.
Mixed in a dash of cinnamon just for good measure…
Bad picture, I know.
- 1 C soy milk
- 1/2 C rolled oats
- 1 Tbsp goji berries
- 1 Tbsp craisins
- 2 Tbsp raw sunflower seeds
- 1 Tbsp powdered honey
- Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in no particular measurement.
Om nom nom nom nom. I LOVE the texture the sunflower seeds give it. And dried gji berries (sometimes called wolfberries) plump up so nice. This has been my breakfast for the past week and a half. :D
Did you know that oats were once considered a weed? They were only fed to livestock and human consumption was only by the absolutely poor and only when starvation was immanent.
Did you also know there are six (count them, six) different varieties of oats!

Like many of you, I LOVE oatmeal. Always have. But I am a bit of an oatmeal snob and I refuse to eat instant or microwaved oatmeal. It’s the stovetop for me every morning.
This morning, I decided to be a genius.
Normally I do 1/2 C oats, 1 C soy milk and a splash of whatever extracts or dash of spices I want. Well… this morning… I decided to put in a serving (6g) of powdered pudding mix. De-freaking-licious!!! This morning I used vanilla. Tomorrow I might break into the chocolate or the butterscotch.
If you use the sugar and fat free mix it only adds 25-35 calories of sweet deliciousness.
(Note* “recipe” is mine but the picture is not.)
Best plan ever… plus it’s totally 0830 here and I still need breakfast. :D
om nom nom
Sometimes, I’m certain I’m a genius… Then I wonder if maybe I’m actually an idiot for taking so long to think of the genius thing?
Oatmeal cooked with Stevia, soy milk and coffee… and coffee extract. Om nom nom nom nom. I did about a 50-50 ratio of soy milk to coffee plus about 1/2 tsp coffee extract. Oooooooh so good. (Note: photo is not mine. I ate it too fast to take a picture.)
