Posts Tagged ‘oatmeal & apples’

Chop an apple into cubes, removing the core. Place chopped apples into a saucepan with 1 cup of water. Simmer for 10 minutes.

After simmering for 10 minutes, add oatmeal and additional water (1 cup oatmeal = 1-3 additional cups of water, to taste).

A pinch of salt, and several shakes of cinnamon (to taste). Stir in a half teaspoon of honey.

Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes, dependent upon on desired consistency.

Oatmeal is not a complete protein. Therefore, it is necessary to eat it with nuts (almonds, walnuts), sugar free yogurt, or have some meat or a couple eggs on the side (any style). An inadequate amount of protein in the morning will set us up for a sugar roller-coaster for the rest of the day, i.e. that ravenous feeling that strikes about an hour before lunch and then again in the middle of the afternoon, then again before dinner, and once more before bed. Craving sweets at these times of the day indicates an insufficient amount of protein for breakfast and lunch, not as is popularly erroneously believed, a sweet tooth.
