I love steel cut oatmeal, not the rolled oats. I've been eating Bob's Red Mill, found it in the health food isle.
I'm heading toward being diabetic, and my lipids are increasing. We discussed taking a statin, but I can't take statins due to my myasthenia gravis! statins can make some people flare with the MG. So, I modified my diet quite drastically, which is one reason that drove me to start this conversation regarding diet.
I've been finding fruits and vegetables that are red are really helpful to reduce my autoimmune symptoms, red cabbage, red peppers, dark cherries…. blue berries, arugula, dried cranberries, strawberries. I've been eating mostly vegen this month, it's really reduced my symptoms (I think) at least I'm attributing my symptom reduction to my new diet of fruits and vegetables. I even have red cabbage cole slaw for breakfast when I make some!
