Steel Cut Oatmeal

One of my favorite healthy breakfasts is steel cut oatmeal, its kinda like McDonald's oatmeal only better because it's homemade.

1/3 c steel cut oats, Quaker quick steel cut oats
1 c water
1 teaspoon of brown sugar (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 apple , diced (pink lady or braeburn are my favorites), depends on size of apple
raisins or other fruit (optional), I like blueberries
milk or half and half (optional)

cook the oats according to the package, about 5minutes in boiling water. While oats cook, dice 1/2 an apple.
Place apple in a bowl, cover with oats. Add brown sugar, milk, fruit, to your liking. Enjoy!

your instructions for the sprouts are right on, roast them in the oven, sliced in half, drizzled with olive oil and some salt and pepper. I roast them for 10 minutes and then flip them over, roast another 10 minutes until done.

I learned recently to bake the fish with orange slices. place the orange slices on the foil, then place the fish fillet on the orange slice, cover with another orange slice. the orange provides amazing flavor and keeps the fish moist while baking.. its so quick and easy, dinner is ready quickly!

I have one. I've learned to have groceries delivered using Instacart, that my first tip.

My next one is try roasted brussel sprouts and salmon filets in the oven. Easy, delicious, nutritious!

That's what my medical team said, keto is not something sustainable. But my heart goes out to those with metformin and failing kidneys. I would keto if that were my plight

@lioness I just talked to Judi, she suggested these things

no Keto diet for me, that's a fad thing, cannot keep up with fad diets
30g of carbs is my target
drink four bottles of water a day
no fasting, eat 3 meals
eat 1 fruit, mostly veggies
have the nuts, but small portions, like 8 almonds is a good snack in the afternoon
LoseIt has me targetting 1400 calories to lose 20 lbs by September, that sounds reasonable to me
no rice, no potato chips, no potatoes,
eat a balanced diet, smaller portions

I just found an app, called Carb Manager, that says to target 21g of carbs for someone my height and weight. Hmmm

I forgot to say that Dad smoked cigarettes, along with the rest of the drinking and lived to be 88. His diet wasn't great, and I'm sure he could care less if he could spell keto, lol.

I wonder if the docs and researchers study these kinds of people? Drinking and smoking and living to 80 or more?

I had my walnuts, peanuts, cukes tonight, I sure miss my dad 🙂

When I talk to my nurse tomorrow, I'll get a carb count Target for the 'diet' and share it

Dad lived off of peanuts, KFC chicken, frozen shrimp and cocktail sauce, and vodka martinis with a variety of vegatbles in his drink, and he was thin, never fat, and lived to be a happy 88 years old. I wish pubmed would study these types of situations and let us know if there's scientific evidence to show if and how his diet or lifestyle helped him live to be 88? stress reduction seems to be key.
